Lapin is a French illustrator, an artist, an Urban Sketchers working for fashion, advertising and editorial who lives between Barcelona and Paris.
Lapin can be defined as a mobile illustrator who carries his sketchbook to the street, to a bar, to a metro, to Istanbul or Tokyo. Sketching is a way for him to record every second of his life and feel alive. He may sketch sitting on a floor for hours or just having a beer in his hand or just during one metro stop.
He already filled around 150 sketchbooks for the last 10 years and he particularly appreciates sketching on vintage accounting books that he finds in flea markets. For him, a good sketchbook must contain two things: some doodles of dinosaurs and vintage cars.
Lapin was selected as young illustrator award by illustrative in 2007. He also teaches art of "sketching" during workshops in universities and in art schools. He participates in exhibitions around Europe and he shares his day to day sketches on his blog.
