Life Illustrated - Jean François Martin
I find illustration a very complex art. Drawing in a way that can be compelling and provocative is a task very few know how to accomplish. And from those few, only a handful can transmit emotions and ideas. I found this french Illustrator who has been working for newspapers and editorials and who I find dramatically powerful yet very simple, witty and with humor. He has also collaborated with the design studio 2 Œufs Bacon P'tites Patates, for corporate branding and illustration for book covers. He also conceptualized and art directed a short animated film for Canal+ in France, entitled “L'inventeur” or “The Inventor” which will catch you smiling alone in front of your screen. For your crayon colored eyes: Jean François Martin.
