Thief

An illustration I've done a while ago, acrylics on cardboard. A fake advertising promoting a Parisian detective agency. We can't really see on the picture, but I've painted the thief, the background and the "blondeau" letters on separate pieces of carboard and then put them together, like a collage, all the elements are on a different level.

I like this a lot. Reminiscent of Lautrec's posters for the folies bergeres.

Thank you very much Uli!!! really appreciate your comments! French would say "nom d'une pipe que c'est joli", but you can leave a comment in German if you want for our German friends.

Another beauty! I wish I could really see it up close to see the separate pieces.

I love the little birdies below too.

Oh, and the pirate! And the Iceberg illo. And of course...those lovely sketches. All are fantastic. Quite a breadth of style and all of it ROCKS. C'est magnifique! Tout les dessinees! (sp)
