If you have come all the way to the last section of this website, you're probably looking for answers. Specially to the following questions:
Why, just why.
By the way, how?
What to look at?
The start of BriacEdition coincided with the start of my professional life. At the time, I had already created some of videos and had hand-drawn a few games, and I had clearly enjoyed that. Surprisingly enough, I was even a bit proud of these things.
So on the eve of my professional life, my biggest fear was that I would no longer have the creativity to do these things, and that I was slowly going to become a zombie.
I therefore decided to launch a creative project. This project would be part drawings and part blogging. I called it BriacEdition, as I was very admiring of my friend Joel who had created his own JoelEdition.
I started drawings spin-offs from JoelEdition's character Boulz, on paper, computerised with a scanner. Then 3 Things Happened That Changed My Life Forever, You Won't Believe Your Eyes:
I bought a small graphical tablet
I discovered vector drawing and Adobe Illustrator
The website TheGameCrafter appeared
The combination of these three things gave a more professional look to my drawings and board games, which encouraged me to continue. Every comics I drew would be published on BriacEdition. All this on a 13-inch Toshiba and an A5 tablet, and mostly wearing a green and white Ralph Lauren shirt as evident on the autoportrait pictured here.
So, what is this all about?
Basically, BriacEdition is a random and fluffy world with many characters and many possible interpretations. Almost nothing here is serious, and it felt weird calling the artwork section "Artwork". Pretty much all of this is for fun.
Comics: the tales of many short-lived characters, most of them looking for their identities. The common thread between most of the stories is Boulz, a character created by JoelEdition, trying to increase his audience. To this effect, he creates many spin-offs, and spin-offs of spin-offs. All of this is better explained in The Book.
One word about The Book: in 2012 when I found myself with more comics than I could publish weekly, I decided to stop publishing online (which was very very logical, I know). Instead, I would work towards a complete and unified universe, which would all fit in a book. The 350+ pages of this book span three years of drawing; this is the best way to understand the full picture. You can order it online Games: I like to create games, and I promise the good ones are very fun, but you need to contact me to know which ones are good :) Many thanks to TheGameCrafter for making this possible.
Videos: various inspirations on various subjects, some with my brothers.
Texts: my attempts at being a philosopher, but really they are fun stories or just rants.
