#CARVENSEENBY Leopoldine Siaud

For its Advent Calendar, Carven gave carte blanche to 20 artists, each of whom was asked to revisit a key item in the 2018 cruise collection. For the lamb-printed dress, Serge Ruffieux commissioned the illustrator Léopoldine Siaud, famous for her brightly-colored drawings and Gifs, as well as for her sporty and and summery universe. Who are you ?
I am a 25-year-old French illustrator and a co-founder of an illustration magazine called Papier Magazine. I draw with felt pens, using a screentone technique. I particularly like drawing athletes, notably soccer players.
What does this pre-Christmas period mean to you ?
Christmas coincides with my birthday (I was born on the 24th) so that means I get a lot of presents! And I get to choose the Christmas menu too, which is a great privilege. Aside from the D-Day, this is not a period I particularly like. It is cold as hell.
What would be your ultimate artistic dream for the year 2018 ?
I would love to do a solo exhibition, with large-scale drawings on the theme of the Kardashian sisters, and Sébastien Tellier on the piano, playing "Go to the sun" on a loop.
