Smoothly morphing his skill and experience, artist Gil Formosa shape-shifts from animation to comics, cartoon to realistic, illustration to art direction.

Gil entered the world of comics in 1974 at the Dargaud studios as the assistant of Morris. In 1977, he created four short stories for Pilote. He also began the heroic fantasy series Légendes du Chevalier Cargal with scripts by Daniel Pecqueur, in 1982. The series ran until 1989, and afterwards he went to work in the advertising and animation fields. He did several commissions for Glénat (two albums of Tex Avery), Marvel (a Conan cover) and Semic (several covers and illustrations). With writer Jean-Marc Lofficier, he began the Robur series (featuring a character created by Jules Verne) at Albin Michel in 2003. He produced painted covers for a variety of French and American science fiction, comic book, and game publishers. Gil has also created several film posters (including one for Richard Donner's Ladyhawke) and was involved in major advertising campaigns.

His new graphic novel series is scheduled for June 2006 release by French publisher Dargaud.

This variation on the elixir of life pairs the flavour of roasted roc with the medicinal potency of the philosopher’s stone. But buyer beware: this dish isn’t for everyone.
mourn and lament while mixing, then cut down a tree
At the end of every tunnel, there was an epithelium of silence that deluged the larynx.
