How did you become an artist?
I became a freelance illustrator right after graduating as a Master 2 in Law and Communication at Paris University. Before starting an office job at a communications company (what my studies were heading me towards),
I wanted to take the chance to see if somehow my art could be interesting for press or advertising. It was basically: now or never!
I used to do fanzines and illustrations on my own, and I also did few works like illustrating postcards. I created a portfolio book together and started taking appointments with art directors. Luckily, a few months later I found an agent who brought enough advertising commissions to pay my rent which eventually got the attention of Elle, Cosmopolitan and other magazines to do some printing illustrations. All of that was before my current career in comics.
Where do you get inspiration?
Mostly in the street! Peoples inspired me.
What’s your hardware setup?
I have a laptop and a Wacom Cintiq 21 UX, I just bought an iPad.
What do you like best about Clip Studio Paint?
The perspective rulers, the stabilization for pen, the possibility to bring 3D objects and rasterize them and the speech balloon system.
How long does it take you to make a single illustration?
1 day approximatively.
Would you consider Clip Studio Paint an industry tool?
Indeed it is within the comic books industry!
