The Little Match Girl by chillyfranco
The Little Match Girl

What if the little match girl of Hans Christian Andersen was a slave  child from New Orleans in the  beginning of the 19th century?

When I was nine years old my mom bought me a big book full of the most popular tales. There were almost all the Grimm fairy tales in it but the one that stayed carved in my mind was this wonderful story by Hans Christian Andersen. I did not totally understood the ending but the fact that she had hope even though she was cold, hungry and with nobody to help is something that I, somehow, immediately related to me since I come from a modest family. I re-read the tale when I was in high-school and understood every part of it wich made me love this story even more!

 The idea of illustrating it in my own way has been on my mind til then but I was always scared to totally ruined it and thought I was not yet good enough to do it.

But  I love this story so much that I finally decided to start developing visually this idea and if it fails, I’ll just do it again and again until I’m satisfied with the results.

So guys get ready to see alot of this for the weeks (or maybe months) to come!

See ya!

The Butterfly Collection Of Mr. Emmerson by chillyfranco
The Butterfly Collection Of Mr. Emmerson

This is an old idea I had a while ago where we were following Mr. Emmerson and his grandchildends traveling around the globe to find the rarest kind of butterflies. I had tons of really  cool and cute ideas but I lost the notebook containing all of them on a stupid roadtrip…


Anyway now that I have more free time to draw, I thought It’d be cool to make a lil’ illustration in memory of it.

The Hipster Warrior

Sup guys!

This is a weird idea I had last may, it's a gang of hipsters living/stuck in a wow/dofus kinda universe.(used to be a big fan of these two when I was a 13) 

I'm developing the whole universe around this idea and it's pretty dope!

More to come soon!

 I STRONGLY recommend you to follow my tumblr scince it's where I upload everything I do first.
