His stuff is really really really hard to find outside of France and Belgium. And aside from his Samurai epic Kogaratsu I don't know if anything he's done has ever seen print in the U.S. but I find his work intoxicating.

 

He is a minimalist but in a few strokes of flawless line he's able to communicate depth and weight with a kind of genius that few artists possess.

TB,

 

I tried to find two specific pieces that really inspired me in my most formative years as an artist (at the same time as I was discovering some guy who was illustrating Shadowrun and Vampire RPGs). Unfortunately I haven't found those two. I say unfortunately because they really display his mastery of form via simple linework. So I've posted up on the CA.org forums in hopes someone has scans somewhere. That being said. In the interim I offer you these two that I found via bing...

I'm hosting them on my personal server for now. If the bandwidth gets too massive I'll have to find a more suitable imagehost.

Thanks for the tip. I'll move these over to photobucket later today.

 

Good News Everyone!!! I found One of the two I was looking for (thanks to the boys and girls over at CA... ).

 

This is "Les Sentinelles"... One of two posters by Michetz that hung on my wall from the age of 16. It was tragically destroyed by my ex-wife's dog years later. Long story. Don't ask.
