Design and advertising illustrations

Theoretically, visual art has no limits.

Everything you can imagine can be drawn by the illustrator or the poster artist: it could be a dream model, smart and smiling, surrounded by her 8 twin sisters, a paradisiac island without mosquitoes or a castle in Spain without having to leave your office, or Paris under the snow with the river Seine with warm and crystalline waters lined with coconut palms …

A DRAWING AND A UNIVERSE

Advertising agencies seek to convey their clients’ messages with strong characters or graphic universes: they then seek an illustrator – or a poster designer – to enrich the brand’s universe with original pictures.

IDEAS

These projects begin with exchanges during a brief. We must awaken the ideas! Whether I am in my studio in Nantes, Paris or on a journey, I often find inspiration in memories of scenes from the past, characters who have moved me on the street, on the café terrace, or women I met during my travels.

Whether it is fashion illustrations, posters, products (for example packaging), I start by drawing them in my head …

Then come the pencilled drawings, the customer’s approval, and finally setting the colours.

These are often fairly long projects, but usually exciting because the stakes can be significant.
