Angelo Seminara

Angelo Seminara is an Italian-born illustrator and graphic designer now living and working in Paris. Here's what he has to say about Serge "it's really hard to describe how much his music has influenced my work and life (well in a very complicated way he's responsible for my expatriation to Paris), so it's great to find others illustrators who love him". That's the power of Gainsbourg! Angelo is influenced by futurist painters such as Balla, Boccioni and de Lempicka. A selection of his illustrations can be found HERE.

Peskimo (AKA David and Jodie) are Bristol-based illustrators and character designers (in fact their excellent Monster Burp toy is produced by the same toy company, Crazy Label, as my very own Inspector Cumulus. Sorry for that bit of blatant self-promotion). They've produced toys, animation and clothing for clients as varied as Kid Robot, Sony and Vodaphone. Do yourself a favour and visit their website and Flicker stream.

Brazil must be full of Gainsbourg fans - just look at THIS!

Here's two great sketchbook pages from Pittsburgh-based cartoonist/illustrator Wayno. I'm sure Wayno needs no introduction, but just in case, here's his website and blog. Wayno's currently got a great exhibition called "File Under: Pop" on at the Zombo Gallery, Pittsburgh. The exhibition catalog also doubles as a colouring book. How cool is that?

Julie Ly

Here's Serge from Julie Ly. Julie is a senior illustration student at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She was introduced to the music of Gainsbourg by her sister when she was in high school. You can see more of Julie's work on her website. I particularly like her Cramps illustration. You really don't see enough portraits of Lux and Ivy!
