SYLVAIN VALLÉE Tananarive, Glénat 2021 Original plate n°23. Signed. India ink on paper 36.4 × 49.8 cm (14.33 × 19.61 in.) The first appearance of the ghost of Jo the adventurer: a major sequence of the story and very delicate to manage. Although he does not impress Amédée in any way, I wanted him to be slightly intriguing to the viewer at this point in the story. This is why I placed him in a corner of this dark room, observing his friend, standing like a statue of the Commander among the objects brought back from his many adventures. It is finally Amédée who disappears at the end of the plate, represented by his shadow, leaving Jo in his mausoleum of memories. For this plate, I voluntarily tried to hide Jo's face by the backlight in black mass and the final centered dive, to suggest no emotion in him and prolong his enigmatic side. Sylvain Vallée
