Manon Courtaux has a special obsessive-compulsive condition: if there’s a writing tool within her reach she simply can’t resist making artwork or writings. This has gotten out of control to an extent where it became rather noticeable. Utropia did what they do best by taking advantage of others’ conditions to add quality to the paper.
How did you end up working for Utropia?
- I had heard about Utopias before, and my Utopia would of course be an anime wonderland with chibi and kawaii characters. Instead I got kidnapped by Lyonel during one of his regular harassements of me, and brought as a sacrifice to culture goddess Barbara Lesz.
Why do you like working for Utropia?
- I get to escape to art exhibitions, which would normally be my natural habitat. I also get to convey my SOS-messages through colorful, convoluted illustrations, and I now know what it’s like to endure working with crazy newspaper staff.
Tell a bit about your background.
- Originally born in Marseille, but grew up on La Réunion Island, which I haven’t reunited with for quite a while now since I’m in Tromseoux. This is my first experience of the mythological Fimbulwinter, which I assume it is by the amount of continuous snowing. I have a background in fine arts and am currently studying mostly modern literature.
What are your hobbies/passions?
- I don’t have that many hobbies and passions… except for reading, writing, drawing, music, arts, drawing, esthetics, films, architecture as part of art, drawing, all kind of possible sciences and knowledges, psychology, drawing. Just those few things. Oh, and drawing. I’m on hostile terms with mathematics and linguistics, though.
Where do you see yourself ending up in 5 years?
- In terms of geography, I’ll be all over the globe, kind of like in quantum entanglement. I will also simultaneously be an artist and a writer.
