Welcome to my website.

I have the pleasure to show some of my drawings.

For a long time, I had been just happy to have created my drawings, but never really considered showing them to my family or to my friends, just thinking they would have – someday - some opportunities to see them. Time went by, drawings added one to another, and mostly remained stored inside a box.

Recently, I discovered with great pleasure a fellow illustrator’s website, and I thought :
« … I now also need to go ahead with that ! »

 

 

 

 

I'm working on the illustration of the novel « Ceux de 14 » by Maurice Genevoix for the hundredth anniversary of World War I.

I illustrated « Vol de nuit » written by Saint Exupéry – printed & edited by Gallimard/Futuropolis. Here are 38 drawings out of the 85 illustrating this book. Shown in such a way on a computer screen, they reveal all this brightness that I wished to bring in. While unfortunately once printed onto the book paper, they became dark and dull.

I have started to illustrate these three books that I particularly like…

« Captains courageous »
by Rudyard Kipling
« Le Grand Troupeau »
by Jean Giono
Capitaines courageux, de R. Kipling Le grand troupeau, de J. Giono

 

I also show two Comics books, which are currently under creation.

Nuits d'hiver « Winter nights »
I wrote the scenario of this spy thriller, which takes place during the French campaign in 1814.
La tranchée des Irish guards « the Irish Guards trench »
A story which takes place in 1916 in the Somme trenches. I wrote it from a short novel by Kipling.

 

Finally, you will find here many drawings & preliminary sketches from these various projects.
