Please introduce yourself and tell us something about yourself and your background.
I'm a french artist making picture & music.
Actually i work in home textile making the collection & design.

What makes a good illustration in your eyes?
A good illustration must contained something's very personal.

Could you tell us something about your work process, how do you setup a new project? Do you start? How long does it take to develop a project from the scratch to finish?
I try to project my interior life in picture.
I work with sample like music.
In music i sample something (voice, bass line...) and i work around this sample.
It's the same with my graphic work , the music sample is in this case a picture.
I can work 2 weeks on a picture, or one night all depends...

To what extend do you allow clients to influence your work?
Actually, I don't work for custommers, I only do my feeling in personal pictures.

What key feature are you missing in the application you most work with?
The 3dimension is missing with Photoshop & Illustrator.

Computer or Ink?
Only computer

The thin line between art & design is sometimes hard to define. Do you consider you work to be art or design? Why?
I don't care, I just need to create something personal, some people will say it's design, other say it's art. Who knows?

If you had an unlimited budget and all the time you needed. What would you do?
I would open a gallery and expose pictures.

Who is your biggest inspiration?
A lot of my sample are from google pictures, i do a kind of google art.

How do to you keep your knowledge up to date? Do you spread your knowledge at universities, conferences or workshops and so on?
I work alone in my home or in my office, im not connected

Who do you envy? Why?
I'm looking for a gallery to expose my work, to share my work & sell my pictures. The problem is that the art world is a close market.

Which project or website would you like to have made, or make?
La tour eiffel

Final words?
Bijou is bijou ?>
