Incredible biro drawings by French artist Kevin Lucbert

Everybody doodles sometimes, and the chances are that you do it with a Bic biro. Of course you do! After all, it IS the AK-47 of pens: it’s cheap, it never jams and it will keep on writing when the enemies’ pens have all run out of ink. Kevin Lucbert, however, uses the Bic biro to take doodling to a sublime new level.

The French illustrator creates drawings for the French Press, however for his own practice he lets loose his imagination in monochrome, creating physical impossibilities, dreamscapes and portals to other realities using the most humble of implements. Not only does he use the simple biro, but he predominantly uses its blue variant! The colour of exam papers, medical forms and loan applications, Lucbert seizes the ‘Bic blue’ back from tedium and uses it to bring his fantastical imaginings to life.

My new book “La traversée” is out! A captain travels upstream of a river, venturing into a dark jungle. While sailing deeper into the forest, he encounters strange however dangerous beings and creatures, ancient traces and myths. Inspired by Joseph Conrad’s book “Heart of darkness”, “La traversée” is a surrealistic and dark journey beetween worlds, on the edge of dream and reality. This book is printed by belgian editor “La 5ème Couche”. 29,7 x 22cm, 140 pages. La traversée can be purchased online here : https://www.amazon.fr/travers%C3%A9e-Kevin-Lucbert/dp/239008026X?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0


La Traversée est une création personnelle inspirée en partie par le livre “Au Coeur des ténèbres” de Joseph Conrad. Je n’ai gardé du livre que le motif principal, la dérive solitaire d’un capitaine de bateau remontant le cours d’un fleuve à travers une jungle de plus en plus sauvage et ténébreuse. Au fur et à mesure de son exploration, le capitaine est confronté à diverses manifestations des ténèbres qu’il doit combattre. À la manière du capitaine, je me suis laissé dériver dans un premier temps au fil des dessins sans savoir exactement où cela le conduirait et quelle forme finale allait prendre l’histoire. Dans un deuxième temps, j'ai mis en forme et réorganisé ces dessins puis précisé l’aspect narratif de l’ensemble. Un voyage solitaire axé sur le chemin lui-même et non sur sa destination, une rêverie qui s’égare parfois à la lisière de la réalité suivant une ligne d’ombre tracée à l’encre noire.
