Lucie Larousse  French illustrator living in Paris. contact me at larousselucie@gmail.com

Chilling in #toulouse just last week with @antoinemaillardcomics and @gamberoussette… I miss that good sunshine ☀️☀️☀️
This pic could almost be textbook instagram material if it wasn’t for the plastic bags (full of good fruits and vegetables from the local market btw)… oh well, you’re mostly here for the drawings anyways!

Throwback to a piece I did for the Opinions sections of the New York Times, all the way back in 2014, under the direction of @zsigmonda.
The article was about California’s drought and can still be found here :
https://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/17/opinion/what-to-do-about-californias-drought.html

Little did I know this piece would get me a place in a group exhibition that would have me travelling all the way to New York! I feel so lucky I got to have my work exhibited At the Society of Illustrators @soi128 and in the New York Times building. It was a great experience!

I have yet to recollect all of my phone pictures from the madness of New York under the rain, deserted and windy Coney Island a week prior to its opening, The different districts of Brooklyn ans Manhattan, etc and do some paintings inspired from this.

“2018, Year of the Cellulite” !
A drawing I did as a sticker to be sold as merch by the french fat activist organisation Gras Politique:

First of all, I’d like to thank you all for your tremendous support, your lovely comments and you overall appreciation of my work. It means a lot to me to be able to express myself on such personal topics as #fatshaming and #fatacceptance and get such a positive and enthusiastic response!

As to why I took some time away, well, I had kind of a burn-out. After creating/curating the @fatventcalendar plus my own content, I had very little time to rest before helping for a french fat activist event… so when my internet was cut right away afterwards I saw it as a blessing, to be honest. Two weeks of complete isolation in January. It is only now that I can have another go at drawing. That’s how it is when your brain doesn’t quite work like it should. You have to learn from your mistakes, and mine was to ignore my limits when it comes to discussing/producing about #fatphobia and burn the candle at both ends. This topic definitely requires more energy of me than regular illustration work. Because it affects me personally.

By the way, even though activism is dear to my heart, I should be upfront with you, new followers: it is not the only thing i draw about. But you probably figured that out from browsing my account already. I hope you enjoy the ride nevertheless. It’s going to be chock-full of silly creatures, various mental-health related cartoons and other things I have yet to decide.
Onwards to 2018 !

Since all the “new year, new you” diet-exercise-shrink-yourself-take-up-as-little-space-as-possible frenzy is days away I thought I’d share this other comic of mine about being a people pleaser while fat…
It really isn’t worth it.
There will always be something about you for people to criticize as long as you don’t fit their narrow views of “health” and “beauty”.
Do you own thing, folks, you got this!

Portrait of the artist celebrating Christmas. A Variation.
I wish you good times, or at the very least neutral times, or at the very least for it to be over soon, depending on your situation.
Sending you much love <3 <3 <3

[comic] End of the year can be a tough time for a lot of us, so I thought I’d show you this comic I made some time ago. There’s that one person that will always be with you: yourself. I’m not saying it’s easy to work together, but it’s worth it. (also flip through the whole thing I promise there’s a happy ending)

Today I gave an interview about my fat activist work WHILE being filmed coloring a drawing that could fit into @fatventcalendar ! It was intense multitasking to say the least… my brain is pouring our of my ears.
But I think it went well.

Anyway, have some girlfriends! 👭
I might rework on them a bit before scanning this picture…
