Alex Alice

Graphic Novel Writer and Artist

Alex Alice is a French graphic novel writer and artist, working in France and sometimes the U.S. Born in 1974, he grew up in the south of France and had the chance to travel around Europe, where he developed a life-long passion for the ruins and castles of the medieval and romantic ages. This infused his art, from the grim medieval setting of esoteric thriller The Third Testament (1997-2003) to the primeval, mythic world of Siegfried (2007-2011), an operatic re-telling of the northern saga of the great dragon-slayer.

His interests range from cinema and animation to painting and illustration (he received three Spectrum Fantastic Art awards). His Siegfried has also been produced as an illustrated concert, set to Wagner's music performed by the Orchestre National de Lyon. In Castle in the Stars, he draws on Jules Verne and nineteenth century romanticism to create a watercolor world of adventure and wonder, to enchant adults and young readers alike. Starting in Angoulême in 2017, immersive Castle in the Stars exhibitions showcase original art along with costumes, props and models. His original art has been shown at the Society of Illustrators in New York, the Neue Pinakothek in Munich, the BRAFA in Brussels and Drawing Now in Paris. He is currently represented by Galerie Daniel Maghen.

His works have been translated in 19 languages.

James Paick is a concept artist & creative director hailing from Los Angeles, California, with a rich background in the arts dating back to his childhood. He honed his skills at the prestigious ArtCenter College of Design, specializing in illustration and digital painting. His career journey has taken him through various sectors, including entertainment advertising & marketing, and ultimately the video game industry, where he thrived as a concept artist. Establishing his own studio, Scribble Pad Studios, James has contributed his talent to an array of projects spanning films, video games, animation, theme parks, commercials, book covers, and more, amassing over 15 years of industry experience.

James is also a co-founder of Brainstorm School, an online learning platform dedicated to concept art and illustration. His passion for sharing knowledge and fostering a vibrant artistic community shines through his involvement with events like the IAMAG, where he eagerly contributes to the industry he loves.
