#ThortfulDesign

You’ll notice we’ve had a (slightly political) illustrator-themed day today at Thortful HQ, so here’s our #DesignoftheDay to wrap it all up.

Loic Locatelli, a wickedly avant-garde illustrator based in Lyon, France, is a published comic artist. Above, Vaincus Mais Vivants, (which translates literally but less poetically into ‘Defeated But Alive’) is the story of Carmen Castillo, a Chilean writer and filmmaker who was forced to live Chile in 1974 after the Coup D’Etat. Loic’s brilliant storytelling style is illustration for adults-only and tackles strong themes like suicide, violence and feminism. We applaud him for confronting these issues head-first in such an artistic way. You can see excerpts from his illustrated version of Pocahontas here, his other books here, or read more on his personal website.

If you miss us terribly, (understandable), hang out with us on Twitter,  Instagram  and  Facebook
