La Danse des notes, original illustration made for the poster of the Lyon BD festival in 2017. Signed.
India ink and white gouache on paper
35 × 50 cm (13.78 × 19.69 in.)
On this occasion, Roger has essentially used crosshatching to give a strong sense of rhythm and an original visual dynamic to this illustration. Jazz playing his trumpet, focused, while the musical notes symbolically lend music to this drawing. All the lines converge towards the centre, towards the trumpet, the origin of the music, as if the author had wanted our eyes to focus on the deep space where the notes come from. These different techniques bring a certain poetic halo to the illustration.
"When creating the poster for the Lyon Comic Festival, Roger wanted to avoid the typical structure of drawing characters next to a recognizable monument of the city, and instead focused on extracting all the expressive power of Maynard playing his instrument. " Raule
