I was approached, thru a common friend, by two comedians, to work on their promotional poster for a famous french summer festival. After a few drinks in a café, with the two crazy and insanely funny guys, I started to throw a few ideas on paper. The pencils you see above where done in a café, waiting for them on a second meeting. This served as a test, since they had so many great ideas. I would push this one a little further and see if it worked. Their sense of humour is mostly based on non-sense. The caption under the "Loïc and Seb save Willy" goes " Come on, l'il Squirrel... Fly!" They liked the rendition of their concept, but to be honest, we agreed it looked too much like a comic book cover. That could misguide the audience. Plus they came back with a bunch of new ideas, as fun as this one. I had worked on concepts too, and proposed this art below. They liked it, but not as much...
... As this one - which was their idea - which happened to be also my favorite. They decided later to change the color chart to red instead of blue, for the type, but I think this one works better.
Comme l'a dit un jour le célèbre linguiste Jean-Luc Lahaye, accueillant Barry White dans sa préstigieuse émission de télé culturelle... " Welcome to here! "
Ceux qui connaissent déjà mon travail seront ici peut-être un peu déstabilisés par les croquis et autres petites aquarelles, ou dessins d'humeurs qui n'apparaissent d'ordinaires jamais ailleurs. Une autre facette de ma personnalité qui s'exprime par le biais de ce blog.
Welcome to you all! Those of you who know of my more commercial art might be surprised to learn there's another facet to me. Or not. Most of us artists usually spent a fair amount of time doodling, sketching, in the subway, in parks, in cafés... If you are an artist and you don't do this, understanding the world you live in will take muuuuuuch more time!
