    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    my dear and respected colleagues and friends !! Since I'll have the significant honor to also be an instructor at the MADE workshop in Berlin, I thought it would be nice to make an update and participate to the overall great vibes around this exceptional event.

    1st pic was a good way to try and pour a bit more of my love for abstract painting into my more illustrative art than I usually do.

    Pallas - watercolor + gouache + photoshop tweeks

    next was supposed to be a cover but the image was finally refused. Nonetheless, I liked the art so I decided to remix it as a Valkyrie fanart.

    and last but not least, it's been months since the Merlin book is out in france and I realize I never showed anything on CA ! WTF ?!

    the cover / collab with Aleksi of course

    with all my consideration,
    I hope to meet you guys in June, at the MADE in Berlin natürlich !

    yours truly Rope


    ---------------------
    I'm re-reading Robert E. Howard these days, so I had to do a couple of Conan fan-arts... if I have more time I'll try a Bran mak Morn piece next

    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    that one's a quickie, I just had to draw his famous sword move.
    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    This is a cover I did for Richard Morgan's Steel Remains. It's not Conan related but I thought it could fit:
    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    hugs to Coro, Mel, Andrew and Dobsky ! I had a blast seeing you again in Berlin my friends.



    ------------------------
    Happy New Year CAorgians ! I can't believe 2010 is already there.
    I spent the last 6 months touring around France to showcase my book Merlin with my buddy Aleksi, and now that i'm back to my desk I find out that I didn't show anything more personal on this board for ages. Let's fix it.

    I am currently working on the (not so) sequel of Merlin. The codename is Avalon, and I'm working on it all alone (text + illos + graphic design). I'm currently in the writing process but I began painting things too, in order to keep my ideas clear on this project, and also to stimulate my creativity. I can't resist to share a couple spoilers with you:

    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D
    the book will be more pagan / cosmic / ecology oriented than Merlin, and also a bit darker.

    Now for some more candies.
    First comes a piece I did for the Venus Robotica exhibition in Paris at le Cabinet des Curieux gallery:
    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D
    the sketch:

    more infos here: http://cabinetcurieux.com/cariboost1/

    This is a personal piece that I proposed to über-talented doll artist Virginie Ropars:
    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    She did a brilliant work translating my 2D designs (look at the hair !) into the 3D world. The sculpture /doll is 1 meter tall !

    different novel covers:

    a "bit-lit" one for Succubus Blues by excellent Richelle Mead.

    another cover I did for Tor Books that I never showed:

    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    this is Cheree Furiosa (the mascot @ Les Furieux), I think I didn't show them here (sorry if it's a re-post):
    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    some speedies / quickies / rough:
    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    I did that one one night I couldn't sleep. Now I can see the Kekai Kotaki inspiration, but I wasn't conscious of it while painting. Big up anyway sir

    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    and a POP illo that was supposed to serve for marketing purpose but that finally was never showed (too dark maybe... of maybe too ugly ? )
    mMAAADDEEEeee !! + zupergeil dump :D

    and this is mostly it. All I have to tell you now is wish you all the best for this year to come, all the success, all the love, all the health...

    Hey JS. Magnificent dump. Nice to see you in Paris this weekend and thanks for taking us to see Furieux the bar that inspired the illustrations. A very cool place to drink if visiting Paris. Can't wait to see more of Avalon. It looks fantastic. Keep warm my friend as we're home but knee deep in snow.

    I'm not a fan of surrealism, but I love the realistic stuff. Overall, an impressive body of work. I'm sure that if I liked surrealism, I would like your surrealistic stuff too.

    great work.. love the textures and mood..

    have to say the dolls pose in the 3d version looks a little odd with the arms..

    wonderful stuff..
