Lapin is a French illustrator, an artist, an urban sketcher based in Barcelona. He can be defined as a mobile illustrator who carries his sketchbook and his compact sketching gear to the street, to a bar, to a metro, to Istanbul or Tokyo. Sketching is a way for him to record every second of his life and feel alive. He can sketch sitting on a floor for hours or just having a beer in his hand or just during one metro stop.
Lapin already filled around 160 sketchbooks for the last 13 years and he particularly appreciates sketching on vintage accounting books from the 70s which he finds in flea markets. According to Lapin a good sketchbook must contain two things ; some doodles of dinosaurs and vintage cars.
Lapin has published several books, among them are “Carnet de Bagnoles vol.1”, “Cuba, an 56 de la Révolution”, “Lapin au Japon”, “Barcelona m’inspira”, “Lapin à Istanbul”, “Lapin à Carcassone”.
