    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.

    Introducing French concept artist Alexandre Diboine, also known as Zedig. His artwork has been used for film, advertising and video games. He is one of those illustrators whom seem to make it all look easy. Self-taught, Mr Diboine produces beautiful environment and character designs, quite effortlessly floats between styles, and can work in both 2D and 3D to boot!

    To see more of Alexandre Diboine’s enchanting work you can catch him on Blogger, tumblr, and deviantArt.

    Here is a little bonus for those of you that are thinking, “hm, I wonder what brushes he uses?”.

    Aurore Damant is an illustrator whom all of us at the Lounge have been long-time fans of. Her illustrations are spirited and humorous. They combine flowing shapes with a harmonious pastel pallet. Importantly, even though simplified, her characters are distinct and their emotions bountiful.

Collaborating with top animation companies including Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and The Illuminated Film, Ms Damant has helped develop TV shows Gravity Falls, Robotboy, Eliot Kid, and Commander Clark.

    We were recently contacted by a young French artist whom goes by the mononym Klemt. His large illustrations are comprised of short lines using China ink and a traditional quill pen. His illustrations have been exhibited in Limoges, Paris, Brussels and New York.

    Klemt’s artwork is the representation of his personal thoughts and questions. Starting with a statement like “Everything Will Be OK” and allowing the drawing to manifest itself. The result of that particular statement can be seen in his piece La Fille A L’Echelle.

    Check out more of Klemt’s illustrations on his website.

    I was happily wasting my time on tumblr, when the incredible artwork of Guillaume Singelin showed up. He is a French comic book illustrator and author whom collaborated with Antoine Ozanam on King David (2008) and Pills (2010). He is also illustrating two ongoing series called The Grocery and Doggybags.

    His cute, yet lively, manga-infused style grabs and holds your attention. His work is skilfully drafted and beautifully rendered. You can see more of Mr Singelin’s artwork on his tumblr, and website.
