Jour de fete!

As Matt and Gerben already posted their beautiful Jacques Tati illustration, I thought it was my turn now. As Matt said, we did those as a theme between us before our Eurovision Art Challenge started. I really like "jour de fete", I wanted to do a poster using some of the iconic elements of the story. Voila!

Stef said...

Elliot said...

Lovely!
He seems to be missing a foot, perhaps?

Alina Chau said...

Stef,

Love your new posting. Great design!!

Hustle said...

I like what you post. It's yet modern, but artistic. It looks like 60's technicolor cartoons, the way you did the letters. I would like to put that on a t-shirt (not to sell though, only for me) because I could paint some shoes and make it a killa' outfit.

Get back to me on my blog, ight?

simple and elegant. You have a quite a unique graphic eye and it shows in your work. well done stef!

Nick Sung said...

Hey! That's nice Stef!
I've only seen Playtime, but it's a good one.

Elliott: you're right, on the pink frame. The postman has very long legs and a short pair of trousers, that's why it looks like he's missing a foot, I tried to correct it, but then, it doesn't really work, adding a bit of his right foot makes his leg very short.
Alina: Thank you!
Hustle: Thanks and I'll go on your blog !
Louie: Thank you very much Louie for popping by!
Nick: Thanks! "Jour de fete" is one of the best Tati's movies for me, I really recommend it, "les vacances de Monsieur Hulot" and "Mon Oncle" as well.

Thanks everybody for your comments!

Hi Stef, this is a lovely poster. I'd post mine but I lost it! If it still exists it's in your or Matt's inboxes?
I've only seen PLAYTIME so far & found it to be a masterclass in film composition, staging & art direction. The ultra-stylisation of everything from the architecture to the movement of groups & individuals is very close to animation.

Stef said...

Hey Matt, thank you very much! would be great to see yours again!

Real Nice Stef!

Matthew Cruickshank said...

UM said...

Hi Stef, makes me want to watch those great movies again. Beautiful.

Denis said...

Fantastique! I was gonna comment on the missing foot too, but then I realized I was reading it all wrong. Everything's good.
