Jacques Bouchard Foundation / Montreal

Seven of our illustrators contributed to the 2015 campaign of Jacques Bouchard Foundation (home palliative care) in collaboration with Publicis Montréal. Each artist was assigned with a Quebec figures's portrait. Publicis gave free reins to our artists to illustrate in their own style the wish of each personality about how they would like their last days to be. The clinic was at the fund-raiser evening last Tuesday, September 15 during which the artworks were on sale by auction.

In order of appearance: Kelly Schykulski (Pierre Bruneau), Aaron McConomy (Denys Arcand), Emmanuel Polanco (Pascale Bussières), Adam James Turnbull (Sophie Lorain), Jérôme Mireault (Robert Charlebois), Anne Cresci (Louise Deschâtelets) et Katrinn Pelletier (Alex Bilodeau).

Emmanuel Polanco / L'Obs magazine / Paris

The article illustrated by Emmanuel Polanco raises the question of the immigration of today with regard to the immigration of the last century. Is it the same? France will be up to it in front of this new immigration and also face to the expansion of the extreme right and the FN (Front National). All these questions are put in perspective by the publication of Jean Daniel's book (founder and now editorial writer of Le Nouvel Observateur magazine, become L’Obs) “Mirrors of a life”.
