Marc Bouyer is a French character designer, visual development artist, and 3D modeler. Originally from Marseille, France, he now lives and works in London, England. He is a member of the S.T.E.A.K. Kollective, and has worked for companies including Nickelodeon, Ankama, Golden Wolf and Feed me Light.
Bouyer and team were working on Muffin Jack & Jeremy. A vibrant, off-the-wall animated series centered around a crime-fighting duo, one of which is a chocolate muffin. The show was commissioned by Ankama Animation and began production 2011. It was originally scheduled for release this year, but I believe the project has now been dropped. Which is a real shame when you look at the care and enthusiasm that went into it.
More recently, Bouyer worked on a unique advert for skincare. Kiehl’s – A Husky Story centers around Jim, a small quinoa husk, following his “journey from his home on the quinoa farm to then be a fundamental ingredient in the new Kiehl’s Micro-Peel product.” Typical of a S.T.E.A.K. Kollective project, it is cute, funny and masterfully executed.
