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.
