Sfar on Gainsbourg

French comics artist Joann Sfar, who was nominated for the 2010 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, has more talents than drawing and writing comics. He is also a movie director, having just premiered the movie Gainsbourg, Vie Héroïque, about the French national icon and artist Serge Gainsbourg. A great feature on the official movie website is the Aquarelle du jour – daily aquarelle painting where Sfar himself illustrates a part of the life of Gainsbourg. An example below:
