Drawin' 'cuz that's the only thing that entirely makes sense.

Having an Akira comic book by the bed makes me want to draw more.

Hi guys!

I didn't drop a whole lot of drawings or bring drama to my journals as often as I used to, right?  Lately I've been busy between finishing up work on video games. Saw the E3 event last week?  I did a whole bunch of storyboards for two of those games announced. It's pretty crazy right?!

In other crazy news : I'm moving in a week and half!  New apartment.  On my own this time.  'Bout freaking time.  It's what pretty much dominates my thoughts these days and I can bore people to death talking about cardboard boxes!!  I'm looking forward to it and can't wait to see how things will be once I settle in : D

If you've known me for some time, you know I draw on the bus everyday.  Nowadays it's mostly just gesture-style drawings to keep my hand loose.  I still put way too much time in playing video games but it's improving and I'm keeping myself busy with other stuff and trying to stay in good shape!

So all these are reasons why I haven't drawn much presentable stuff or didn't offer much sign of life in these journals lately.  I'm still behind on that portfolio too and I have no plans for a Summer vacation yet.  guh

Stay toasty kids!

Just a quick 3 minute sketch for kicks of how I sort of used to draw (actually it was worse than this) before my twenties and how I draw now in my thirties.  Actually it's a lie.  I'm gearing towards realism these days and I'm not sure if I enjoy it. hahahahaha                             ha
So I didn't update my billing info with Go Daddy, which I have used for something like 8-10 years?  But I'm becoming old and dumb and lazy and updating web codes to upload new images or make new layouts is just something I don't have a lot of skills with anymore.  I don't know how to make a good modern website.  So I think I'll bid adieu to it and use some of those more automated websites with pre-made custom layouts.  Sadly deviantArt isn't the proper environment to show my works to potential clients on a professional level.  Got some good ones in my sights and ...well...dammit.  I'll have to work on my portfolio as my linkedIn profile now links to a dead site.  I wasn't expecting that.  Just sharing.  Take care guys and gals

*EDIT : Since I'm already paying premium on deviantArt (and not really using any of it's features!) I get access to the portfolio portion of dA.  Gonna use that for the time being : 3

I'm a storyboard artist with 2D animation skills (and college degree) and with a childhood dream of doing comics. Currently I do storyboards for video games aiming for excellence in visual storytelling while also doing other tasks helping people have a clearer picture of all the hazy confusion there is when starting a project and through milestones. I hope to storyboard on big movies someday and maybe release a self-made comic book or two in the future.

Current job : Storyboard Artist at Eidos Montréal - Square Enix
Current Residence: Canada (Montreal,Quebec)

Est ce que je peux te poser quelques questions... ?
