Polina by Bastien Vivès

I always find this style of work appealing - it’s loose and gestural, yet it’s still well composed and clear. You can understand what the figures are doing in each panel with what appears to be a hastily drawn line. The ink looks like it was just thrown at the page, like each panel was drawn in an instant. But, each panel holds together. It doesn’t feel like the arrangement of the figures is sloppy, or that the negative space is awkward.

I don’t read or speak French, so I don’t really know what happens in the story, but this is a book I like to look at from time to time.
