Valentin Seiche is a cartoonist and author of the comic book Anguille et Baldaquin, published by Ankama Editions, which is the publishing arm of the French production company Ankama Group that created the massively popularly MMORPG Wakfu. On Valentin’s webpage about Anguille et Baldaquin, the book’s naive heros are described as existing in “a world buffeted by the specter of war.”
In an interview, Seiche discussed his inspiration for his comic book characters. He mentioned Mickey Mouse, Pinocchio, Astroboy and The Little Prince as sources. Many of Valentin’s characters are constructed with simplified, dimensional forms that could fit nicely into the worlds of his inspiration.
