Even today, Jérôme knows how to give a unique style to his work and he is a still our little genius of the image by his fickle and trendy style. Good meeting with our dear, faithful and creative Jérôme!
 

Question 1 / Describe your creative lab in a few words?
A simple desk in my apartment; I am lucky to have huge windows, then a lot of light. It is essential.

Question 2 / In two sentences, how would you describe your work technique?
Rather direct. I was used to sketch on paper before; but now, I draw directly in the computer on the tablet, which saves time and specially piles and piles of paper!
 

Question 3 / What is the project of which you are most proud of?
Recently, I had a little crush for illustrating the label for the vermouth of cider Rouge-Gorge, in association with Polygraph.
 

Question 4 / What are your favourite colors to create?
I would say that my palette changes a few weeks. With the imminent arrival of the spring, I like to draw with colors a little more pastel, but vibrating also. Lots of pink, green.


Question 5 / Why did you become an artist?
Like many illustrators, the passion of drawing has been developed during the childhood, and I always knew and wanted to venture out on this universe.

Question 6 / In four words, how would you describe your style of illustration?
Modern, Casual, Adaptable, Vibrant.

Question 7 / What is the project of your dreams?
I am a big fan of board games, then, that would be something which inspires and joins me a lot. But I would not tell no to illustrate a label of beer of microbrewery. (I drop that here, like that…).

Question 8 / What does a typical day in the life of Jérôme Mireault?
I get up around 7am and prepare coffee, while checking around the projects to make me a list of things to do. So then I begin to do some sketches with some music, and if the temperature is nice, I can take a short joyride or a bike ride. I am keen of naps in the afternoon, that also allows me to work late in the evening (I often have my peak of creation at the end of evening).

Question 9 / What inspires you?
People; in particular people around me. I have the chance to be surrounded with height of extraordinarily creative human beings, and that it’s an infinite source of inspiration.

Question 10 / What is your favourite blog or website?
