A Journey in New York !

Hey, I finaly had the time (and the internet connection) to do a review about the fantastic trip my wife and I made in New york this fall !

Of course the city was great ! But most of all I wanted to speak about the amazing artists that I have meet there.

I have work a lot with Doug Gregory for the last years and FINALY had the joy of meet him !! And all time that we shared was good time, thanks a lot, Doug !

He is the man (Art director) behing a lot of Blizzard’s publishing projets ! So he was for the Book of Tyrael and on this incredible short animation serie: The Burdens of Shaohao.

Here are some pictures (from http://www.blizzplanet.com) of the two of us signing the Book of Tyrael at the insight booth in tne New York comic con !

Greg Manchess: Once again, I didn’t knew the art of Greg Manchess before this trip. How ignorant was I… I went to see his exibit at the society of illustrators… that was such a good time. His paintings are very strong and impressive ! Just go see his art, it speaks for itself.

Une réflexion sur “A Journey in New York !

  1. Amazing artists indeed. Greg Manchess’ painting is probably the craziest of the bunch for me. Excellent craft!

    That being said, I absolutely have to brag about the fact that Geoff Darrow, when he has seen my version of my British Bulldog(http://www.worldofmakles.com/dotclear/index.php/post/La-Survie-de-l-Espece-3), has said (in french!):

    « C’est GENIAL Je suis jaloux! »

    It’s pretty cheesy to bring that up but you have to indulge me: I didn’t expect one of my personal god to ever have such a comment on my stuff. I would have love to meet him like you did and speak about British bulldogs and how do you impose them in the comic book to your collaborator(s).
