Yves Chaland. French comics artist/writer. Part of a group of artists that created a retro style based on European comics from the 1940s. His works can be found in various publications including the mega-series, Metal Hurlant. Sadly, Yves died in his thirties in the early 1990s.
Beautiful colour and compositional skill evident in this Yves Chaland image. 2 main colours and just a touch of a third for face and hands. Possibly a method of non-realistic colour that I could develop/explore in my extension to Project 3 in this subject. Note also the varied line weight that is Chaland's 'calling card' for his art. Nice use of areas of bold black also. Somewhat similar to Al Hirschfeld in that way and also to Ted Benoit. (viewed 24/4/15 -)
