Yvan Duque’s Fantastical and Illustrative Tales

yvan duque

The vin­tage-inspired illus­tra­tions by Yvan Duque tell fan­tas­ti­cal tales of strange, larg­er-than-life crea­tures. We see giant squids, ghost-like fig­ures, and even a foxy lady occu­py these rich­ly-col­ored com­po­si­tions. They trav­el through dark forests, fiery lands, and hous­es off seclud­ed coasts.

The lus­cious reds, blues, and greens remind me of illus­tra­tors like Mary Blair (per­son­al favorite!) and Mar­tin + Alice Provensen. Duque has nice use of dry brush paired with fine, paint­ed details.
