I fucking love Paris

On march 12th the French translation of 'Paris' will be released in France (excited!) and will be titled 'I fucking love Paris' ('Paris' is a much too ordinary title for France). With a new title comes a new cover design. I thought it might be fun to show you the different steps of how that went.

I got an email from the art director of Casterman asking me for a new cover design with a 'trick', a hidden message. Something sexual, please. So I was finally going to do my version of a sleazy sexploitation movie poster (Showgirls! Emmanuelle! The stud!).

First I made some rough sketches (and I'm only showing you the PG ones):















They really liked the one on the left and asked me to refine it:

 
















Switch it and make the breasts more round like a ball, please.
Now. Stars or nipples?
That's the question:














Stars are too American.
Vive la France!
Add lettering et voilà:






















Hope you like it?

Work romances...










































I made some illustrations for a book called 'Van in team naar intiem' by Stefaan Lievens.
It's about office affairs and you can order it here.

Working on another project...




















It's been very quiet here.
It's because I've been working on another project.
Can't say too much about it, but the picture will give you a hint.
More news soon...
