Benjamin Lacombe is an amazing young illustrator born in Paris in 1982. What I love about his work is that he captures his own little magic universe, with traces of influences from Tim Burton, Hitchcock and Edgar Allan Poe, and magically transports us into this world with his art.
Benjamin attended the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs of Paris (ENSAD) where he pursued his artistic education in 2001. In addition to his studies, he worked as an advertising and animated movie artist before completing his first comic series at the age of 19. He has written, illustrated and published many books since and exhibits his work regularly all over the world.
Benjamin currently lives and works in Paris with his dog Virgile.
