Ville Usine

Here are some pictures extracted from the comics. I just wanted to show the Factory of Factory City... I had some fun trying this factory to look like a possible one. It was very interesting to recreate the same place in differents angles. Trying to keep the buildings at the good place, make the same architecture etc... Mainly because it's all imagination... I think that at the time, i made a little map of the factory... but i can't remember where, and i also lost one of my sketchbook. The first one where I did the whole story... [Lire la suite]

For the exhibition, I will add a banner in front of the building. The banner is made to catch the eye of people... It’ll be 3 m on 1,20 m. In avant-premiere, here is the design of the banner... I still have to work on 1 or 2 things on it... but that’s how it’s gonna be. Hope that people will see it and go to the exhibition...

Painting Steps

BRUT... This exhibition will show some paintings as you know now... If you go and check "album Images", I just added a painting which should be shown. I put different steps of how I did it. It's in bad quality, but at least it exists... I hope you'll enjoy this little thing... I still have 20 days to set up this exhibition... Right now my house has turned into an atelier... Paintings of 2 m everywhere... I'm still working everyday on it... I still have millions of things to be ready... Hope you'll enjoy the show.
