Illustration : Madeleine

For this week assignment, I decided to illustrate the song “Madeleine” by Jacques Brel.

The song tells the story of a man, deeply in love with a girl called Madeleine. He has a date with her every week and imagines how wonderful it would be to spend time with her, but Madeleine is not coming. We finally understand at the end of the song that he is waiting for her any week, but she never comes and never will.

I illustrated a few verses showing the different steps of the story.
