Interview: Jason Blum

My mother loved Edgar Allan Poe; she exposed me to him at, possibly, too young of an age. Our favorite holiday was Halloween; I say “our” because she and I used to start my Halloween costume in August, so since I was a kid, I liked scary stuff. Hitchcock is my favorite genre movie director; in college, I took a class on just Hitchcock movies, so every week we saw two movies and talked about them. The movie that scared me the most was Friday the 13th, which I saw alone at home when HBO first started out; I was at my cousin’s house in Los Angeles, and it frightened me too much. Like playing with fire; you want to put your hand in the fire even though it hurts.

Artist Showcase: Bruno Wagner

Born in Strasbourg in 1979, Bruno Wagner graduated in applied arts. Caught up by the new technologies and the internet craze, he turned toward multimedia. He became an experienced web designer and Flash animator and fulfills his position as an art director in an agency. But illustration remained his first calling. Very young, he was fascinated by artists like Boris Vallejo, Wojciech Siudmak, H.R. Giger and Brom, and his work continues to be inspired by his first loves. Strongly attached to traditional techniques, he works with oil or acrylic on canvas and sometimes revisits them in front of his screen. He also creates entirely digital pieces. Now he is resuming his work as an illustrator with a lot of fervor for book covers, publications, et cetera.
