Comment

J'ai acheté ce dessin à l'artiste lors d'une extraordinaire rencontre/expo à son domicile en 2013, animée par l'excellent Mickaël Le Galli. Guillaume Sorel s'y était montré particulièrement sympathique et hospitalier. Une joli souvenir d'un joli souvenir ;)

From 1987, he made his first professional illustrations for the magazines Casus Belli and Scales, the fanzine Karpath and for roleplaying games by Oriflam and Descartes. He teamed up with Thomas Mosdi to create the Lovecraftian 'L'Île des Morts, his first comic series of which Vents d'Ouest published five books in the collection Gris Feu between 1991 and 1996.
