With my friend and writer Sarah Fekonja we realized a collection of 17 illustrated poems. I did the drawings in a first time and asked Sarah if she would like to write a poetry next to its. Exited by this challenge and both so happy by the result we decided to create a book. We met for a toast with a delicious cocktail to decide the tittle of the project. That’s how Cocktail was born.
I did the layout on Indesign, the cover on Illustrator and bound with my little hands the first “homemade” copy.
During the Covid-19 quarantine, this project has been published every Saturday in the Instagram account of Alliance Française of Bologna.
Mon abécédaire, 6 ans à Barcelone
During the month of September 2020 I was the Artist in Residence at the French Institute of Barcelona to develop a project for the cultural program with thematic “the words”.
It is through illustrated words that I have chosen to tell about my Barcelona adventures. From A to Z, my doubts, my defeats, my dramas, an unusual time full of twists and turns with also joy and pretty things. I invite you to this poetic and funny retrospective by a path of 26 letters where the chronological order follows the alphabetical one with thin and sensitive drawings.
The work is exhibited in the Art gallery of the “Institut français” of Barcelona during the month of October 2020.
I’m working on the edition of this work as an ABC pictures book. Here some extracts :
À l’air libre
I am the author of a short illustrated book about the Travel without text. I used two different techniques to represent two univers : dream and reality. The main character still in black and white travelling by his colored dream. All the drawings are handmade and available (A4 format on white paper 120g) except the first one, sold during the Bilbolbul comics festival of Bologna. – Please clic on the following pictures to zoom –
