Me, in a few words ►
I’m a french illustrator & 2D background artist/props designer living in Tokyo. I’m a very optimistic and joyful person, and I love to draw cute and colorful things that make people happy. I gratuated in 2017 from art school and worked on TV shows like Molang, Didou and Stinky dog. I also had the chance to work on a show for Netflix!
Some key dates ►
Graduated from art school, spent a month in Montréal for an internship & found my first ever job in animation! This is also the year I decided I wanted to experience the freelance world.
Launched my business officially and started experimenting a lot with my art, with photography & writing articles
Launched my shop & Patreon page, and finally started experimenting with products & resources to help other artists grow their business! This is the year Creativi’tea was born ❤
Moved to Japan & started doing freelance work for multiple companies, especially sticker sheet designs which has been a dream for such a long time!
Illustration & travel ►
I traveled a lot since my graduation but there’s one country that changed everything: Japan. I found there a home away from home, and a place of endless inspiration. I ended up moving there so yeah, love story here 🌈
My favorite themes ►
My favorite themes to work with? There are quite a lot, but I have to say everything Japan-related, and especially illustrations I create based on my own experience of the country, like Onsen scenes (those wonderful hot springs you can find anywhere in Japan), nature, lanscapes and all those funny packagings. And food, of course!
I often use my own photographs as references – I have ALWAYS a camera with me, whenever I go, not only when I travel. I also love to draw cute, fun and colorful characters, and I am more and more into animal illustrations. I am also fond of portrait design and products design.
My style and my favorite mediums ►
As you can see, my style is really colorful. I’m really into vivid colors, and it’s really important for me to keep a consistent visual identity.
I mostly use digital tools such as my Ipad pro, procreate or Photoshop with a wacom cintiq, but I’m also really into traditional drawing. I’m often doodling in a sketchbook with color pencils, gouache, Posca markers or any cool pencil I can find! I really love working with textures and fun brushes. I’m always trying to get outside of my comfort zone, even if it’s not always easy!
