Night Riders
Tous les ans depuis 25 ans a lieu en août à Anglet la compétition de surf en équipe appelée "Surf de Nuit". Comme son nom l'indique, elle se déroule de nuit, par équipe de trois. Les surfeuses et surfeurs utilisent des boards équipées de LED de couleur lors de 3 manches de 45 minutes. C'est un spectacle sportif et visuel hors du commun qui offre des scènes d'action à couper le souffle.

Plein Ciel 2017 brochure
Plein Ciel is a french office supplies and stationery Company. I was asked by Resonnances & Cie to create the cover of its 2017 brochure. As the Plein Ciel's logo is a red square, I chose to create little white and red cubic office supplies in order to show the range of products in a fun and creative way.

BeforAfter, a roller derby project.
Roller Derby is a tough sport with a lot of hits, drops, touches… It requires a very good physical condition and great knowledge in game tacticals. The players body take a huge blow during the 1 hour games. I asked some derby girls to posture before and after a game so that we can see the changes due to the physical effort. And I must admit that the results are very disparate. This serie was realised for the french sport website Big thanks to the GENT GO-GO ROLLER GIRLS, NANTES DERBY GIRLS ET DIRTY RIVER ROLLER GRRRLS – TURKU ROLLER DERBY for joining the project.

Le Mariage du Bout du Monde
I had the honour to create the visual identity of my little sister's wedding. She and her husband chose to say yes to each other in a music festival wedding theme. So after inventing a name I created the branding of the event. Logo, brochure, goodies… We did everything like for a real music festival! It was an awesome work. and of course an awesome wedding.

Gears of War Toy Soldiers
D'aucun disent que la nuit, les jouets prennent vie. Que feraient donc les personnages du jeu vidéo Gears of War au milieu de mon salon, entre mes chaussures et ma table basse ? C'est ce que je me suis amusé à imaginer dans plusieurs visuels alliant photographie, design graphique et retouches numériques.

Honda CB 750 Four Custom
I found this beautiful custom Honda CB 750 Four in the streets of Nantes. I just couldn't resist to take a few pictures of this awesome bike. I don't know whose ride it is but it's surely a stunning cafe racer!
These are my illustration works. I mostly draw them for metal/hardcore/grindcore gig posters. I love to mix medias so I first use my good old pencils to sketch the picture and then add colors in photoshop. I'll try to feed this project as often as possible. Hope to add some new works soon!
