Arthur de Pins
Arthur de Pins is a French illustrator and comic books author.
After graduating from the Arts-Déco in animation, he started his career by drawing cartoons and made three short films including Geraldine and The Crab Revolution, which won awards in over fifty festivals. In the meantime, De Pins had also been creating animations for commercials in Europe and illustrations for European magazines such as Max-Magazine and Wombat. He also participated in Drew Carey's Green Screen Show, an improvisational comedy television series.
He started working more and more towards comics strips engineered through Illustrator, a technique he was initiated to by MrZ. De Pins' illustration style has a strong graphic simplicity combined with a polished rendering that is achieved with artfully controlled areas of color. His illustrations are wild, sexy, funny, unabashed, perfectly drawn and beautifully colored.
In 2006, the first opus of his erotico-humoristic Péchés Mignons’ series was published by Fluide Glacial. The success of this first work led to the creation of other episodes.
When the publisher of Spirou commissioned him to create a cover for the magazine’s Halloween issue, he switched from sexy characters to monsters. This led him to publish the first opus of his graphic novel Zombillenium in 2010, a work that rapidly became a success both in France and the United States.
His collaboration with French funk-rock band Skip the Use for the music video of “Nameless World” follows in the same vein and features Zombillenium’s setting and characters.
Arthur de Pins has been working, for over a year now, as director and screenwriter on the feature film adaptation of Zombillenium.
