Jak & Jean

Here's a little drawing I did for a serie I'm working on. This guy is called Jak McCoy, and he is an adventurer. Each month on the Dandy Manufacture, I'm releasing a painting where we can see where he is and what he's discovering = ) 
Also I did a little tribute to Jean Giraud, aka "Mœbius" and "Gir", a great french artist who passed away March 10th. To be honest, I discovered his illustrations very lately, and I read a few things from him, so I wasn't directly influenced by his work. But  I know that a lot of great artists that I admire were, and it was for me very reassuring to know that this guy was drawing somewhere, on earth. I hope new generations of artists will have interest in his very rich works. Also if you can try to watch interviews of him : They are little treasures of informations about how to understand Art.

Rest in peace sir.

Stay Tuned.

The Fellowship of the Ring

I recently watched  "The Fellowship of the Ring", and while sketching in front of it I had this idea... Hope you will like it = )
I'm really enjoying black & white. It's cool to be free from the pressure of the choice of colors. 
Some close-ups :

Stay tuned !

Hi there, long time no see ! I should have uploaded this blog, but I'm very busy these days. I had to move from Paris, to come back to my home town, and then... I will soon depart for Montreal ! Yeah ! I'm at the dawn of a new adventure, I can't wait to drown myself in this land for a whole year.
I will try to feed this blog with at least sketches, maybe illustrations. Speaking of it, my buddy öckto and I launched our common website. it's called 'the Dandy Manufacture', and you can see our works  here 
More things will be posted on it through the year. Just throw an eye on it, I will be glad if it please you = )

But right now I'm going to show you a little serie I did the last month. In fact, it's a serie of gifts and commissions : the Poker party was a gift for Sosou , the talented webmaster behind the Dandy Manufacture ; The raccoons ambush was commission for a friend, who will give it to her nephew; and finally, a friend asked me to draw him a cool Panda.

I think I will do more of humanized animals, it's kinda fun.

Stay Tuned !
