On City Illustration - Marseille

Unlike her fashion-inspired drawings, Decue uses a more restrained palette for her lifestyle illustrations. This particular piece was made for Wissen Magazine's issue #14, and beautifully frames the city of Marseille. With a minimal selection of colours, heavy patterns, and sharp geometry, Decue’s illustration conveys the energy of this bustling port city.

Decue edits her drawings on her computer with digital tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator. Starting off-screen, she plays with her hand-made textures, screen prints and collages. This technique gives her illustrations unique and rich patterns similar to brush and paper textures.
