Face This: Marguerite, please tell us who you are and what you do.
Hello, nice to meet you, I’m Marguerite Sauvage. I’m a French illustrator based in Montréal. I’ve started to work as a freelance illustrator in 2001 and I’ve drawn for various clients and projects through the years, press, publishing, advertising, exhibition, game design, etc. I also draw occasionally as a concept artist for animation or work as a freelance art director. First of all I’m passionated by art, image, graphic design and illustration. I draw from my very childhood and spent night and day drawing in my teenage while studying science then law and journalism.
Face This: Can you tell us something about the process of your artwork?
As a first step I use my hand and my brain. A 3mm 2b pencil. Paper. Then I scan my drawings and send it to my computer. I draw sometime directly on my 21UX Wacom Cintiq. The softwares I use are Manga Studio and Photoshop. And a printer.
Face This: How is working with kids’ drawings different from working with artwork from ‘other’ clients?
It’s totally different. It reminds me how I enjoyed drawing when I was a kid and how kid’s drawings can be expressive. So refreshing.
Face This: Why did you decide to work with us and what did you think of creating artwork with drawings from Indonesian kids?
It’s really simple, I think Face This is a good idea as much as the kind of initiative you would like to see more often: human and generous. Drawing from the kids drawings was kind of a challenge, which is good, it makes you grow up!
Face This: What did you like to draw/paint the most when you were a kid yourself?
Comic books and cartoon characters. Mostly figures.
