A real-life hand erases a cartoon's five o'clock shadow in Jean Jullien's Instagram illustrations.
We all have our morning routines. For some, it’s an hour-long operation involving a blow dryer and a curling iron. For others, it’s a quick shower and a shave. This week, we want to acknowledge the banal rituals we follow day in and day out. Beloved artist Jean Jullien's Instagram account has us covered: the French illustrator's feed is full of zany cartoons superimposed by reality, but this week he added a live-action component that ironically makes the concept even more surreal. His work tends to make light of society's mundane, often vapid habits, like using an IRL hand to erase away a cartoon's five o’clock shadow. Check out more of Jullien's meditations on the mundane in the 'grams below.
