ROGER
JAZZ MAYNARD
Dargaud
La Force de la musique, original illustration made in 2020. Signed. India ink, black watercolour and white gouache on paper
57 × 43 cm (22.44 × 16.93 in.)

Jazz Maynard in concert, with a band consisting of a bassist, a drummer, and a pianist. The vibrancy of the music can be fully felt in this illustration. The activity of the musicians is visible: the bassist with her posture and the movement of her fingers; the drummer with the kinetic lines caused by the doubling of his sticks; the pianist, concentrated on his instrument, caresses the keys with agility and a strength that makes his scores fly through the air. Or perhaps it's Roger's technique, which places the "force" of light on the backs of his characters, as if from there emerges a powerful musical wind encompassing all four.

"Everything in this illustration is alive, in motion. It could be another one of those beautiful, virtuosic images of Maynard playing with his band, but Roger gives it a masterful touch with those soaring scores, free as the improvised notes of the best jazz. " Raule
