Fred Jourdain is known for his graphic novels and his original illustrations. He distinguished himself by giving his works remarkable depth, a direct result of his extensive research and his meticulous skills.
His illustrations of the album The Blue Dragon, available both in French and English, were equally praised by critics and public, and earned him two Joe Shusters nominations (the Canadian comic book awards) in the categories ''Outstanding Comic Book Artist'' and ''Outstanding Comic Book Cover Artist'', as well as two Bedelys Awards nominations (''Bedelys Quebec'' and ''Bedelys World''). He also won the Bédéis Causa – Réal Fillion Award, presented by the organization of the Quebec Comic Book Festival to celebrate his outstanding first album. In the past, Jourdain has also produced commissioned works for several clients, such as Audiogram, Le musée de la civilisation de Québec, Roi Ponpon, Dare to Care, Hydro-Québec, Le Capitole de Québec, Ex Machina and Safarir.
While exhibitions of his works are the subject of an ever-growing anticipation, Jourdain keeps evolving his art by addressing new issues and constantly refining his mastery of drawing and composition.
Affranchi specializes in the production of Digigraphies, fine art prints made with authentic pigment inks and printed on premium quality matte paper or canvas. Works are available in limited editions, numbered and signed by the artist. Small, friendly and giant sizes can set the tone to any kind of room.
Digigraphie® is the result of many years of research by Seiko Epson which focuses on the technical performance of its printers and the quality and strength of its UltraChrome™ pigment inks. Digigraphie is a mark of excellence that requires specific criteria and usage rules. This is the guarantee of its value and the condition of its success. The creation of the Digigraphie® label is relatively recent. It was officially launched in November of 2003, at the centennial of the Autumn Exhibition. But its practice is much older. For several years, photographers, sculptors and painters, as well as service providers (photo laboratories and lithographic studios), have been using the technology of Epson printers to produce prints on art paper. This in turn has opened the doors to a new discipline: the digital reproduction of a work of art.
