Salut! Hi guys, I'm all new on DeviantArt and I wasn't sure if I should open an account here to show my work, so let me know what you think and if you like my stuff! There are several past and future projects that I'd like to share here, including pics from my short films, games and more.

If you're curious about me, I'm a freelancer working at home in the countryside of France. I try to do almost everything on my own, even if the result is not perfect, because I like that "homemade" feeling. I have written several short novels (and will try to write more), and I use these fantasy or sci-fi stories as a starting point to develop graphical projects. All my books are self-published and still private (because only available in French), but I am trying to translate them into English, to release them later on the shop of The Icehouse collective (see below).

Here's the list of my current books and their graphic adaptations:


Mon Village est Magique (My Magical Village)


is originally a series of short novels for children. I have already written 5 short books and a 6th one should put an end to this series.
I have started a project of cooperative comic book, based on the world of MVEM (Mon Village est Magique).

I am looking for illustrators to get involved in this comic book, where everyone can use his own style and technique to illustrate the story. If you're interested to get involved, please get in touch by email!
www.monvillageestmagique.fr





The Black Cube series / The Forte Chronicles (temporary title)


is a Sci-Fi novel telling the story of the Forte familly from planet Terra. Philippe Forte discovered a Black Cube in space, and disapeared mysteriously. People of Terra remember him as an heroic astronaut who sacrificed his life during a mission. His son Yan is a forest ranger who doesn't want to have anything to do with space. However he will soon discover that he has no other choice but to walk in the steps of his father. Somewhere, a mysterious spaceship called The Ark, created thousands of years ago by the Anterrans, protects an incredible black Tower, amazing database with the knowledge of all the civilizations of the universe...
This book is still being polished when I have the time, and I try to translate it in a good English.

The Black Cube series already gave birth to several projects:
- 2011: A Space Adventure, short film. Vimeo Staff Pick. See below.
- ASA: A Space Adventure, video game. "Myst in Space!" 4/5 on AdventureGamers.com. Point&Click, Puzzle. Available on Steam
- Catyph: The Kunci Experiment, video game. To be released in 2015. More info on Catyph.Fr
- TBT: The Black Tower, video game prototype, J-RPG. Aborted project from 2013. Free playable version on Itch.io





Squib for Dragonflies


is a very short legend telling the life of 2 insects who begin the journey of their life.
I have not yet found the time to develop any project based on this book, except for these two videos:
- A Bug in the Paint, short film. Selection of the Panama Festival of 2012.
- Squib for Dragonflies, video game. I was only testing the Visionaire Studio tool, but the development was aborted.


That's all for the books I have written until now.


Short films


There are probably many other projects that I could share, but it's probably best if you discover on your own.
This is my Vimeo channel: vimeo.com/simonmesnard
A selection of my videos:
- Ecosystem, manga-style short film
- Hunter, ink-style short film
- Catyph, sci-fi short film
- Think I Don't, music video for Karreo.com
- Shanon, music video for Karreo.com


The Icehouse collective


In 2014 I have founded an online collective of indie creators, named The Icehouse. If you like my work, you can follow my news on our Tumblr page, along with news from other creators that I enjoy!

I will try to post pictures from time to time here on Deviant, and I hope you'll let me know what you like and dislike! Thanks!
-Simon

I used to make 3D renders for advertising societies, until I started writing my own stories in 2009. Now I'm just an indie freelancer trying to work on several personal projects of books, games and short films, at home, all the time.
