"Luna regarde le monde" - François Schuiten

François Schuiten, co-author of “Cités obsures” tells the story behind this image in “un festival en images” published by Champaka. “I was commissioned by “L’Express” to do a cover showing the various worlds of bande dessinée. I created a strange image because I do suggest the idea of worlds, but not necessarily those of bande dessinée. Starting from the principle that the term “bande dessinée” would form part of the title, I absolved myself of the need to illustrate this in a simplistic way. The death of Françoise Giroud links this drawing to a supplement included in the weekly magazine. My only regret is to have portrayed my daughter Luna, who posed for the image, from the rear.”
