On January 24, 2012, he was nominated for an Academy Award for the animated short film Dimanche, which was inspired by his experiences growing up in Desbiens, Quebec. Still learning how to use computer animation tools, he worked with pen and pencil to create Dimanche, hand drawing the entire film. While 10-minute film took him two years to complete, working in this manner, Doyon believes such traditional animation techniques are better for portraying emotion.Dimanche is his first professional film.
In addition to his film work, Doyon is a book and magazine illustrator who has received the 2008 Applied Arts Magazine Illustration Award and a LUX award in 2009 for his editorial illustrations. He has a degree in graphic design from the Université du Québec à Montréal.
