Voutch



Another recent discovery is the art books of French cartoonist Voutch. His style looks like Gary Larson painted by Kiraz. Thanks to my belle Raja for the scans.

I actually came across his work a couple of years ago, I think it was the Doodlers who told me about him. I looked at a bit more of his work online this morning, great compositions and wonderful colour sensibilities! You can't go wrong with a farside painted by kiraz look! I only wish I could read the captions too.

Let's make it quickly in flash and sell the shit out of it.

I think in the bottom one she's saying 'Are these two finished my dear? I need to but some bread & salad!'

Yes! We have several Voutch books. Found them in a bookstore in France several years ago. Spectacular colour on the autumn image!

We submitted first caption to the 'Babelfish' translator on the internet and got the following:

"I thus have begin an enormous work on myself and today, almost 15 years after, I can infin say that results its it: I deteste more; I mepris."

Not being familiar with the word 'mepris' The meaning is still not clear. Oh, to have payed more attention during those high school french lessons!
