Episode 2400 (English version)

I was kindly asked by my buddy Paka (for non-French-speaking readers: a groovy French comic artist, blogger, and UI designer) to make a little comic for the 2400th episode of his blog! The story obviously started as a collection of private jokes... and turned into this epic-yet-absurd tale involving him, myself and some colleagues & premises from when we were working together earlier this year (in a "big French video game studio") 😆

It was originally published yesterday on the The Paka Blog, but since I was asked for an English version, I'm posting it here too! Enjoy! 😘💜

Les tourments

To celebrate the beginning of another rusty October, here is my doom metal rendition of French rapper ANTHA's beautiful song, "Les Tourments" 💀



2020 brought many calamities, but some good stuff too. Among the good stuff, I discovered ANTHA's solo album "Spleen" - an amazingly dark and ethereal album, and so far my favorite this year. I was already a fan of ORTIES (her rap band with her sister) and this goes even beyond. The production, the ambient, the lyrics (in French of course) are superb. I dare to say that I consider "Spleen" like a modern goth gem, and I don't care if "it's a rap record, it cannot be goth"; to me it's all about aesthetics, and here there is definitely "that thing" I like in dark music!

Last August, I was SO MUCH into this album that I decided to work on a doom metal 'adaptation' of the song "Les tourments", as I found that the words would suit so well this kind of mood. Enjoy! 😌

Mytho Logique: 10 Years

On this very day, 10 years ago, I graduated from my animation/vfx art school with the release of Mytho Logique, a 3D animation short film I co-directed with 4 friends. This little film was the starting point of my professional carreer, and 2 months after graduation, I left Montpellier to start a job in London.

I put a lot of myself in it, and I must admit, 10 years later, than it probably has been the only time I got this chance. As a result, this film remains an important achievement to me and I am very grateful people are still entertained by it, given the number of views and comments on Vimeo and Youtube and the fact that the audio was translated in other languages! It is simply amazing.

To mark the occasion, I wanted to revisit quickly the world of Mytho, and since I don't work in 3D anymore, here's an illustration! Fun fact: the composition is very loosely based on "The Infancy of Bacchus", a painting by Louis De Boulogne The Younger (1654-1733). Enjoy!
