(I can't understand a word he's saying, but I love the fact he has a Snoopy poster on his wall. :) )




"I was welcome as a kind of exotic star, it was really nice and fun.
as for the proper interaction with Disney Studios - it's a huge company, it's something completely amazing, I was...
Were you really the star?
I was star in the sense that I was very well received, I was well paid, I had a car, I had an apartment, even a mansion, etc...it was a thing of dreams, for two months I really lived the dream of a hollywood star.
But workwise, there really is no stardom - it's super efficient teamwork"

Sweet - thanks for the link! :thumbsup:

Some of his work almost has a Winsor McCay feel to it.

It's also unmistakably French. I'm not sure exactly what I mean by that but it has an unmistakable Fantastic Planet, surrealistic style that is dominated by lots of detail frilly bits.
