When it comes to Jb Liautard and Thomas Genon, there’s no art without some science, and no madness without some method.

Their patience, perseverance, and very particular attention to detail produces something magical. Jb builds the idea, and Thomas buys into it. When their vision and skill collide, that snapshot in time is perfection.
