About

Pirates and fairies, cowboys and queens, that’s the kind of creatures you will meet in my creative world

Here are wandering magical, whimsical and yet fierce and badass creatures. Handsome devils, tattooed characters, sweet elves and magnificents queens are coming alive in ethereal places like forests, galaxies, mysterious vegetations and lights, ponds, moutains …

I love things to be magical, and what I aim to do is extract the essence of the persons I draw to sparkle it over my illustrations

Lux is a French artist living in the south of Paris. She is passionate about art and takes her geeky inspiration from movies, series, theater, and video games.

Lux creates colorful mixed media illustrations, portraits and fanart from the universes that make her dream. Her passion is to make the characters she loves live beyond what she sees on the screens or on stage to extend the magic a little more. She likes to bring them into other worlds, to transform them, to make them travel. That’s why her creations can be rather realistic or more surreal according to the inspiration and the project of the moment.

Art Materials

I love playing with many kinds of techniques, for color illustrations, I use mostly alcohol markers, colored pencils, micron and posca pens, and I can add any art supply that could serve the creation (such as acrylic paint or gold leaves for exemple). For the support, I love to use nice papers like the beautiful Canson tinted sheets, or the mixed media very thick paper, or any other sort of support that would serve each creation.

For black and white drawings I use graphite, charcoal and white pastel, as well as black and white color pencils.
