Thomas’s passion for art has led him around the world. He honed his drawing, painting and modelling skills at L’Atelier de Sèvres in Paris. From there, he moved on to another French art school, ESAD in Strasbourg. But the course wasn’t as he’d imagined.
“I learned how to talk about the subject,” Thomas says, “without ever actually doing any drawing or painting anything.” He left, in 2008, and fell into “a lot of boring advertising jobs and uninteresting illustrations to pay the bills.” But the artist had built a portfolio, mainly consisting of personal projects, that would lead to more interesting opportunities.
Thomas is now in the “very exciting and inspiring” position of being a teacher and senior concept artist at FZD School of Design in Singapore.
Vegetopiaire “These kind of topdown views are a way to reveal a lot about a world. This one was done for a project set during the Renaissance.”
Kikidonc Couleur “I alway think of the real title of piece as being Happy Humanist.”
Sandra’s Workshop “A view of the interior of Sandra’s workshop, a character from a personal project.”
The Trusty Steed “This personal illustration plays with the idea of a child being able to achieve great things. I find the Jeanne d’Arc theme pretty inspiring.”
