You Tube interview with Marguerite Sauvage (Updated 12.23.20)

 One of my fav artists is Canada based Marguerite Sauvage.


She's pictured below left on a panel with Claire Wendling at a convention in Toulouse in 2016.

Sauvage's comic art style has a playful sense of color I find so engaging. She's also one of the artists helping bring more covers and characters of diversity to comics. I was lucky to meet her and attend her panel at WonderCon in 2017. 
You can see photos of that appearance here: https://stuartngbooks.blogspot.com/2017/04/wondercon-2017-artists-alley-guest.html

Below are some cover art images from Sauvage's website:

This week, she was interviewed on the "Dialogos de Comics" (DDC) You Tube channel of Spanish artist David Macho. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_pyXTJ4_BNPa1SrErVJaRg

In this hour-long chat they cover Covid, working in different illustrations styles through a career, working in US and European comics, and more. They are each speaking fluent English for the entire interview, which is neither artist's first language --- mind blown! I can barely order a cheese sandwich in French -- can't imagine being fluent enough in another language to express myself in a QandA situation. 

Hearing each artist discuss how their home countries are handling the Covid vaccine roll-outs, as well as their impressions of what's going on in the US right now, is an bonus. You can also hear some of the reasons why Sauvage enjoys working with the business mind set of US companies.

More about the interview from the DDC You Tube channel page:

"Our guest graduated in Law and Communication in Paris University, but her passion for art quickly made her come a freelance illustrator. She has created art for magazines, advertising, book publishers, animation... And of course, Comics, doing covers and sequential art for Valiant, Marvel, DC, Image Comics, in books life Faith, The Dreaming, Archie, Inmortal Hulk, and others. After all this, I am sure you know I'm talking about the sensational MARGUERITE SAUVAGE!!! We've talked about life, inspiration, language, the craft, influences, the urge to create and the need to express who you are through art... and much more!!! Thanks for joining us!!"
