Jean-Jacques Sempé, a French cartoonist usually just known as Sempé, is one of my favorite artists. His work highlights the everyday moments that make life so sweet—a moment with friends, loved ones, or quiet moments alone. Some of my particular favorites are those when a person or group of people are illuminated under a light or inside a restaurant or home. It’s sentimental, intimate, and just beautiful.







He also does detailed drawings of cities and the countryside often from a high or overhead angle that are simply amazing.










His work has appeared on the cover of the New Yorker many, many times. Check out their store to view some of his work or purchase prints.
