    DZO Olivier

    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

    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.

    Hugues Mahoas is from France and works in the animation industry, with his background art standing out as a real strength along with his character design. I love the eerie quality in his work, and he has a special talent for picking colour combinations that are unusually brilliant. Visit his blog for more.

    Parisian Julien Bizat is a talented former Gobelins student currently plying his trade in feature length animation amongst other things. He is a talented illustrator, animator and character designer that I’ve admired for a few years now, so it was about time I shared. There is a lot of brilliant work to be found on his blog, from development work to finished artwork. Enjoy!
