Gildas is one of the first people I met through MySpace and the first time I laid my eyes on his work was pure fascination! And since GWL Graphisme was the first feature in the EyeCandies Art Section, I thought it would be a nice idea to host an interview with my talented friend from France, celebrating our blog’s first year online! Are you ready to be amazed? ;)

Welcome to EyeCandies Gildas! You were the first artist to be featured in the Art Section and I’m very happy to host your interview now – especially as we’re celebrating the blog’s first “birthday”. How did your creative journey begin? When and how did you realize that illustration was the main thing you’d go after?
