Artist Combines Real-Life Objects With Drawings To Create Funny Illustrations

Romain Joly is an artist who superimposes real-life objects on his drawings to make creative and funny illustrations. He began creating these illustrations in 2020 as he took advantage of the COVID confinement to try new things. In an interview with DeMilked, the artist revealed that he made his first drawings during the lockdown. “I liked it and I still do it today,” he said.

The illustrator mentioned, “To find inspiration, I observe a lot of what surrounds me. I also try to free up time to think, to let my mind wander, by going for a walk for example. Otherwise, I look a lot at what other artists are doing and I write down all my ideas in a notebook so I don’t forget them. Then I have to make the drawing and I make several attempts until I find something that I think is successful. I also try as much as possible to make beautiful pictures.”

Talking more about his inspirations, Romain said, “I enjoy playing with shapes and concepts because it forces me to see the world from a different perspective. Moreover, I had good feedback at the beginning, people were smiling or even laughing when they saw my drawings. This pushed me to continue and to improve.”

“What I also like about this practice is the fact of taking a banal everyday object and making it “cool” with only a few strokes of the pencil. Kind of like MacGyver making amazing things out of nothing! (laughs) There’s an almost magical side to it I think,” he added.

The artist elaborated, “To make a drawing, you first have to find the idea. It is very random. Sometimes the idea comes to me at an unexpected moment (when I brush my teeth for example) and sometimes it’s more complicated, I don’t really know why. I finally understood that I had to deal with it!”
