We end our week dedicated to comics with drawings by Sophie Lambda. This young illustrator and author of comics tells us through her illustrations of her daily life in times of confinement in France. Every day, she publishes on her Facebook page her “confinement notebooks”, where she illustrates these new times with brio and humor. You will find a selection of them below.

And you, what has your daily life been like lately? How has coronavirus changed your daily life? Tell us in drawing and put it in the comment!

See you next week for a new theme!

Saturday

  • Boost your day by doing manual work. We put your talents on the line through this practical activity for young people from the Palais de Tokyo. Share your achievement!
  • Discovery of a flagship product of French gastronomic culture: the “saucisson”. Consumed since the time of the Gauls, this product has survived the ages and can still be found on our plates today. Come and discover its particularities and the reasons for its immense success.
