Ok so there is some profanity, some cigarette smoking, some drinking, and some leg-shaving – and stubble.
But I Really Wanted to be an Anthropologist is a fun read about life as a young parent, a work-from-home illustrator, a Parisian.
She’s a little neurotic, a little too obsessed with shoes, loves to rib her football-loving partner, and adores (but often is completely frustrated by) her young daughter.
There were plenty of pages that made me chuckle cos I could see myself doing just that. Like, erm, the second picture.
Margaut Motin (website in French), born in 1978, grew up in Normandy, France and became interested in drawing as a child. She studied at the ENSAAMA (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et Métiers d’Art) Olivier de Serres in Paris, before going on to become a magazine editor.
LOL, this looks like something I’d love.
Ha ha ha!! That is FANTASTIC! I remember those years so very well 😉
Hee it was such a fun read, this one.
Sounds (and looks) like something I would enjoy! 🙂
