I am frequently called upon to create drawings for presentations and explainer videos or advertising videos or education videos.
My style of drawing videos and explainer videos differs from the vast majority of video productions because they are actual drawings which unfold, drawn by an actual artist who knows how to draw. The appearance can vary in different illustration styles, we can use color, we can use painterly brush strokes, pen, or pencil sketches. It is an actual work of art unfolding. The intrigue also lies in what unfolds first and what unfolds next.

Vacquières est un village pittoresque et historique de la région du Pic St-Loup dans l’Hérault.
En tant qu’illustrateur et dessinateur résident, j’ai été très honoré au fil des ans lorsque le maire local, M. Jean-Baptiste Panchau, et son prédécesseur m’ont demandé de mettre mes capacités créatives et de conception et design logo au service de la communauté.

A really fun project was this animated Holday Greeting card to be sent to the customers of my commissioning client.
The briefing required a nice, hand-drawn cozy looking winter scene. We opted for an inviting winter chalet in the woods surrounded by snow covered trees and featuring the AN2V logo.
The drawing is rendered as a timelapse video. Watch the drawing unfold, a lovely winter forest scene, a chalet with warm light spilling out onto the snow, and then the company logo is drawn, illuminated by the warm glow. A gorgeous, warm and elegant holiday card solution.
The video was also delivered as an animated GIF so that it could be used and viewed in e-mails directly on all devices.
Below a YouTube video presentation of 10 animated greeting cards for various occasions. I had the pleasure of inventing and designing this series of animated greeting cards for client 1&1 Mail & Media GmbH for GMX, Web.de, Mail.com Germany via the agency dieKLEINERT.de
The topics that were presented to me in the briefing were: Happy Birthday, I’m Sorry, Thank You, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Get Well Soon, Happy New Year and Thank You!
(with YouTube Video Radio Interview with Mascot Designer Ian Marsden)
I n 2002 I was contacted by the organization for the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in the renowned pristine alpine resort town of St. Moritz, Switzerland. I was informed, that I had been chosen as the designer and illustrator to create the official mascot for the event.
Clean and clear line-art illustrations intended to explain how to prepare and use Henkel cleaning products (Bref, General) and their effects and lasting protection in the kitchen, bathroom and toilet. The artwork needed to be understood without words / language independent.
As an experienced character designer for over 20 years, I have had the great pleasure of accompanying my clients in their search for a dynamic ambassador for their brand or event and creating a design that fit like a glove.

Starting with the Corporate Identity and Logo Design, Branding and Brand Manual, GUI graphic user interface and UX user experience of the software, over 60 original icons for the iconography and unique visual language of the product as well as many business illustrations, marketing print materials and the homepage design in WordPress. We also created stickers, embroidered patches, flyers, sell sheets as PDF and print documents and Power Point pitch deck presentations.

It’s been a while since I updated my news blog. Things have been rather quiet on the project front due to the pandemic (like for many), so I don’t have a lot of new client work to show you, but I thought I would say a quick hello.
I recently started a TikTok channel, where I mostly post recordings of live drawings (digital and analog). So if you are on there and enjoy drawings, drop by and have a look.
I only have 120 followers here so far, so you can become a member of a highly exlusive club. 😀
