‘The best outfit to wear your jellies is the one when you feel like you’re on holiday.’
Whether she’s illustrating away or musing around town – you’ll always see the cool cat, Camille bopping around in her candy pink Méduse. We caught up with this bright artist who shares the secrets behind her talent! Make way!
M – We really like your illustrations and we notice you have an array of styles within your drawings. How would you describe your style?
C – Firstly, thank you for your interest in my illustrations! Indeed, I use different styles in my drawings. Usually, I make cartoon-style illustrations, with simple expressions and vivid colours – it’s a style which is spontaneous and fun! But I also like to create illustrations which are more realistic and perfectionist. It all depends on the subject. Sometimes, it’s important to come back to something more classical to improve the techniques, the perspectives and the proportions. Having different styles helps to keep an objective perception of my own style. I also like to adapt the illustrations depending on what they represent.
M – Do you have particular source of inspiration? Do some things inspire you more than others?
C – I mainly get inspiration from my daily life, my experiences and my moods. For a long time, I was writing a blog where I would try to bond my illustrations with some funny experiences which were happening to me, even though it was not always very exciting! Now, I start with short stories I get from writers. Or I draw what I observe and what strikes me.
M – We spotted a sneaky snippet of our Méduse in one of your photos on Facebook! What is your perfect outfit to wear with your Méduses?
C – Yes, I have a pair of SUN Bonbon sandals. I love to wear them all the time: at the beach, in the city, on my balcony, when shopping… The perfect outfit to wear with my jellies is the one that makes me feel like I’m on holiday. I often wear rough blue denim jeans, which are rolled up above the ankles – as if I was going fishing!
M – Here is a challenge for you! Could you create an illustration with a pair of Méduse? It can be anything you want, let your imagination run free!
C – Challenge accepted!
M – Finally, let’s take a step back to childhood. Could you tell us one of your memories with with Méduse?
C – The Méduses saved me from weevers in the water, many times when when I was a child. Luckily, my Méduses avoided me from getting bitten so I could fully enjoy swimming. Not only are they pretty shoes but they also insure your safety! Méduse is also necessary for pebble beaches !!
Yep! She said it. Wear Méduse and you’ll be THE ultimate summer girl. High five to Camille for joining us here, we’re super happy to have her featured on our blog! Find all her illustrations on her portfolio and her Facebook page!
