“I enjoy drawing animals”, says Loustal. His illustrations confirm this. In the comic-strip squares that feature African settings, sinuous lizards adorn the walls. His amazing “dog-pig-hyena” hybrid has become a signature. Now, with “Bestiaire”, a portfolio comprising 7 screen-print plates, Loustal pursues a theme that has long fascinated him. The result is an ode to graphic art and a tender exercise embracing fantasy and wit.
The ” BESTIAIRE” portfolio, published in 1993 by Champaka is now available at www. ftn-books.com
