Artist 46: Veronique Meignaud

Meingaud is a French born illustrator, who currently resides in Paris. After 2 years of study at the Emile Cohl Art School she worked for 5 years in the video game industry as a concept artist. She is now working for several publishers, including Wizards of the Coast, and is slowly working her way into the fashion industry. She recently publish Kerogen, an illustration book containing her work. She also goes by the alias of Marmotte

Her style is reminiscent to the Art Nouveau style, which originated in France. She uses bright colors and soft, almost impressionistic lines in her paintings.

You might want to take a second look at this one. Notice how she's not a centaur, but actually has legs and is sitting on the horse torso. The is the kind of strangeness I love! Some of her other work is a bit more aggressive and detailed, like this;

Eau de Plomb

These last two works give me some awesome ideas for wearable artwork that has a heavier fantasy influence. I might even make a exoskeleton that's both aggressive and serene at the same time.
