What program/tools do you use?
I use Photoshop CS6 for almost all my works along with an old Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet (that I should change very soon ><). I also use from time to time Painter 12 because its oil painting and watercolor tools are unique, but also Paint Tool SAI. When it comes to traditional art, I use Liquitex Acrylic painting, Copic markers, Prismacolor pencils, watercolors (nothing fancy, just what I find in supermarkets) but also ballpoint pens.
Where do you get your inspiration?
A bit everything! Movies I watch, books I read, songs I listen too, even people I see on the streets. Music videos from the 1990's are a big inspiration too. Also, a lot of my inspiration comes from other artists I find on the Internet or when I browse books at my local bookshop: James Jean, Adam Hugues, Ryan Meinerding, Alex Ross, or Chen Shu Fen & Common. Classic artists such as Leyendecker or photographers such as Pierre & Gilles are amongst my great influences too.
What are your primary fandoms?
Supernatural, first. I’ve been producing artworks for this fandom for six years now. Now, I’m also in the Marvel fandom, particularly Stucky (Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes) and I even created an art blog especially devoted to the life of Bucky Barnes
What project have you always wanted to do?
A Supernatural fanbook, something that would be mix between sketches, comics and previously unseen B&W illustrations. Unfortunately, where I live, in France, printing this kind of things is extremely complicated because we don’t have a “dôjinshi” or a self-printed fanbook culture. It costs A LOT of money. What I also would like to do is illustrate medical articles for magazines or books.
What is your favorite work?
If you talk about my recent works, I really love Barnes, Rogers! For the love of God!! which took me about 40 hours to complete. When it comes to older works, I have a soft spot for some of my old Supernatural drawings such as Winchesters Laundry Day and The Whirligig Farm.
What is one thing fandom doesn’t know about you?
I collect rosaries. Also, I worked as a "voice" in Japan for French language learning methods. If you are Japanese and if you're learning French, there's a chance that the voice you hear on your textbook tape and that tells you to "open your book on page 4" is mine ^^
