I was born on the January 13, 1938 at Châlons-sur-Marne. I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember.
At 13, I did drawings for the school news sheet, as well as for the local daily, L’Union. I worked for them until 1961. Between times, aged 19, I drew my first page for Paris Match.
On return from my military service in Algeria, I participated in the Hara-kiri venture from 1960 to 1983, then Pilote from 1962 to 1972.
But it was while working for Le Figaro, between 1966 and 1971, that I created the courtroom sketches of the Ben Barka trial. From 1977 to 1987, I took part in the TV programme Récré A2.
After the first life of Charlie Hebdo from 1970 to 1982, I relaunched the title with some friends in 1992, and I still work for Le Canard enchaîné.
