Sketchbook Saturday: Our 10 Favourite Elyx Moments on Instagram

If you’re not familiar with Elyx, he is a stick figure drawn from the imagination of French media artist Yacine AIT KACI. Living here in Canada we had somehow missed this tiny phenomenon since his creation in 2011, so imagine how surprised we were when someone tagged us in this highly creative “Elyx visits the Eiffel Tower” photo on Instagram:

Yes indeed, it does appear that the well-loved Elyx makes his home mainly in Paperblanks® Micro journals! Once we were turned on to Elyx we got lost in his Instagram account, totally impressed and consistently surprised by the fun ways that Yacine works his character into everyday scenes. While we recommend you head on over to check out Elyx on Instagram yourself (https://instagram.com/elyxyak/), we’ve gathered up ten more of our favourite sketches to help get you started.
