hire me

Hello! My name is Pol Clarissou, would you like to hire me

You might have heard of my games Vignettes and Orchids to Dusk, or some of my other interactives. That beautiful talent could be yours! Hire me!!

I am looking for contract work and/or a longer-term hire starting September 2018. I am willing to relocate as necessary, fluent in English and French.

This page features many twitter/tumblr embeds which might not display as expected if you use filters.
Here are examples of things i can do for you and your projects:


Hire me to do foliage for your open world game

I can both draw 2D plant sprites and create stylized 3D models for vegetation. I always favor stylized art styles but i don't limit myself to any specifically and can explore different directions.

▽ see examples ▽

This is a Skyrim mod replacing all the vegetation sprites with custom made doodly variants.



These are test scenes made in Unity using Doodle Studio 95 and Unity's terrain system for foliage support.


These are foliage screenshots from my game Orchids to Dusk.





Hire me to do art for your visual novel

(or any sprite-based game) (or any kind of illustration work really) (i've done comics in the past! it's true!)

▽ see examples ▽

These are indulgent fanarts of my own game characters—but consider this, if you hire me i'll basically be doing fanart for your game!!


These are illustrations from a series based on tweets by the Strange Voyage twitter bot.


These are pencil drawings.


This is a jolly set of foes and fellows.

I was the primary artist behind mobile game Vignettes and drove the art direction of the game from its inception to the releases. It's my baby!!!




I handled a change in art direction in one of Arcturus's projects (proposed a new lore and style guide, selected external R&D artists and handled back and forth with them, compiled the new art deck). Bottom right concept art by Erwin Kho.

simple 3D art
