 Gersande @lesyeuxfripons' Portrait, sketch creator of the REIDI Romper

Where did you get your inspiration for the REIDI Romper sketch ?  

I found inspiration in the collection of retro children's clothes that my mother built up over several years, she was visiting a lot of garage sales and had a real passion for the style of the 1940s, 1950s & 1960s.

When did you start drawing ?

I've been drawing since 2015.

When you are not drawing for Marsou what is your activity(ies) ?

When I'm not drawing, I work part-time in a shop. If not I read, I watch a lot of everything related to the child's world, I go to the cinema with my children and I draw with my daughter who has already an artist’s touch !

What decorations for your children's room?

I really like the brand FermlivingLilipinso for wallpapers, Egmont Toys for children's nightlights, and Olliella for their baskets and cradle.

What are your 3 favorite spots for kids in your neighborhood ?

I like to take them to Félicita Restaurant for a snack (their cakes are really good!), bring them to the Mk2 cinema and then go eat pizza at IT Trattoria in front of the cinema. And on Sunday mornings, we go to the pool at La Butte aux Cailles.

Marsou in few words ?

Marsou is really the style I like to draw and that I love for my children. It's a style that manages to combine the retro and at the same time the trendy side, keeping a refined and elegant side with soft and stylish colours that you never get tired of. The children are really cute with Marsou !
