Marc-Etienne, born in Troyes, France, then moved in Lyon where he studied Illustration at Emile Cohl school. He now lives in Paris, where he works as a freelance illustrator.
He thinks sitting too close to the TV watching Cartoon network when he was a boy, is what got him into drawing. But it’s his teenage skateboarding years that really drew him into illustration, enjoying the work of people such as Jeremy Fish and Evan Hecox.
Marc-Etienne likes to draw colourful and humours scenes with playful characters.
He has worked for several advertisement campaigns, but really likes magazines’ related work as well as children’s books illustration because it allows him to have a more offbeat approach and funnier results.
His opinion is that, in the world we live in, working with computer graphics is a must, but he also enjoys a more hands on approach for his personal work. For example he really likes watercolour but also uses linocut for its raw and simplistic result.View Full Bio
