Sex and Loving in Marseille

This week I attended the private view of a new exhibition in Marseille devoted to the illustrator-designer-cartoonist Roger Blachon. The show was in the Palais des Arts, formerly the city library and archive and a lovely ornate building designed by Henri-Jacques Espérandieu, the architect of Notre Dame de la Garde. But I digress. I'd never heard of Blachon before but his work - comic, erotic, surreal, life-affirming - was mischievous and delightful (pictured above, Tarzan and the Elephant gives you something of an idea). Think Pieter Bruegel crossed with Robert Crumb. Click here to read more.
