This is a doodle I did with the Alchemy software, using the random shapes and mirror tools mostly.

Avalon spoilers

[ENG] Since Merlin is out I began to work on the sequel to it. Actually it's not exactly a sequel since the main character is not Merlin anymore. I work on this book all alone (text+illos+layout). The codename is Avalon, and it will also be published by Soleil. I'm still writing the story but I've already begun to draw in order to keep my imagination fueled, and also to keep the envy. I don't resist to share a couple spoilers here ;)

[FR] Depuis que Merlin est sorti je me suis remis au travail sur le tome qui va lui succéder et que je réalise seul (texte+illus+mise en page). Le nom de code est
Avalon et il sera aussi édité chez Soleil. Je suis en phase d'écriture avancée, mais je commence déjà à peindre pour me sexifier un petit peu et garder le feu sacré sur le projet. Je ne résiste pas à vous montrer deux petits spoilers:

Kekai Kotaki-ish speedie

here's a not so speed painting (3hrs maybe) I did last night. Hard to sleep these days, thinking about the story of my next book Avalon.

Not too much to say about this battle piece since i didn't think about it too much. It just came out of my mind this way, and I have to admit it looks a bit too much Kekai Kotaki-ish. Anyway I love this guy's art so I'm not surprised I got inspired, even though unwillingly.

Done in PS.

ok, to celebrate my shiny new blog, here's the piece I did for the Venus Robotica exhibition at the Cabinet des Curieux gallery in Paris. It gave me the opportunity to do something that isn't fantasy illustration, which doesn't happen very often. The image name is Taschenrechner in reference to the famous Kraftwerk robotic song. But I also injected a fair amount of the kind of abstract art I'm influenced by: cubism, futurism, Sonia Delaunay, Moholi-Nagi, Malevich...

Exceptionnally I did a pencil sketch for that one. Here it is:

"Ich bin der Musikant mit Taschenrechner in der Hand..."

Blog new version

[ENG] as you may have seen, I changed my blog address to a new one. The ancient one was hosted in my website, and I wasn't able to get the new functionnalities of Blogger. So I decided to switch to a new one. The bad part is that I lost my archives in the process, but I suck so much at html and that kind of stuff that I had no other choice. Anyway, let's look forward dammit !!

[FR] comme vous l'avez peut-être constaté l'adresse de mon blog a changé. L'ancien était hébergé sur mon site et ça m'empêchait d'accéder aux nouvelles fonctionnalités de blogger. Du coup j'ai switché. Le seul problème c'est que ça fait perdre l'accès aux anciens posts. Mébon, c'est pas grave, il vaut toujours mieux regarder vers le futur pas vrai ?!!

Edit: seems like I finally managed to import my archives. Cool !
