His graphic style uses a lot light and shade. It also often mixes the same topics which are childhood, dark atmosphere and melancholia. Those topics allowed him to illustrate a lot of books for children such as The Little Witch, Once Upon A Time or Snow White. At first his drawing could seem a bit too dark for books for children, but he always succeeds in finding the right balance.
