Ella & Pitr Draw You Their Diary of World Travels in “Baiser D’Encre”

Who knew that babies could use so many diapers! What to do when you are in a foreign city and both of you are sick as dogs? Also, we may need a crane to help us finish the world’s largest roof mural.

These considerations are things you draw into your travelogue diary when you are Ella & Pitr, the painters of enormous kings, pilots, and couples cuddled in bed on fields, rooftops, and beaches around the world.

The French street art couple are never very far from home in their thoughts, even when scoring paint for an enormous multi-roof portrait or flying in a helicopter over top of it – especially when they have a toddler and an infant waiting back at the hotel or at their grandparents’ house in France.

This new book “Baiser D’Encre” (Kiss Ink) captures the drawings Ella & Pitr make at restaurants, bus stops, hotel rooms, and while waiting for a plane – little entertaining sketches from the road with entire stories attached to them that they can share with their kids and family.

Here is a city we went to, these are odd people whom we met, this is Mommy coughing uncontrollably and Daddy ready to vomit.

This hand-drawn diary contains more information about personal and professional relationships, relative personalities, attachments to objects, struggles in life and their ability to lighten a rotten situation with humor than a written diary could.

Doodles, daydreams, depictions of everyday circumstances, and collaboratively drawn pieces with their kids tell the reader about their interconnected emotions and imaginings in way that thousands of words may fall short.

Encompassing roughly a year of their life, Ella & Pitr give you the good, the bad, and the option to laugh at it all.
