Vincent is a shipwrecked privateer who has lost his crew to winged monsters. Aya is an orphan seeking revenge on the Starless army who killed her family. Through a series of unlikely coincidences, the warrior cat Chobo unites the two and leads them to Princesses Pira and Lono, who are making their final preparations to leave Spera and do battle with the evil Starless Queen. As the fire spirit Yonder infiltrates the Starless-occupied Plain Castle, the newly formed group is taken by surprise by another swarm of winged monsters. Can Yonder survive his mission, and can the Princesses trust their new friends?

The Fish Lantern - new handprinted linocuts in stock on our Etsy shop!

The 1000 Lights Festival takes place in Niigata’s old district. Children take fish lanterns for a walk, in the old-fashioned shopping street which looks like a river.

Those prints were made using a baren – a traditional Japanese tool – and 5 hand-carved linoleum plates.
Every print is unique, with its own subtle variations.

You can order them on our Etsy shop:

Bye bye mountains!

We have spent almost one year in the French Alps, living in a beautiful chalet, surrounded by sheeps, cows, horses and strange insects. It was a very inspiring place for a productive year. 
Tomorrow, early in the morning, we will leave the mountains in search for a new home.

Last Saturday, we went one last time to the lake of Annecy where we swam and sketched those two beautiful castles.

The Coral Cave Exhibition in Annecy, France

Last days, we have been working a lot to get the first Coral Cave exhibition ready. More than 60 watercolors backgrounds, animation sheets, comic pages, sketches, articles, … will be displayed at Bonlieu Public Library. We aim to give an insight into the creation of our adventure game, from the paper to the screen. It will also be possible to play the demo.

The artworks are currently being framed.
The exhibition will open on April the 15th.

We are working on a Coral Cave minicomic!
The story will take place before the game and will be a good opportunity to follow Mizuka in one of her tiny adventures.
You’ll meet some of the island’s inhabitants, search for cool shells in the Okinawan sea and investigate a strange creature.
