After her studies in cinema and working as a film director for five years, Cécile Gariépy moved to Paris to pursue a master’s degree. Her life in France was very academic, and creative Cécile started drawing illustrations. She posted her doodles on Instagram and from that moment on, her career path changed. Thanks to social media, Cécile is now an illustrator whose work has been published for Aesop, Spotify, The New York Times Magazine and AFAR, just to name a few.
