Concept Artist - Post-Collapse painter
Los Angeles , United States of America

I'm a Concept Artist from France currently working in Los Angeles. I have five years of work experience in Games, Animation and Film. My experience covers a spectrum ranging from worldbuilding and pre-production to hands-on work in CG animation pipelines.
I've recently started a series of oil paintings to raise awareness about the risks of collapse of industrial civilization in the late 21st century due to energy supply and the climate crisis.
