Camille Aubry is a French graphic artist based in Bristol. She graduated as an architect and scenographer in Paris before completing an MA in Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts. She is a permanent resident at Watershed's Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol where she explores how to take her live illustration practice to the next level with the help of creative technologies.
Camille works as a live illustrator (scribe), documenting academic conferences, cultural and industry events with live drawings and sketchnotes. She develops a 'live illustration' performance practice, combining her ability to draw in the moment, inspired by what she witnesses, with the longer tricks of the sequential arts and the help of creative technologies. Her commissioners include the University of Bristol, South West Creative Technology Network, NHS, French Institute, SS Great Britain and Bluebell Care.
Through her illustrations and cartoons Camille likes to tell stories of activism, whether they are born in the streets or at home, in the social unit of the family. Her on-going graphic novel A Journey to Motherhood was longlisted for the Laydeez Do Comics Award and is being published as a blog series on the Graphic Medicine website since December 2019. Since 2018 Camille co-manages the Bristol Laydeez do Comics branch and organises comics-related events around the city. She is a founding member and official illustrator of the French multidisciplinary collective Sans plus Attendre with whom she has worked and exhibited throughout France and mainland Europe.
