I love watching film noir or classic movies and I like Science fiction in graphic art. My own projects : a generation spaceship, many retrofuturistic cityscapes and some robots.
Here is an always changing list of stuff I like :
– My favorite filmmakers are David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick, David Cronenberg, John Woo, James Carpenter, Tim Burton, Hayao Miyazaki to name but a few.
– Movies or animated series I like include: Lost highway, Ghost in the shell, Existenz, Aeon Flux (the animated TV series by Peter Chung,
not the film…), Infernal affairs, Naked lunch, Ghost Dog: the Way of the Samurai..
– My top Manga artists or Anime creators are Range Murata,Tetsuo Hara,Hiromu Arakawa, Katsuhiro Otomo, Masamune Shirow,Hiroki
Mafuyu and koji morimoto.
– Golden Age Sci-fi authors I revisited recently : Robert Heinlein, Jack Vance, Isaac Asimov, Philip José Farmer, Frederik Pohl, Cyril Kornbluth, Fredric Brown, Robert Bloch, Albert Teichner.
If I could get any 7 people together (from any period in history) for a cosy picnic, I would invite Lewis Carroll, C.S. Lewis, Scheherazade, H.P.
Lovecraft, Jorge Luis Borges, Jacques Bergier and Stephen King.
I’ve posted some of my graphic works on this blog. Just for relaxation, I am also posting a dark comedy serial called “the steampunk detective” : this is a film noir-grungy retrofuturistic story involving a Raymond Chandler wisecracking detective; certainly not to be taken too seriously.
