Illustrator of the month : Simon Landrein
Do you remember the first illustration you’ve ever made? What was it? Would you mind sharing it with us ?
Sure, I remember drawing motorbikes when I was about 4, neither my parents nor I can remember why I had such an obsession about that.
Does music inspire your work?
It certainely does, but I really listen to a lot of styles. I really jump from one genre to another, or listen to the same tune on repeat all day long, but my graphic style remains the same.
Let’s say that music puts me in the mood for drawing, more than it influences my art itself.
If your art was a song, what would it be? Why?
It would probably be a strange and gloomy remix of a pop song, like this one:
samuelspaniel - Ironic
If you could shoot/draw one artist for its album cover, who would it be? Why?
The Cosmic Psychos, just to get the chance of having a drink or two with them.
Is there a song on Kitsuné Musique you think would have been great for you to depict?
I’ve checked and there are a lot of choices! I’ve seen a song from DJ Assault, I guess this could have been really fun to depict.
Now that you have linked your pictures (illustrations) with music, what other art would you like to explore?
I guess it would be cinema or comics: I would really like to dig deeper in productions that allow a longer narration and think about an expanded story telling.
