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 illustrated 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
I also show two Comics books, which are currently under creation.
|« Winter nights »
I wrote the scenario of this spy thriller, which takes place during the French campaign in 1814.
|« 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.
