French illustrator Cécile Dormeau immediately encapsulates the pitfalls and joys in everyday life with her most recent work. We last showed her vibrant illustrations in summer 2015, and since then she’s created dozens more well-observed and witty vignettes.
Whether its a gif or static image, Cécile uses subtle expressions, nuanced gestures and small details to make her characters instantly relatable. Drawing inspiration from familiar female experiences, some highlights include a girl getting rid of some unruly leg hair, a paint roller full of make up and the temperamental nature of periods. Paired with poppy colours, Cécile’s illustrations are energetic, original and considered.
