FML says Cheese !

Ahoy ship's boys and girls ! Today we're heading to France. Be ready to face rain, storm and beer because Lille is welcoming us, and believe me, it's not Los Angeles. Do you all have your raincoats?

-Bonjour ! First of all, present yourself ma jolie.
-I'm Marine Serre. As my parents love Brittany, they wanted to give me a name in relation with the sea.

-How old are you?
-24 years old.

-Where do you live?
-I live in Lille, a city in the north of France, and I work in Roubaix. Lille is a really pretty city with a lot of old buildings. It's smaller than Paris, but it's nicer to visit. It's not always sunny but at least you can eat great food, like the "welsh"… and drink beer.

-Okay, you have all our attention. What's your job?
-I'm a 2D artist, I currently work at Ankama, it's a French office who did Dofus and Wakfu, plus other animations. As far as I'm concerned, my job is taking care of the interface and icons on a hack & slash project.

-What is "hack and slash" ?
-It's a type of video game : Diablo and Torchlight are a pretty famous example of hack & slash.

-Here on FML we've welcomed numerous animators, or artists who work on video games, and they all told us it was originally a passion from when they were kids, a lifetime dream. Can you confirm this, was it the case for you too?
-Yes! When I was a kid I wanted to be an animator for Disney. Finally I didn't choose to create animations, I chose to do illustrations. But this passion for drawing has been with me since I was a little kid.

-Do you have some freelance projects?
-Not yet, my job takes up a lot of my time. But I have some personal projects moving slowly on the side!

-Can you tell us more about them?
-It's a little vague for now, but I'm doing some research on a project which would be between comic and an illustrated album. I would like to do some kind of travel journal, based on a fictitious character I imagined a few years ago.

-Why did you choose this FML and why did you choose to do an illustration for FML ?
-I accepted to draw an illustration because the contact went well! And I selected this story because I was immediately able to picture it, with the family's face in the background, it made me laugh so hard. Plus, it's the kind of thing that could happen to me, haha.

-That's the point, we all have a FML moment at one point in our lives. Before we end this interview, speak french, it'll make this interview seems cultural and sexy at the same time.
-Venez voir la bretagne, mangez des crêpes et beaucoup de muffins

FML loses some weight

It's great to see you ! How was july ? Hot, sweaty, flirty ? How I miseed talking to you (and getting one or two comments if we're lucky enough). But let's not complain, a whole month welcoming artists for their second rounds who gave us brand new illustrated interview, that was cool. Artists never rest don't they ? And Andreas know what I'm talking about. This Swiss student half-artist half-genius, knows all about passionate work :

 

 

-First of all, present yourself (name, surname, nickname and why did you choose this nickname)
-My real name is Andreas (Andy) Halter. My nickname's elvish for three, one and two were already chosen. 

-How old are you ?
-23 years old

-Where do you live ?
-I live in Lucerne, in the heart of Switzerland.

-How would you define Switzerland?
-Hm…Switzerland's a tiny country that prides itself to be different than others, but really isn't that much different. The nature's beautiful and the people are reserved, but nice. And of course there's the chocolate, cheese, mountains, lakes and banks. 

-Plus, you have a Freddie Mercury statue in Montreux, what's cooler than that? What's your job, or are you still in school?
-I'm studying game design in Zurich and I work at a cinema theater on weekends.

-Do you get free tickets?
-Yes, that's the cool part. And I can take one person with me for free. 

-We'll publish your email adress at this end of this interview, for those who are interested. What is like to study game design?
-Haha, actually, my studies start in September, so I don't know yet, but from what I've heard and seen, it's great. 

-Oooh I see ! What are your projects ?
-Well, my biggest project at the moment is called New Paper Mario. It's a texture pack for the Paper Mario game for the N64. Basically, I'm replacing every texture in the game, thus giving it a new look. It's a huge project and will probably keep me busy for several years. Another project I'm working on is a "Legend of Zelda" themed set of Poker cards. I already published one suite on deviantART and thanks to the great comments I've got I'm designing the rest of the set, so that it will be playable some day.

-I was going to ask you what inspires you, I can already name Nintendo.. what else?
-Hm, books, for example, I like to read, especially during train rides. And movies, of course, which goes well with my part time job.

 

-Last question before I let you go eat chocolate riding a cow while going to your bank, why did you choose this FML story ?
-One reason is that when you asked me to a story, you said that you liked my New Paper Mario style, so I chose something to go with the Nintendo theme. Another reason is that I also own Wii Fit, but luckily I'm light enough to use it. 

-Tell the world the truth, how old are you, wii-fit nintendo speaking ?
-Haha, Wii Fit claims that my body is about 4 years too old. But that's much better now than when I started and my body age was around 30.

-We're proud of you, keep up the good work. Anyway, thank you very much for your contribution !

  • It's Friday, so a bold font is required. I was sitting in my caravan by the side of busy road cooking cocktail sausages over a gas stove when I realised it was time to start writing something about this…
