Mikael Bourgouin (b. 1982, Lyon) is a French illustrator and painter who graduated from Emile Cohl school.
He is best known for his collaborative work with the comic writer,Thierry Gloris in illustrating the Codex Angelique (2006 series), a mysterious tale of the occult set in the Paris of the Belle Epoque, published by Delcourt.
Using a sumptuous acrylic painting style, Bourgouin draws his influences from American and English authors such as Ashley Wood, Dave McKean, Kent Williams and James Jean.
i love the submissive pose of the worshipping anonymous male entwined within the flowing gown of the dance-like figure of Angelique in this dramatic example of his artwork.
