For the artwork, Wadé’s graphic universe had to match the character’s ADN, i.e. be contemporary, but rooted in History. The artist had to be able to meet this twofold challenge. Thibault Guevel fitted the bill.
Why? Because of his twofold perspective, both classical (art history, symphonic music, literature) and today’s sub-cultures (a mixture of contemporary influences including street art, popular cinema and music, the world of role play and video games … and more generally, the digital world).
