What a body of work! This selection of illustrations by Vincent Maheé, a French illustrator, are great examples of the ‘Ligne Claire’ illustration style, which was pioneered by Hergé in the 1950s. Don’t be worried if you’re unsure what ‘Ligne Claire’ means – it translates as ‘clear line’ – something we can see here in Mahé’s work, but also of course in Hergé’s work on Tintin.
By keeping his colour palette limited, Mahé allows for even more focus in his work – creating vibrant scenes that through their nostalgic illustration style somehow make you long for a forgotten time. Incredible!
