On In Relationship

French Artist Illustrates Brutally Honest And Lustful Side Of Love Life

From seduction to obsession to fantasies to libido to passion, one basic human need is satisfied. Many a time, this need turns into a want! The limerence that one feels is very much different from true love, the only desire there is a reciprocation of one's feelings. Going wild and kinky all over the place, there are these illustrations by the French illustrator and comic artist Marion Fayolle. They are a beautiful portrayal that speaks volumes through their silence! Love and loss, passion and betrayal and longing and lust presented here are funny yet poignant. But some are philosophical and deep, too. These illustrations are so subtle that they whisper through meticulous figures, against the intricacies of human relations. The words by Alain de Botton on intimacy are the best fit here..."Intimacy is a capacity to be rather weird with someone, and finding that that's ok with them."Have a look at the wordless yet vocal narratives, here.

When she has to lie in front of the doctor like an open book.

For him to explore, the corners!

Something that should be cared for.

For it is tender and fragile, too.

Gosh! what did I just see!

That is so savagely hilarious, she has to bowl them down.


A blindfolded aim, yet so 'on point'. *Pun-intended*

*Eyes popped out*

Face in hands at this! Harsh reality of the obsession with ****s!

For this may be a case with a lot of women.

When he loses all interest.


Is the need of the hour.

Puppets, in the hands of...

Since childhood.

When their ****ies want to talk it out!

And are making it all up to meet!

What ornaments for the Christmas tree!

Wild imagination, I must say. Those apples and pears!

Ohhh fish!

The sharpening of an axe or a pencil?!

For the romantic thoughts in their minds...

Soon to be enacted...

When she blows his trumpet...

With all her 'blowing' skills! A 'job' well done!

Now that's a red flag to a bull.

All ready to attack and 'grab'!

The blindfolded being guided in an unclear direction.

Darn dangerous.

For it is one after the other... A complete trail...

Until the last one discovers only to give him a lesson. The chain of betrayal portrayed well.

For maybe she needs it both ways...

When she is not able to get over her past, there's 'something' stuck there.

No man no, she can reside on a more reliable 'bench'!

There is still place for 'a lot of others', too!

Man, can you please get over the obsession!

Fed up of the spotting, every time.

Now this is what I was looking for!

When one breaks one's own walls!

When the 'fairway' is always treated otherwise...

Unfairly! Just like a mission to accomplish.

For when she thinks...

Does she evolve and emerges a creator.

When she has to swing between the two, on a tight rope.

The indecisiveness...

The suspended love.

What they have in mind... cannot be hidden.

Now that is hilarious and outright honest.

When his 'train' wants to enter her 'cave'...

Wild imagination, this is called!

When he is 'harp'ing at her strings!
