Draw this in your style challenge

General / 22 September 2020

Thanks to Facebook, I rediscovered this illustration.
I did it for The Character Design Challenge, in 2015.

This is Detective Claire, she is badass, and she resolves crimes like no one else.

If you want to draw Claire, let me know with the hashtag: #DTIYSMargaux on Instagram (or Twitter)!


Insider Art on Kickstarter!

General / 04 September 2020

I had the chance to create some illustrations for the amazing project "Insider Art".

During the 2020 Covid-19 crisis, the comics community saw our beloved retailers struggling to keep their shops going. From "shelter-in-place" orders to economic uncertainty, business owners were left without much support. Not only has the pandemic negatively impacted their livelihood, but it's compromised what all of us need these days: a safe space. 

For many, comic book stores are a place of acceptance, joy, and discovery. This is particularly important for people of marginalized genders who might not have access to other inclusive places with like-minded individuals, which means it's specifically important to provide assistance to comic book stores owned, operated, and staffed by women and people of marginalized genders.

That's where INSIDER ART came in. Developed by Shelly Bond, INSIDER ART assembled 150 women and non-binary comics creators from around the world. This 270-page digital anthology raised over $5K on Gumroad, with all of the proceeds benefiting 28 retailers who reached out for support. And now with your help, we want to bring a softcover version of the book to everyone. 

150 female & non-binary creators came together during a global pandemic to represent the greatest artform. The money will help the Believe it!

Mythological characters, French folklore

General / 29 April 2020


A marte or marse is a fallen fairy of a frightful ugliness who, during night hunts, tries to quench her insatiable carnal appetite. Men who cross her path may try to flee, but she chases them until they fall from exhaustion. They are known for throwing their breasts over their shoulders while screaming «Suck, plowman! ».

Thought Bubble was amazing!

General / 19 November 2019

Thought Bubble was already 10 days ago! I'm finally back from my short break after the convention.
We went to London and Paris, it was wonderful!


I went to Thought Bubble last year, when it was in Leeds, and this year was in Harrogate. The new place is really amazing and beautiful. Like last year, I had the chance to meet some talented people, David Lafuente, Simone D'Armini, etc.

This convention is really the best, it focused on the art, comic artists, but also illustrator, painter etc. After this kind of festival, you are just full of inspiration and motivation!

Thank you, to all the team, and volunteers!
See you next year!

A little interview with Jimmy Aquino, if you want to listen my bad french accent!
