Q: How to get artworks from you?
A: First, look at the existing images in the personal gallery, maybe there is already what you searching for, then just contact to get information about how to purchase it. Not the thing you’re searching for or have a particular concept in mind? No problem, just contact and expose what you would like, I will answer you asap to tell you my feeling about it.
Q: What is the price of an artwork?
A: All projects are discussed independently, but for sure, my rates are lower than an agency! For more information please feel free to contact.
Q: Can you work images on a particular concept?
A: Yes, but please remember that I’m not a machine, I’m here to help you in your project, but I am and I rest the graphic designer, so I need a fundamental notion of freedom in my work, the result will be better in this way. If you have your concept, send me a mail with all informations I would need, it includes : some of my images as reference (to see what you’re searching for) but also external image references if you think it is necessary, colors, ideas, global shapes, etc… well, all that run through your head, and that could help me to see what you’re expecting from me. In any case, remember that there are a lot of existing images which are still available, take a look at the personal gallery, maybe there is already something that could fit your project?
Q: What is exactly the “personal” gallery”?
A: This gallery contains most of my personnal images, and a lot of them are still available, just contact to discuss on how to get them.
Q: How to proceed when I want to work with you?
A: Send me an email! Of course, I need all the informations about your ideas, all inspiration, eventually some exemple of images, references, colors, number of pages, number of products printed, etc… all that could help me to know the kind of work you exactly need. Please, try to be clear in your explanations, and to not send me too much files, otherwise, it might be confusing!
Q: What do you need to start working?
A: After we agree about terms and what have to be done, depending the work asked, I will need some specific files, click here to download a brief check up of what I might need (PDF).
Q: What are the delays?
A: The sooner you ask your request, the sooner you’ll have the finished work! As I often work on several projects at the same time, please don’t come and ask me a full work for the next week, it will be impossible. I need at least 1 month for a full project if you really want a serious work, because I think it’s really important to stand back on my work, it helps a lot to see what is good and what is perfectible, patience is always the key. In this way, I also suggest you to send all the files I would need as quicker as possible.
Q: I emailed you, but still didn’t received an answer, WTF?
A: Well, don’t panic, despite the fact that I’m not the “boss of graphic industry”, I regularly received a lot of emails, and as I’m not a machine, most of the time, I need time to reply them all, but be sure I read all of them. So, the only thing I can tell you is : be patient, it’s just a lack of time, but I will reply.
Q: What kind of project do you work on?
A: Any project with visual needs, it could be cd packaging & cover for music industry, books & DVD cover, illustration for mag and many projects else, images are everywhere and I’m not limited to any domain. So if you need anything “graphic” and “visual”, I am probably the guy you need.
Q: Do you make logos?
A: This is not my favorite skill, so most of the time, I would say “no”, anyway, when inspiration comes, I sometime make some, specially when I’m already working on the band cover artwork, for exemple, or on the rest of the project.
Q: Do make websites?
A: I can, but images are my priority, just ask.
Q: What are your tools?
A: Computer (Intel core i5 2500K 3.30 Ghz, 16Go RAM), graphic tablet (Wacom), Canon EOS 60D, Photoshop CS 5, The Gimp, Inkscape, eyes, brain, music, time, coffee, time, coffee, and still music.
