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.
