The Secret Life of Pets - DVD available!

The Secret Life of Pets is now available on DVD and Bluray! Good news because it means I will finally be able to show you some of my work on this movie! I worked on it for a bit more than two years, painting characters color references, a few sets and a lot of color keys! I'll post a whole bunch of these artworks in different articles during the foloowing days. Here is a little selection of colorkeys first, as an aperitif!

Comme des Bêtes est sortit en DVD et Bluray! Une bonne nouvelle puisque je pourrai désormais montrer quelques travaux que j'ai pu faire sur le film. J'ai travaillé sur ce projet un peu plus deux ans, sur des peintures de personnages, quelques décors et beaucoup de color keys! Je posterai tout ça dans différents articles dans les jours à venir. Voici une première sélection de color keys, pour l'apéro!

drawing music #2 - Season of Mists


Here is the second artwork that I did for the "drawing music" challenge we are doing with my composer friend Erwann Chandon.
This time, it was his turn to start composing the music on wich I had to draw. The lyrics are part of the poem "To autumn" from John Keats, and the song performed by the wonderful Mylène Ballion!
Thanks to Nicolas Sanchez for his help with english.

Voici une nouvelle illustration réalisée pour "drawing music" le petit défi qu'on s'est lancé avec l'ami Erwann Chandon.
Cette fois ci, à son tour de composer la musique puis à moi de faire l'image qui va avec. Les paroles sont tirées du poème "A l'automne" de John Keats, chantées par la formidable Mylène Ballion!
Merci à Nicolas Sanchez pour son coup de pouce en anglais.

"SEASON of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
        Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
    Conspiring with him how to load and bless
        With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run"

drawing music #1 - The Lost Otter


"Drawing music" is a small ping pong type challenge we began with my friend Erwann Chandon, composer. The idea is that I do an artwork on wich he will create music, and then he composes a piece of music on wich I have to draw a picture. And so on. A very fun collaboration to explore different universe for us both.

"Drawing music" est un petit défi ping pong qu'on s'est lancé pour s'amuser avec Erwann Chandon, un ami compositeur. L'idée est de faire une illustration sur laquelle il compose, puis à lui de créer une musique sur laquelle je dois dessiner. Une collaboration très sympa qui nous permets à tous les deux d'explorer de nouveaux univers.

japan

 
   
 
I'm coming back from a month and a half in Japan, travelling from North to South, from Hokkaido to Kyushu, trhough Tokyo and Kyoto. An amazing journey where I wish I had more time to draw and paint. But walking around and discovering the wonderful japanese landscapes, people, food and culture was even more attractive. I'm still not sure it really happenned... Love you Japan!

chapi chapo

Back in 2013 I had the opportunity to work on the new version of Chapi Chapo, the french stop motion TV series created by Italo Betiol and Stefano Lonati in 1974. I had to adapt the character designs and do the colorscript for the teaser. Moving Puppet did a great job developing this project. I'm happy that it keeps going to production and will be released in 2017 on TV. Check out the teaser here or below. All these artworks are © Moving Puppet / Cyber Group Studios

eau-de-vie

Mon frère prépare sa propre eau-de-vie et m'a demandé de faire quelques étiquettes pour ces bouteilles. 
Santé grand bien !
My brother is making his own eau-de-vie and asked me to do a few labels for it. Cheers !
