Jean-Michel Tixier is a French artist based in Paris.

His illustrations encapsulate the traditional French “ligne claire” style seen in the works of Hergé, Chaland, Serge Clerc, ...

His characters could have stepped fresh off the pages of Tintin comics, right into the present day. “I mix the old retro ‘ligne claire’ style with a modern and adult spirit”.

A self-taught illustrator, his saucy, Gallic work has attracted high fashion clients in the world of publishing and retail, no doubt because Jean-Michel’s illustrations ooze wit, style and a confidence rarely matched.
