The Suitcase Lady

Leave it to the French, masters of joie de vivre, to create a burst of joy during these sober, Covid times.

French illustrator and graphic designer, Jean Jullien, is known for his popular drawings of gangly figures. This award winning , thirty-seven year old designer has a style that produces smiles from the young children who delight in his books and from grown ups in need of whimsey. Her are few examples of his witty drawings.

But now there is more. Jean Jullien has gone 3D. He’s been cutting out his charming characters from steel, bending them into interesting poses and painting them. Voila! His line drawings have turned into sculptures.

Four of his massive artworks are now mingling with nature in Le Jardin des Plantes in Nantes, France. Since travel to France is currently off limits to Americans, we have created a mini video of this mirth filled event. Take a Covid break; imagine strolling in these lovely gardens.
