Alongside their delicate eroticism, Guille’s illustrations even have a forward-thinking factor to them and his objective has at all times been to “create characters and pictures that haven’t any resemblance to actuality”. Together with his characters having a sure alien, otherworldly really feel, Guille explains that “my characters are typically a projection of my thought of what future people could seem like”. Creating sturdy, seemingly bodily enhanced characters that morph into completely different species, Guille can be eager for his characters to have “no particular gender”, proving the potential for a way more gender-fluid society.
This gender-fluidity is one thing that additionally influenced Guille’s cowl for the upcoming version of Buffalo Zine. His first cowl, and a bit of labor he’s notably happy with, Guille was given complete freedom to create what he envisioned. Working across the zine’s theme of “pink”, the duvet exhibits a lounging hot-pink determine, clad in nothing however pants, shiny elbow-length gloves and a Prada bag. Accompanied by a fluffy cat, a mattress of roses and luminescent love-hearts, the piece screams Y2K candy-kitsch. However, Guille explains, he targeted on purposefully depicting “a distinct physique kind, not normative in gender phrases, a department of his earlier themes, this time with a softer focus”. Not solely does the duvet match the temporary completely, Guille additionally sees it as one demonstrating a transparent indication of an enchancment in his technical abilities since he first began his follow.
At present practising airbrushing and having fun with the method of exploring and discovering new instruments, Guille can be eager to start out producing, “a extra tangible kind of artwork”, and so has his sights set on entering into 3D animation. And definitely, with Guille’s characters already so realised, it actually looks as if a pure development to get them shifting.
