You may have seen some of his illustrations on the covers of GQ or the New York Times, on book covers or movie festival posters because the style and beauty of Sébastien Plassard’s illustrations has made him famous internationally and you will surely fall in love with it too.
His works are recognizable among thousands, thanks to a unique style that combines the modern and elements that recall the old advertising of the 50s. What it represents is what surrounds us every day between sunsets and means of transport, between cars and airplanes but always with that I do not know what makes the result almost surreal.
Sébastien plays with lines and colors, creating light spots with tones like orange and red, and creating shadows with tones that change from blue to gray. Even the technique he uses combines new and old. The French illustrator always begins his work on paper and then goes to the computer to work mainly on textures. The result is a dreamlike and surreal world made up of retro-style colors and shadows.
