About - What you should know.
On this page you will find all useful information about "The Drawing Coypu", the propagandist craftsman behind the posters, cards and other visuals featured on this site.
The Anarchist Propagandist.
Anarchist for a long time and illustrator of vintage stuff since March 2020.
I am lucky enough to be a propagandist artist who lives in France with his partner, his cats and his neuro-atypia.
I love coypus (which I can use to remain anonymous on the Internet), puffins and buckwheat pancakes.
Precarious & unemployed (but not jobless), I draw both to calm my anxieties and to earn a little money.
My main goal is to make anarchist, communist and socialist propaganda that affects the largest number of people.
So I include progressive and revolutionary messages in my work, as well as inclusive and radical themes.
Mutual aid, class struggle, anti-authoritarianism but also the matters ofgender identity or the denunciation of police brutality are my favourite subjects.
From an anarchist perspective and a desire for accessibility, I distribute my content for free.
All my work (except for commissions) is published under a Creatives Commons license..
In addition to this free sharingI offer paid services and prints for purchase.
This free / for profit compromise allows me (to try) to make a living from my work while respecting my ideological convictions as much as possible.
My creations are inspired by posters, maps and iconographic documents from the 1840s to the 1920s, and more particularly by Victorian, Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau styles.
My aim is to make revolutionary propaganda by diverting the uses of advertising and by refusing the current norms of communication. This is reflected both in the choice of messages and in the refusal to respect the hierarchy of information and symbols of modern design.
Loki Gwynbleidd House and its founder are present on other platforms and networks to
shitpost spread Vintage and Anarchist Propaganda and discuss perspectives of struggles.
Used to make the differents artworks.
The computer-generated visuals allow great creative freedom while providing a certain security (crtl + Z my friend!)
For my posters, I base myself on old illustrations (engravings, lithographs, etc.) from which I draw inspiration for the composition and/or the rendering.
In order to recreate the vintage styles that I like, I use a combination of free brushes and textures copied from old documents.
Except for the typography, almost all content has been designed and thought out on a computer.
The digital posters and models are made on computer equipment and more specifically with :
The linocuts are produced using :
