Gravityculture


Categories / General and Making of.

Gravityculture is a reference to the movie Gravity married to the word viticulture.

After the chapter of harvest, illustrated last year for the chivalry of the Tastevin, the summer and space inspired me.

During a chapter (banquet), there is a Chair, as in the Parlement, but with people more attentive and festive in the pantry that serves as a Chamber. For this one, I had a feeling…
As the name of the president is kept secret until the night of the dinner, and last year was rich in space news, I immediately thought about coming to the Clos de Vougeot for a “Star” interplanetary, and I was right!

Anyway the idea of photography was the “star” rotates, as it would tonight, around the wines of Burgundy. So the wines were represented as an agglomeration of corks of great vintages where gravitate logs of Pinot noir and Chardonnay.

It was necessary to realize the spaceship and the planet.

The result was much appreciated on this evening, and I had the privilege to shake hands and kiss to not one star, but two! Claudie Haigneré and our chapter president: Thomas Pesquet. (French astronaut)

Unfortunately, the format of the menu did not have to see the details of the suit, because it was well inhabited by the astronaut.

Marketing Landscape

LSA magazine (Retail magazine)asked me a picture to illustrate the groceries in supermarkets.
A willingness to make a landscape with paths, littles figures and four food universe.

The sketch prepared by the AD is no longer accurate no?

Ok, mine isn’t either very clear, but it helps a little.

Ultimately a very colorful diorama purged of the accessories on the sketch whose original format gives a little more margin for the final layout.

Pizza HuTT

You’ll eat of Star Wars for more than a month now before the long-awaited a new episode release. The Minimiam so clings to the outer train tribute to films that have become true icons of popular culture.

We have often said that our images aroused something from our childhood. It’s a playful aspect, which is of course no exception to children, especially to my daughter, who two months ago, submits me a simple idea: “you know, Dad, the ships of the empire, they look a bit like pieces of pizza. You should do something with your figures.”

This famous idea needed to be action, history. A duel between Yoda and Darth Vader seemed the most emblematic.
Brilliant, dazzling idea even! As for simplicity, is something else.

Realize the characters of the famous saga at this scale is much longer than I would have thought. Yoda on this scale is smaller than a fly.
Princess Leia here is a pizza delivery and Chewi in ambush behind the crust.

As the title suggests, the famous brand of Pizza with only one T in his Hut, to served as a model for the ship, because just as American as film production, one might wonder if George Lucas wasn’t a fan of the franchise? For those who are not familiar with the Saga, in the third episode (years 1983, return of the Jedi, become the episode VI.) the villain Jabba the Hutt is an antagonist become essential although not present in the saga.

As well, as all science fiction film, photo does not escape “special effects”, which take more time than shooting in post-production it even.

For purists, excuse the duel between Vader and Yoda, it never took place.

That appetite is with you!

Clea in the studio


Categories / Making of.

Clea is a student in a high school in Paris. One of his teacher was part of my promotion to Arts Décoratifs de Paris, and so she steered Clea who knew our work.

So that’s working with another person. Being not pedagogue and believing that I have not much to teach to my work, it took me a lot of resources to give a dimension of learning at this stage.

Fortunately Clea is a young girl full of curiosity with a general culture that was well beyond my expectations. So it was very rewarding to me.

At the end of the course I suggested to Clea to make an image “minimiam” style with the elements she wanted. I was not disappointed!

In this close-up, we selected two characters we symbolizing. Clea in post production has remade her hairstyle and apart from the clothing, it’s really her.

The great idea of Clea, was to take as object principal and spray of bleach (Javel) is in the studio to change the typography. To illustrate her photo placement, she is get in my collection of toy camera to make a background. Here is the sketch.

The construction of the image has been source of trade volumes, colours and light.
I find, in the end, the very successful photo of Clea. Bravo.

I wish a good creative road to this young talent.
