Description

A lushly illustrated wordless graphic novel about 24 hours in the life of a Bengal tiger in the wild. With a tapir, crocodile, baboons, peacock, black panthers, fox, piranha, elephants, cobras, and other creatures.

From the publisher:

Life in the jungle can be both beautiful and savageĀ… ....

A lush paradise when viewed from a distance, providing camouflage to a daily Hell of trials and survival for those who live there. Portrayed as a day in the life of the king of the jungle, this lavishly illustrated story follows a single majestic tiger through a wordless adventure as it hunts prey and defends itself from other would-be killers defending their own territory. This exciting tale by Frédéric Brrémaud is told without narration or dialogue, conveyed entirely through the beautiful illustrations of Federico Bertolucci.

This beautiful, all-ages title explores genuine natural behavior through the dramatic lens of Disney-esque storytelling, like a nature documentary in illustration.

LOVE: The Tiger won the Special Jury Awards at the 2011 Lucca Comics Festival, and is the first of several volumes focusing on a different wild animal in a different natural environment.

Federico: Many factors have influenced the way I draw, halfway between Disney animation and realism. First of all maybe, my love for Carl Barks comics: his ducks were in perfect Disney style and extremely dynamic, but in a real environment. They did not have over the top distortion and their expressions were always truthful, natural. His characters had such a concreteness that they could have been real. I have certainly been influenced by Barks, but also by the beautiful Disney cartoons and my academic formation. When I started working with Frederic, I was already working for Disney Italia and our first book together, “Richard Lionheart,” really reflects that style: I realized anthropomorphic characters using a pencil, without inking, so as to give it a fresh look. The result vaguely recalls Robin Hood, the Disney film. We then did another project, “Rocambole,” where I distanced myself even more from the clean style, using the pencil more freely, leaving the constructions lines visible, etc. At the same time, I developed a colouring technique in Photoshop that simulates a fresh and manual execution. I used the same technique for Love. In the end, I have developed a graphic style that lets me be free to express myself.
