The French poets turned into cartoons, with Jean de La Fontaine and Charles Baudelaire

The French Poets Turned Into Cartoons!

During the music creation, I considered drawing the poets to create another interpretation of the poems, somewhere between French comics and fairy-tale worlds.

As an artist, you can bring your vision to life and express your creativity uniquely. One of how you can do this is by blending different art forms to create something truly original. I have combined music and visual art to create a video featuring famous French poets turned into cartoons.

By transforming these poets into colorful cartoon characters, I have made their work more accessible and appealing to a broader audience. Using the music I made further enhances the emotional impact of the video, adding an extra layer of depth and beauty to the experience.

Drawing and coloring twelve different poets is a challenging feat. The animation style is playful and whimsical, which probably creates a contrast.

By including famous poets such as Victor Hugo, Jean de La Fontaine, Pierre Corneille, and Charles Baudelaire, I have paid homage to some of the most iconic voices in French literature. At the same time, I have also included lesser-known poets such as Paul Verlaine and Sully Prudhomme, which helps to introduce new audiences to their work.

The music from my first album adds an extra layer of emotion and depth to the video, and it helps to enhance the impact of the poems.

By turning these poets into cartoons, I hope I have breathed new life into them, making them more accessible and engaging for modern audiences:

It’s a celebration of the rich and diverse world of French poetry. Using music, animation, and color creates a truly immersive experience that is both entertaining and enlightening.
