Korneel Detailleur (b. 1986) has a style that is ethereal, slightly absurdist and a little dark. In his illustrations he likes to leave plenty of room for the story. Sometimes he takes photographs as his starting point, adapting them until they start to look strange. What he likes best is creating a bizarre new reality that still feels acceptable somehow. In Someone’s Sweetheart Detailleur illustrates Bart Moeyaert’s story using countless shades between black and white and equal amounts of nuance, humour and simplicity.
