Born in France, Ben Fiquet is an animator and illustrator for video games and comics. My first introduction to Mr Fiquet’s work was the 2006 short animation he, and his fellow Gobelins students, produced for the Annecy Festival called Pyrats. It is one of my favorite Gobelins animations to date, and I remember at the time of seeing it hoping it would become a series. I’m secretly still holding out for that one.
Equally adept in character and environment design, Mr Fiquet puts that to good use in his comic work. Titles include Les chevaliers de la Chouette and four volumes of Powa. More recent he contributed to the star-studded, and much anticipated, Kickstarter project Masters of Anatomy.
Hope over to Ben Fiquet’s website see more of his work.
