Last stretch for 2013

At the Christmas table, will you chose capon or goose? Shane has been turning this question around as he illustrated a farmyard poultry for the cookbook "Coq Rico". Jérôme Mireault, on his part, has been dressing up the windows of select shops of Rockland Shopping Mall and David Despau illustrates a yaks at a 3200 meters altitude ! And, like every month, check out below the latest realizations of the clinic.

Take note that Colagene stay open during the holidays. Until then, enjoy the month of December and join us on Facebook.

- The illustrators and agents of the clinic

David Despau / Magazine Long Cours / Paris

David Despau illustrated the article Dechen Yeshi, la jeune fille aux yaks. Living at a 3,200 m altitude in Tibet, she founded the company Norlha, which sells yak wool (the khullu, equivalent to cashmere) and creates throws and scarves that are sold in luxury boutiques.

Anne Cresci / Marie-Claire China Magazine / Beijing

In China, the holidays season is also approaching. Anne Cresci illustrated a selection of limited edition products gifts with a red theme festive setting.

Takeshi / Personal research / New York

Personal researches by Takeshi. For the Nike illustration, I used some new collage techniques that arose from my experimental work to create a dynamic ornamentation around one of their products. For the castle, it is simply the result of an exploration of colors and illustration technique based on the use of solid colors and basic shapes. A kind of personal challenge when you know my usual almost systematic use of realistic photo-montages.
