lighthouse studios


I just finished my job as a lead background artist on a TV show in Lighthouse Studios. The studio is only a year old and it was very exciting to be a part of their first project. I had a lovely time working within such enthusiastic people! I hope to be back someday!
I always liked the logo and as I had a few days off, I built this lamp logo and offered it to our wonderful studio assistant Ruth to decorate her reception desk. That was great fun!

Hope to share some of my work there soon!

I was happy to give this watercolor to an art auction among other Lighthouse Studios and Cartoon Saloon's artists. The money raised will help Nuria in her volunteering travel to Madagascar to help children. It was a great success and a nice overview on the fantastic creativity that is happenning around here. You can have a look at all the other artworks here.

fête nationale suisse

As most of you know, I'm Swiss, and I have this wonderful memories of every year 1st of August, national day of Switzerland. When the sun is set, everybody is walking in a single line with lanterns to reach those big fire every village sets in a harvested fiel, and together we enjoyed the fireworks. Beautiful moments...

it's a boy !

Eh oui, me voilà papa! Mon petit fiston Gaël est né en juillet, et avec lui est apparu beaucoup de bonheur et plein de découvertes! Il est vraiment génial et se porte à merveille jusqu'ici. Pour l'occasion, j'ai fait ce dessin à l'aquarelle pour son faire part de naissance.

Yes indeed, I'm a father now! My beautiful son Gaël is born in July, and with it a lot of happiness and discoveries! He's absolutely wonderful and doing very well so far. To this occasion, I did this watercolor drawing for his birth annoucement card.

a wedding in the woods

Last weekend I intended to a wonderful wedding in the woods. I saw this nice rock so I took a few minutes to sketch it. I added color later on with photoshop. I should do more of these!
Félicitations Marie-Elodie et Giuseppe !

I finally saw "Holly Grail" for the first time a few days ago. So many great characters in this movie, I couldn't resist to do this little illustration.

The Secret Life of Pets - color keys part 1

During the production of "The Secret Life of Pets", I had the opportunity to work on some color keys. I had a blast doing these! Working closely with art director Colin Stimpson, I learned so much about color, light, values, composition and more in only a few months. I'm proud of being a part of the warm and colorful atmosphere of the movie, and I have to say a huge congratulations to the lighting and compositing teams for honoring my color keys and making the final picture even better! Bravo!
In the end, I did 250 color keys, of wich you'll see a selection below. Enjoy!

Pendant la production de "Comme des Bêtes",  j'ai eu la chance de faire quelques color keys. Je me suis régalé! En travaillant avec notre directeur artistique Colin Stimpson, j'ai appris énormément sur la couleur, la lumière, les valeurs, la compositon et encore plus en seulement quelques mois. Je suis très heureux d'avoir pu contribuer à l'ambiance chaleureuse et colorée du film, et j'en profite pour saluer le travail formidable des équipes de lighting et compositing pour avoir honoré mes color key et rendu l'image finale encore plus belle! Bravo!
Au final, j'ai peint 250 color key dont voici une selection.
