    Theo Guignard: Personal Work

Illustration: Goebelins animator Theo Guignard's impressive personal portfolio

Posted by James Cartwright,

Since we featured his collaborative graduate film Eclipse in 2012, ex-Goebelins student Theo Guignard has busied himself working for French animated film giants Xilam. He now spends his days designing backgrounds for Je Suis Bien Content, experts in animation for television. Thankfully, for those of us that love his personal work, he’s still creating imagery for himself – hunched over a desk late at night we’d imagine. His inky sketches have a retro-futuristic feel to them, featuring strange characters composed from loose geometric shapes and rendered in ink-washes that lend them an antiquated feel. They might not move around on cue, but they’re pretty spectacular to look at all the same.
