Saintange

This illustration has its roots in the meeting of Yslaire and the singer-composer Vincent Venet. “I’m a great fan of this cult BD series… Transported by his universe and by Julie, the heroine, I threw myself in all innocence into the musical adaptation of the series. The text and the music were written together, and in the space of four hours… They were inspired by the first four episodes and they leave an opening for the fifth, which is called “Maudit soit le fruit de ses entrailles.” Resourcefulness, audacity and curiosity (to have the opinion of his humble and mighty author) are what permitted me to meet him…The original illustration of Julie, principal heroine of “Sambre” was created by Yslaire for the “70 cl” album cover, and was also used for the cover of the special-edition single (in a limited edition) of “Saintange.”
