    ILLUSTRATOR - CONCEPT ARTIST - ART DIRECTOR

THIS IS WHAT I DO

Calvin and Hobbes changed my life.
As a teenager I was completely drawn into the world of this little boy and his stripy friend. I wanted to spend my whole life in a universe where dinosaurs can be jet pilots, sledge rides always start at 6000 meters height and teachers regularly show their real monstrous nature. That was the first „virtual world“ I used to live in and I loved it.

This love consequentially led to my studies as a comic artist in Lyon/France. I wanted to create these alternative worlds where others can live in and have experiences they couldn’t have nowhere else.Today we have the possibility to „really“ create parallel universes where millions of people transform into trolls, soldiers, elfs, witches, kings and nearly everything one can imagine.

My passion is to create this worlds and everything that populates them. Concepting, design, paint and model landscapes, cities, vehicles and creatures of any kind, that help to make these worlds believable for gamers and trigger their own fantasy to complete them.

WHERE TO GET INSPIRATION FROM

A QUESTION I OFTEN BEEN ASKED is where do I get my inspiration from. So I post this pic I took in the rest room of my favorite coffee shop. I saw this thing so many times and I always thought "Man, this is a perfect inspiration for a cartoony squid!" It has a kind of a sad / astonished look in his eyes and mouth and I like relationship of his big eyes to the
