ABSTRACT
This article discusses Renée French's art. The trajectory of French's career changed when she saw the work of cartoonists Chester Brown and Charles Burnes. By using her narrative drawings as a springboard, she began making art that combined text and images to tell a story that could be seen and read anywhere. French's work usually lies outside the realities, however, they are grounded in the familiarities that most can identify and in some way even relate to.
