Overview

As far as I remember, I always wanted to become illustrator. I drew my favorite heroes when I was eight years old and I now draw your heroes and the world they live in.
Following my passion, I entered an art formation in high school and spent three years in a graphic design school (ESAA) learning skill I'm used to work with daily.

I needed a tool that allows me to add a lot of details on my illustrations without fearing to lose numerous hours of work. That's why I now work exclusively digitaly. It's fast and flexible !

Video games are probably my principal inspiration, especially those taking place in imaginary worlds.
