j’adore //la flore et la faune//

6 July 2009

From La Flore & La Faune!!

But no, darling, it is La Flore et La Faune who is truly talented; not I. I cannot possibly express my joy upon receiving an email and the above illustration from the artist; Only once have I ever had anything made for me, and that was a fabulous collage by the young graphic designer Jaime R. whom I absolutely admire. But this? It is impossible for me to contain how excited I was (and still am, of course) in having such beautiful an illustration dedicated to this humble bloggerette (so I call myself). Absolutely floored, flattered, and so honored to receive. Many, many thanks! (Perhaps this is of Coquette, my Parisian alter ego? (; )

Do visit La Flore et La Faune for gorgeous illustrations, many of which are accompanied by humorous little descriptions. Truly a lovely blog for a few needed laughs to start the day, by an up-and-coming artist! My favorites? The first, entitled Sex Kitchen

Sex Kitchen

{Translation: You’ve been naughty, eggwhites! You deserve to be whipped!}

And the second: Fashion & Ethics.

My way of fighting against "Made in China" is to knit my clothes with tibetan monks' hairs.

I’ve always loved humor in art.


(I must apologize beforehand, for my French is quite tragic and borderline horrific.)

Chère La Flore et La Faune,

Mais non, mon chéri, c’est vous qui est vraiment talentueux. Je ne peux pas exprimer ma joie de recevoir votre e-mail et cette illustration. Une seule fois auparavant, j’avais fait quelque chose pour moi, et qui a été par Jaime R.. Je suis très honoré et flatté; il est impossible pour moi de contenir mon excitation et le bonheur! S’il vous plaît excuser mon mauvais français, je suis encore l’apprentissage. Merci beaucoup! 


La C.

    Chère La Couturier, merci pour ton article, je suis heureux que tu apprécies mes illustrations, en particulier ces deux-là. J’ai eu l’idée de la première (sex kitchen) en faisant une mousse au chocolat…
    Merci aussi d’avoir participé au concours summer love.
    Belle journée à toi
    Bises from Paris to you and all your readers.
