Jules Magistry’s Illustrations Of Adolescence, Masculinity And Violence In A Modern World

Jules Magistry blends a little anime, manga and comic book art to dream up his thought-provoking illustrations, all centred around the theme of adolescence, masculinity and violence.

The Paris-based illustrator loved drawing as a child, apparently inspired by ’90s pop culture icons like Power Rangers, Sailor Moon or Tekken characters. But it wasn’t until a brief stint in law school and a few years working in graphic design for publishing houses that he decided to pursue illustration as a career instead. It was also during that time that his work took a darker turn.

“I really began to focus on adolescents because it was hard for me to live it and to let go,” Jules tells Creative Boom. “I studied mass shootings, young human beings, strong feelings, tragedies… beginning with Columbine. It shows so much about how fucked up things are – the relations between parents and teenagers, the authority, the lack of taking young people seriously, the hierarchy a shallow world already put in institutions like schools, the role of the media… It’s so deep and powerful and now with the Parkland Kids, it’s even more powerful and touching.”
