There are days like this, when photoshop has the last word.
I'm working a lot on the Mouse Project and I really want to share with you what we do with Laurent, but everything in its own time!
For now it will just be Life Drawing things, that's what we post when we don't have anything else to show, and this running guy (haha running guy...running gag...haha....ha...)
See you soon!
Je travail beaucoup sur le Projet de la Souris et j'ai très envie de partager avec vous ce que l'on fait avec Laurent, mais chaque chose en son temps!
Pour le moment voici quelques croquis de Modèle Vivant, c'est ce qu'on poste lorsqu'on n'a rien de plus intéressant à montrer, et puis y'a ce mec qui court (...ça se traduit ça?)
And I have done some little drawings for a couple of Plays in Paris, I love to see the comedians working before the show, finding their actings and having the point of view of the director, curiously that's not so different from what our directors say to us while we are making storyboards.
J'ai aussi fais quelques petits dessins pour des pièces de Théâtres sur Paris, j'adore voir les comédiens répéter avant le spectacle, lorsqu'ils cherchent un acting et travaillent avec le metteur en scène, ce n'est pas si différent de ce que l'ont fait en tant que storyboarder en fait.
For now I'm still working on the storyboad, starting to edit a little bit.
It's so great to work on that project...
...and here are two sketches of the last drawing class we had
As Illumination Macguff is an AWESOME Studio, people who realised there was a lot of musicians in here asked if we could make a concert, the answer was the 1st of November at the Point Ephémère in Paris.
We were like 10 bands playing this night, and that was amazing!
this is a picture (took by Laurent Blue) of one of the two bands I'm in, the Musicians Tourists.
Last year, while I was doing storyboards for the Minions Movie, I have worked for the Spirou Magazine as well, and I have to say it was very welcome to do something totally different. It is very important to do various things, to clear your mind, to do something else, no to be drowning into one only subject, to stay on earth, you know.
So I was doing the Minions Comics.
That only had the purpose of complicate the explanation of what I was doing as a storyboard artist, to friends who weren't working in the cinema industry;
"Hey I saw your storyboards in Spirou Magazine this week!"
But anyway, it was really fun to work with Didier Ah-koon (who found all the ideas and gags - the guy is a machine) and I'm really happy to have had the chance to work with Spirou HIMSELF.
Now I have my own projects and I left the team, so I didn't do the new Minions Comics you'll see into Spirou Magazine (which are really cool!), but here are some of mine, I hope you will like it!
I'm still discovering the 50s in America through young Bill Bryson eyes, and it keeps inspire me for illustrations (=
Apparently communism was one of the biggest fear at that time, anyone could accuse the neighbor to have a suspect behaviour without any real proof. Scary.
He is a writer that my friend Hermine told me about, he wrote books like Life and Times of a thunderbolt kid and A walk in the woods, he tells things that happened in his life with a huge sense of humour!
This illustration is inspired by a scene in Life and Times of a thunderbolt kid
I did a little first test for the Mouse project (I'll soon find a real title).
When I first thought about making a short movie with this mouse I was thinking doing it in black and white, because I don't really know colors...but I'm so fascinated when I see paintings like Clément does at Macguff, his colors are so... powerful! It really makes me want to try.
Here I took the image from my previously post and tried to put some colors. I guess the only way to learn is to do, to fail, and to do it again.
