From Coeurs Sanglants Et Autres Faits Divers, the restaurant is named Three Brothers. So it’s a family matter, I guess?
One of the fascinating people encountered in Los Angeles.
A scene from the reportage graphic novel Los Angeles: L’Etoile Oubliee De Laurie Bloom.
From Bilal’s vehicle series, this monstrosity looks like something that would give Death Race 2000 a run for its money.
Another from Bilal’s vehicle series. The textures of stone and metal almost blend yet remain distinct.
Another striking vehicles design that is uniquely Bilal’s own. The cockpit is positively predatory.
Bilal did a series of illustrations for various vehicles, including this one. I love how they are so distinctly in his style with his sense of design: bulky and lived-in, both realistic and believably fantastic.
One of my favorite images from Coeurs Sanglants Et Autres Faits Divers, and one of his best use of the painted photograph technique for the reportage comics with Christin.
