Location: Matane, Quebec, Canada
Duration: Nearly three years as a freelance illustrator.
Staff: Myself (with my wonderful agents Anna and Sylvie from Anna Goodson Agency).
Education: I graduated from Laval University with a BA in graphic communication.
Cultural Influences: I am also a musician and I began my illustration career creating material for bands, including my own. In that way, music has been a big influence on my work.
Environment: I work from a home office in my basement. I really love working at night, when everybody is asleep. With two kids in the house, that’s the only way I can complete my assignments without being disturbed!
Philosophy: I believe the secret to success is a mix of having creative ideas, being communicative with clients and putting the ego aside.
