les sornettes

Ten “Sornettes”, which mean in french very short absurd stories, closed to poem or fable, were first written and then illustrated. Each one talks about the intimate, loneliness and absence with humor and poetry. All the drawings were drawn with Indian ink and black Cristal Bic pen, created a very graphic and homogeneous world. Inspired by Boris Vian’ texts, Jacques Tati’s movies and Carelman’s catalog, the “Sornettes” invent a poetic world where the strange disturbs an apparent tranquility.
