ABOUT REMY COUTAREL

  • Bonjour,

    From what I can remember I have always been interested in art.
    I grew up in Clermont-Ferrand, France, and spent my childhood pouring over Franco-Belgian comics, my first source of inspiration.

    In 2007 I graduated from a graphic design school in France and later moved to Seattle in 2011.

    Art is how I express myself and I can’t make it through a single day without drawing, whether sketching on the bus, making comics or working on an illustration. It has become a necessary daily routine that makes me who I am.

    I enjoy experimenting with different styles of illustrations. The most important part for me is the experience of translating an emotion and a message through the ink of my drawings.

    I have been working with different businesses, artists and associations doing commission work, and have also self-published comic books.

    My 4-year-old twin boys are a huge inspiration to me, especially in creating children’s illustrations. I am currently working on a picture book.

    I would be very happy to answer any questions about my work and technique whether you are interested for commission inquiry or a curious artist who wants to lean more about my art.
    I hope to see you soon.
