Mitch Blunt

What a week! Another excellent Serge - this time from Mitch Blunt. Mitch is an illustrator based in Hastings and only graduated last year from Kingston University. Have a look at his blog and website for some great illustrations and caricatures. I can't decide which one is my favourite - it's a tough call between Snake Plissken, Terry Richardson and Poison Ivy of the Cramps. Enjoy!

Nathalie Roland

Nathalie Roland is a San Francisco-based radio DJ, printmaker and cookie baker. She's been printmaking since 1992 and has had her work exhibited in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Tokyo. She decided to do this sketch of Serge during a 20 minute break in a library in Los Angeles and I'm glad she did. Here's her website, blog and Flickr.

Sergio Barbo

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.

Quinky, in his own words, is an "Illustrator, animator, stuntman, children's entertainer, astronaut and compulsive liar". He's supplied us with a lovely Serge pic and an accompanying brushstroke animation to go with it. Visit his blog to see what else he gets up to including some remarkable board game customisation!

2010 - Année Gainsbourg!

Thanks everyone for making "Draw Serge" such a successful blog. 2010 is set to be quite a year for Serge fans - January 20th sees the release of Johann Sfar's Serge biopic, "Gainsbourg - Vie Heroique". Understandably, I'm quite excited about this. In the meantime you can assuage your desire for Serge movie news over at the excellent "Gainsbourg: Le Film, Le Blog". I've drawn another Serge to mark the occasion.

Merci, mon ami!
