The new issue of the magazine Cerise, for which have been illustrator for 2 years, is out in Paris.
Illustrate Paris and Saint Germain des Prés
For the illustration of this new issue, i’ve drawn 2 young parisian girls, walking in Saint Germain des prés, in front of “l’Odéon” ; it’s summer, they arrive from shopping, or maybe they go out for a drink ?
It has almost been two years since the parisian magazine “Cerise” asked me to illustrate its cover.
“Cerise” is a “city magazine” whose roots draw its strength and inspiration from the intellectual and creative effervescence of Saint Germain des Prés in Paris: culture, History, fashion, lifestyle, beauty, it places to be, the coolest places on the left riverside… The editor Carole Fernandez distils a myriad of tips and news things that the Parisians, but also visitors are invited to discover.
An illustrator in Paris
For the launch of the magazine in Paris, Carole was looking for a French freelance illustrator to design the covers. She had discovered my drawings on my blog of illustrations, and after having talked about it numerous times, I quickly put my pencils to work in order to show her my first sketches.
Carole always has a very precise idea of what she wants. The first cover illustrates the Parisian newspaper salesman Ali doing his paper round and known as being a friend of famous people. The launch of a magazine is always a big leap into the unknown ! And it was a success ! It has now been more than two years that I have been illustrating the covers for Cerise, that you can find on my illustrator blog.
Here you’ll find some illustrations i’ve made for this magazine :
Lifestyle and figurative illustration of a luxury hotel
Lifestyle illustration of 2 women falling in love in the “jardins du Luxembourg” in Paris
Illustration of a woman in the city, Christmas time
Illustration of a new love story in a literary café
