most people who wondered where i went all this time, might have understood that i had become a comics author here in france, so the international community couldn't really see my work anymore.
that always saddened me, plus it's not up to me to get my books translated, and it rarely happens in the french publishing industry... alas.
anyway, here's maybe one book that might interest some of you! a small format artbook with lots of my work, mostly from my CA years, it's released very soon.
My french is rather rusty, but if I understand it correctly, shipping anywhere outside France will cost as much if not more than the actual price of the book, which is already kinda pricey at €15 for 48 pages imo.
You very likely have no influence or say on that matter, but it's still a shame.

hehe it is my workspace yeah, i work in a studio with a few other artists. by now though there has been some changes in my corner, the middle shelf on the right is housing the terrarium of my baby boa constrictor imperator, as i have a bit many snakes at home at the moment. ^^
many thanks for your purchase, i'm very glad you enjoyed it!!
it's rather nice, i work much better since i share a studio with people, the ambiance is great and i have room to install toys all around without my wife freaking out!
we can also share ideas and work together somtimes ; the common shit in a studio!
I was in forbidden planet in dublin today and was suprised to see Bengal's sketchbook. It's lovely. So if you can't justify the massive shipping it might be worth your while to check if there's one near you.
