The Illustration and Claymation world of Christophe Lopez-Huici

Jennifer Vaughn Artist Agency welcomes French-born, New York resident, Christophe Lopez-Huici to the group! With clients such as Google, Christie's, Pfizer, Atlantic Records, Bill Plympton, as well as a large range of smaller music labels and independent music magazines, Christophe brings yet another layer of style, skills, and personality to the team.

His illustration approach has a hint of the very traditional French 'bande dessinées' (cartoon), while retaining a clear unique personality and presence:

Some of his animation / claymation projects include a 7 minute-long animated sequence for the documentary Mamachas Del Ring. The movie has been screened in many festivals worldwide, including Slamdance and the Margaret Mead film festival in NY. His own animated short, Mondo Claymo has been in festivals all over the country and was shown at the Festival de Cannes's Short Film Corner in May 2011 --- here is a peek:
