tGIF — April 15, 2016

Welcome to our Medium-ised tGIFs! We’re testing to see if Medium is the right kind of space for these kinds of posts, so let us know if you enjoy this style of content. In addition, we’re changing the weekly format into a once-a-month spotlight. We’ve decided to turn the beginning of this year into Girl Power tGIF, spotlighting inspiring female artists and creators.

This month we have French illustrator Cécile Dormeau currently working and living in Germany. Her animations and illustrations are so playful and tongue-in-cheek, using bright colours and simplicity to highlight common pain-points that everyone has felt sometime in their lives. Her subject matter ranges from self-waxing to industry job problems, big boobs to big butts as well as stereotypical gender roles. She illustrates all this in her quirky illustration style, capturing real life, imperfect forms and all, in a perfectly relatable way.
