About Me


Become a traveling writer-illustrator !


Well, I'm a standard french boy with two arms, two legs and a great long nose. I use to drink orange juice each morning to get full of energy all along the day. I was born near Grenoble, in a little mountain village. I love skiing but it's too expensive, so I prefer hiking. I live in Strasbourg since 4 years to study illustration at the art school. It's a cute warm city with huge apartments to make parties, tasty beers to drink, but not so much students in the street. Whatever, in summer it become a little peace of heaven.


I'm precisely reading books at the moment to know that.

Born. It was crazy : I cried and there was blood and giant midwife and they cut something and they passed me from huge hand to giant hand and I drunk human milk !

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach... hum what can I teach ? Well, maybe drawing, using photoshop, a few stuff about art history (why not a guided visit at the museum), how don't seems stupid in front of a contemporary art "work" (it's important in worldly meeting), and french language of course !

I want to learn chinese (mandarin) !
