Illustration scenes

Discover some illustration scenes I did for various magazines and books.

Scenes and scenery are challenging for illustrators. You have to draw a lot of details while maintaining style and coherence.
You need to think about the composition, the perspective and the colors of the settings.

LONG COURS

Client: Groupe l’Express Roularta.
I did this illustration for an article about Filipino girls who marry old American veterans.

MENS HEALTH

Client: Ronan Gardiner.
This artwork was published in the German edition of Men’s Health magazine.
The magazine asked me to draw illustration scenes on double spread pages.
You can see a lot of cool details in the drawing.

Crazy ski situation

For this illustration the brief was not easy. The art director asked me to draw a ski station. Many events had to happen in a single scene.
“Someone fall in the snow while a ski is missing in the front of a house. At the same moment a guy reads a newspaper and another one loses a ski , etc.”
It was not easy to do a cool but coherent drawing with so many details. The snow is not an easy element to illustrate. Anyway, it was a nice experience and I enjoyed working for Men’s Health.

The space on the right side of the image was left for the graphic designer to add the text of the article.

European tour

Illustration about problems tourists face when they travel.
Expensive coffees, pickpockets, nasty pigeons, swore feet, closed museums, you name it.
In this illustration you can see a tourist being robbed while someone walk on a dog poop. Another guy stands in front of a closed museum and his friend stays in a dirty motel room. The funny thing with illustration scenes is that you can draw a lot of cool details on a single image.

JUNGLE FEVER

Client: Lezilus.
Lezilus is my representative.
This illustration took me three weeks to finish. There are a lot of details in the image, and my agent published the illustration in a book.

Sometimes people ask me how to draw detailed images.
I start by writing a list of the elements I want to include in the image. I draw every element separately and I use a limited number of colors to keep the coherence.
This illustration was featured in Illustration Now, a book published by Taschen.

BONBEK MAGAZINE

Illustration for a kid’s magazine.
Dress the kids.
Bonbek magazine asked me to draw kids playing in the snow on a double spread pages.
The kids were in underwear and the reader had paste clothes on them. It was a nice and fun illustration.

Snow is not easy to illustrate. You have to draw a white element but don’t want to end up with a blank artwork.
The good news is that people wear flashy colors in ski stations, so you can play with the clothes to give depth to the image.

HARRISON FORD SPIDER

The Hollywood movie star has a spider named after him.
Not sure if this has something to do with Indiana Jones, but Harrison Ford share his name with the scary insect.
Fortunately for him the spider looks nastier.
