There is an interesting style conveyed by Paris-based Art Director/Illustrator Emmanuel Polanco. He has worked for several French clients and apparently really likes playing video games. He works by both hand and mouse combining the results of each. He has been working since 2001 and is currently looking for freelance commissions. You can keep up to date with his artistic endeavors at his blog, where there are enough images that you don’t even need to speak French to appreciate it.
