Jean-Baptiste Monge is a concept artist, illustrator, and author based in Montreal, Canada. His first solo book “Carnet de croquis, archives de Féerie Tome I” was published in 2006, wherein he did the illustration, texts and layout. Jean-Baptiste loves drawing anything and everything to do with fantasy and faeries. Most (if not all) of his characters are of the gnomish/elvish/fairy-ish kind who are mostly accompanied by their pets/familiars/beasts of burden. Looking at Monge’s illustrations makes you yearn to step into the world he created, have a few adventures, and in the process, learn a few valuable lessons about magic, life, and the universe.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
