Another excellent Brazilian entry, this time from Sao Paulo-based illustrator, designer and journalist, Sergio Barbo. Sergio has been a fan of Gainsbourg's music since a child and has also had the pleasure of interviewing Jane Birkin. He goes on to explain why Draw Serge has become so popular in Brazil - "This year is The Year of France in Brasil, so we had a big expo about Serge and a tribute show with Jane (her third time in Brasil doing concerts), Jean-Claude Vannier (the arranger of Melody Nelson) and Caetano Veloso. Yes, Brasil loves Serge Gainsbourg - and Jane Birkin knows it." You can see more of Sergio's work on his Flickr stream.
