It’s been a long time and some things happened.
I worked for a lot of different clients in the past few months.
My design portfolio shows a selection of the latest projects.
Recently I also launched my own brand called “Messieurs Dames”
and a german-speaking contemporary journal called “Le Milieu”.
Feel free to browse through the sites!

It’s been a while since i have time to post some of my artworks. Here it is. My recent series called ThINK™ :
” ThINK is a series of digital art blending modern and traditional art, digital painting and ink, poetry featuring the artist’s life, a sort of “tribute” that band around a single question: What’s define the soul of an artist?
Reflect on what forges the soul of an artist: his influences, his career, his successes, his failures, his encounters, love … What makes them beings apart and embody or incarnate the beauty of art in its most beautiful form. “
Illustration dedicated to Neil Armstrong
Text over image // Multi-layered // Mask
Another recent addition whilst working on a couple of mask related images. Was looking at ways to produce a chrome effect to sharpen the surface and give it some depth/dimension. Using a variety of mediums, this exploration is what I would see as part of a sticker set or a board graphic.
Inspired by Ukiyo-e & the transmission of tales.
…Should mock one up!

InkFace / New Development / Mixed Media :
Here is the latest edition of artwork.
In a nutshell my own development using an array of mixed media, every tool I have is being used fully and cranked hard!
This has been a long time coming, so for me, it is a milestone reached. After a few discussions around the table, plenty of caffeine, days melding into nights and nose to grind. I have been looking through a vast selection of old work that to me, is just that, old. The only way to push past this kind of ‘block’ was to scrap some, keep some, build anew. Still the same one man show, but this time, more determined with a whole trunk of focus.
I am very aware that this point was reached well over a year ago, during this swift development, one of the main factors was by reading my personal journal posts and how slow and frustrating the process has been.
To quote the previous post, production time is now much swifter, paying much close attention to mediums used + file types to ensure size aspect & resolution stays exact.
Fully confident that this will develop much further as my own language as an Artist and Designer.
