Frédéric Pillot, the jewel in the crown of children's illustration, is no longer in the limelight. He has had one success after another with works such as Balbuzar, which won the prize for best children's album at the Imaginales 2021. Three of his fabulous frescoes are the subject of an exhibition at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille until September 2022. As a rare privilege, the weekly magazine Spirou called on him to illustrate the cover of a special issue to celebrate Valentine's Day. It didn't take much for this color lover with a subtle sense of humor to reinterpret the famous scene of the bouquet of flowers from the Nest of the Marsupilamis. Through a composition in "s" all in roundness and curves, the artist offers us a charming meeting between two elephants under the tender eye of the Marsupilami. A delight for young and old children.
