What is the best thing that I love about my work? What I like most about my job is the ability to work where I want and to organize myself the way I want, the opportunity to give birth to everything I care about, Is also the variety of forms that my creations take (comics, game, article …). I do not get bored ! What I like the most is the deep joy I feel when I hold in my hands the realized object that incarnates everything I dared to imagine …
What is my idea of perfect happiness? For me, the perfect happiness is to feel in one’s place, it is to be exactly who one is in the right place with the right people, it is to allow oneself to live according to one’s values and to put one’s talents in the service of what deeply delights us: it’s to be in his charism!
What is my greatest fear? My greatest fear is that people do not understand what I’m trying to get through my creations, that they stick to a superficial reading, that they are not touched by the message … because that’s what matters to me.
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? My shyness ! I have the audacity but it does not prevent me to feel shy, a little reserved when it comes to affirm what I believe and defend what I write, which annoys me … But I’m working on it!
What is my greatest extravagance? I think my greatest extravagance is to love staging and questioning sexuality. This surprises many people who always ask me why I write this kind of things!
On what occasion would I lie? In general, I do not lie because the lie puts me off. I need authenticity. But I would lie by saying that I never lie: I can forget to say that I write erotic texts, for example, not to shock those who could be … !!!
What is the influence of role models, in my work and in my life? Of very literary formation, I am a fan of classical authors like Zola and Camus and I imagine that they influence me without my realizing it. For the comic strip, Van Hamme and some American comic writers such as Bill Willingham and Brian K. Vaughan are my role models! My collaboration with the generous Christian Rossi also teaches me a lot.
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? What I like the least in my job is having to wait for a publisher’s answer is to depend somehow on the decision of someone other than me. I dream of the day when I will be so famous that I will be answered in the hour!
When and where was I the happiest, in my work? The moments of real joy in my work is when inspiration falls on me when I did not expect it, when I suddenly have the idea of a project that is written almost on its own, without any effort: they are completely magical, those moments!
If I could, what would I change about myself? Younger, I would have had plenty to answer! Today I am working on a personal development game that aims to help us recognize our qualities and see our weaknesses as the ingredient that makes us human, so … yes : I would like to be more at home with the computer tool … and with the English language !!
What is my greatest achievement in work? My greatest achievement is undoubtedly to come … I have the project to create a collection of erotic comics (really erotic, not pornographic) intended especially for women, the idea being both to de-dramatize sexuality, help women reconcile with their desire, with the magic of sex!
What is my most inspirational location, in my city? The place that inspires me and me most in Lyon, is the park of the Tête d’Or: the trees are sublime and I can make there full of nature. I do not write but the contact of nature allows me to hear more easily my desires and the new ideas that emerge in me.
What is my favourite place to eat and drink, in my city? Le Bouillon paradis is my bar and my favorite restaurant: the place is both peaceful and warm and the cook is a real chef! In the morning, we also find divine homemade vegetable juices … Miam!
Who is my greatest fan, sponsor, partner in crime? My greatest partner in this adventure is my generous and cheerful friend Sarah Lechevalier who believes in me, encourages me and in the company of which the ideas never stop firing! She is probably my greatest fan and my biggest ally.
Whom would I like to work with in the future? Almost all my projects are projects of partnerships since I write scenarios for which I need designers and games of personal development that require illustrators … and I love it !!! My big dream would be to work on one of my erotic scenarios with Milo Manara …
What project, in the nearby future, am I looking forward to work on? I have a lot of projects that are important to me right now, but the one I’m really looking forward to is creating a blog to understand, activate and celebrate the magic of life. I have been saying for a long time that if everyone had the opportunity to learn how to live life magically, it would be wonderful!
