    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.

    DZO Olivier is an illustrator and artist currently living in France. His work reminds me of the power found in simple black and white ink illustration, with its intricacies and imagination. If you visit his Behance page, do take a look at his ‘Inkstinctive’ project. The artist describes this project as follows:

    No eraser, no pencil Every mistake is an opportunity to create unexpected images.This work explores the interconnections between inert matter and living matter. At the same time, I still explore processes of the unconscious.

    His coloured paintings bring about an exciting hint of David Mack’s work (comic readers will no doubt remember David’s stunning ‘Kabuki’ books).

    Aurélien Predal is another talented alumni member of Gobelins. He currently works as a visual development artist at Sony Pictures Animation. He contributed to the excellent Sketchtravel project, and he has also successfully been funded on Kickstarter to produce a short animated film titled ‘Batz’, which was co-created by Max Maleo. It’s incredible, the way his loose marks create these magical environments.

    Elsa Duhamel is an animator and visual development artist from France. Her work is so beautiful; I couldn’t help but go through every video on her Vimeo page. The soft lighting and generous textures are always evident, no matter which medium she works in. Her characters have that charm that I think goes missing in a lot of mass-produced animation.
