Stephane Halleux - Jules Verne meets Tim Burton
May 5, 2007 10:00 PM   Subscribe

Stephane Halleux is a French sculpture artist whose work feels like Jules Verne as realized by Tim Burton; the sculptures all share cartoonish steampunk vibe that's really appealing. Sadly, the site is 100% Flash, so no linking to specific favorites, but at the very least the navigation remains fairly straightforward.

Wow. Very Interesting. It may take several large tumblers of strait bourbon to hold back the “WWI Moleman” dreams tonight, but very interesting. Cool post.

Wow, that's some nice stuff. I wish I could get a sense of scale from the pictures.

The leather-covered robot dog is awesome.

Loved those. Delightfully macabre some of them. Reminded me of the Triplets of Belleville. Quite a nice site for viewing his objets d'art. Thanks.

Yes, this stuff is so French! (I love that film by the way, have it on DVD: my 6-year-old likes it too). So, yes, jonson, to your "Jules Verne as realized by Tim Burton" (an apt description), I'd add 'by way of the bandes dessinées'.

Wonderful. Is there any indicator of size, though? I'd love to get an idea of the scale of these.

This is some of the most impressive work of this type I've ever seen. Lovely.
