A Real Pitch Is Coming


I'm so happy to see there is people coming on the blog. Feel free to give your comments (English and French is good, otherwise I'll google translate it).

I'm working on many animated series pitch right now. A new idea came to me and I don't want to keep it to myself. I want to share it with you guys to get your comments. I want to make it perfect and I can't do it alone. The synopsis is already written but I want to make some quick designs to make it real, not just words floating in the air.

I can't wait to work with you on this! :)


Run Ryan Run

In a future not so far...

Ryan runs as fast as he can. He looks behind from time to time but can't see anything abnormal. There is just the normal disintegration of the urban landscape fill with the dirt of ages. Ryan keeps running knowing something is coming even if he can't see it. He sees a gas station not too far on his way. He sprints as fast as he can and hide behind one of the pillar supporting the roof over the pumps. He takes his breath and looks behind him. A giant robot emerge from the deserted town landscape. The robot search something destroying everything on his way. Ryan tries to be as silent and still as he can be. He looking around for an escape. The robot gets closer. Ryan sees a huge damaged electric cable. Ryan starts running toward the wire hoping the robot will step on it. The robot starts running in Ryan's direction. He break the gas station roof in pieces with his torso and hit the pillar with his arms. Ryan runs while big parts of the roof fall around him. Ryan jumps to the ground avoiding being crushed by a part of the roof. He looks behind. The robots step near the electric wire but don't get shocked. When Ryan thinks it's over, the robot drag the wire with his foot and trip. As the robot fall, the wire stretch and breaking the  rubber layer. The robot get shocked and falls on Ryan. The roof falls down on the robot.  Dirt and silence surround the scene. Suddenly, Ryan is conscious but confuse. He tries to free himself from the debris. He looks on the ground and see his body unanimated. He looks his hands. It's the robot's hands. Ryan looks around and can't see the robot body. He sits on the broken roof, looking at his human body and trying to make sense of this.

In this wrecked future, hope has come out. Oil it, fix it and a new peace can be.

A Day Off

An image is often more effective than words. I decided to make a comic strip this week. I wanted to put him naked at one point but it didn't bring anything more to the story so I kept it this way. I hope you will like it!

Once Upon A Pirate

Once upon a time a pirate wanted to rule over the seas.

One day while drunk driving his boat, he sailed right into a lighthouse. The light felt strangely attractive he told to the other pirates. His credibility as a pirate was ruined. Since the accident, the pirate was afraid of water. He almost drown because he didn't knew how to swim. Some laugh at him because he didn't knew how to swim and some laugh calling him a sissy. There weren't so nice with him. Being a pirate was after all mainly about pride... and treasures... and fights... and treasures... and drinking... and well... treasures. The pirate had broken his ship, lost all his treasures and most of all, his pride.

Sitting at a pirate bar, an old waitress tells him he must drink or leave. The pirate explain her the story and that he can't even afford a beer. Everybody laugh at him. The waitress whispers to his ear that she would trade him a beer for sex. As much as the pirate is disgusted at the old lady, he is pretty sure a beer will help him to get on the right track to become a proud pirate again. The next morning he wakes up and realise he stills in the old lady's bed. He shouts, the old lady wakes up and almost make a heart attack. He thinks about how he feels and he still don't feel like a pirate. The old lady tell him he actually never drank the beer, he fainted as soon as he saw it. While getting dressed, he ask to the old lady if they did it. She answers: "No but it's not too late!" and winks. The pirate is disgusted and run away.   

The pirate realise that he must get rid of his fear of water. He put his swimsuit and go to the beach. He stretch himself, get focus and starts running to the water. As he approach the water, he changes his mind and start running away. A wave touch his feet. At first, he shout in fear but slowly realise he is still alive and in one piece. He gets in the water up to his knee and have a hard time going further. A other wave hit him and without further notice, he is now in deep water and panicking. He starts sinking in the water and a wave push him back on the beach. After regaining consciousness, he looks at the sea and shouts: I don't trust you anymore! You, sea of a bitch!

With the pirate still laughing at him, not able to sleep at night and waking up too often in the old lady's bed; He decide to go at the pirate library to find a solution. He looks in every books about water, swimming and flotation systems. He try most of them but none of them works and at one point he's completely discouraged. As he shouts his rage in the library, the pirate librarian asks him to keep quiet. Taking him in pity, she ask him what he is looking for. He explain his problem and librarian whispers something to his ear. The pirate is excited and ran away in joy.

The next day, the pirate go to the pirate bar and spend the whole day eating in exchange for sex. At the end of the month, the old lady stops feeding him because he is too fat and not attractive anymore. He smiles and gets out of the bar. The pirate laugh at him but he doesn't care. Curious, they follow him to the docks where all the pirate boats are. The pirate gets naked. He is so fat now that he look like a big round ball of ham. The pirate stretch himself, gets focused and run toward the water. As he land in the water, his body creates a giant wave that breaks every pirates' boats.
Since then, there is one pirate in the history of pirates known to have rule the seas alone during one month floating through on the water because he was excessively fat.The pirate sadly died from a heart attack while being chewed by sharks. True story! (reference to Barney Stinson)

Thanks for reading!

The First

I start with an illustration. The blog will be more in text form than in any other form but I felt it needed something big to start. Here's Flash worst ennemies, flies.

A New Blog

Hi! I'm starting this blog because I would like to work as a story artist in animation (storyboard, script writing, directing. Creating series, film and comic books...).  This blog is kind of my training dojo. I'll write short stories everyweek on this blog. I'll also suggest books, story artist to keep an eye on and other story oriented websites. I hope you will enjoy it! Feel free to comment and help me in my adventure.
