One of our favourite artists, Gaëtan Vanparijs, brings us “Dans l’herbe”. The Snake-Oil staff are whimsically and wonderfully reminded of the work of Quint Buchholz.

A native of Brussels, Gaëtan Vanparijs is a young independnt illustrator. He frequently exhibits and enters competitions in order to share his universe. Through “l’étrange vie des autres” (“The strange life of Others”), he inserts a touch of the absurd into everyday scenes, leaving each reader to his own interpretation. He recently finished working on a book about illustrated Monsters’ Biographies,”Monstrueusement vôtre”. He is influenced by movies and the Belgian surrealism that surrounds him. More of his work can be seen at Flickr.
His other contributions to Snake-Oil Cure can be found here.
