- DRAWER -
Edmond Baudoin is a cartoonist and scriptwriter and an illustrator.
After attending the Arts Décoratifs de Nice in his teens, he worked as an accountant before returning to drawing in 1971.
He slipped his first short comic stories into the Canard Sauvage in 1974, then into Circus, Pilote and the Echo des Savanes. "Civilisation", his first album published by Glénat in 1981, is a collection of some of his early research work.
Deepening his impressionist and suggestive graphics, he then published a series of works with Futuropolis: Les sentiers cimentés (1981), Passe le temps (1982), La peau du lézard (1983), Un flip coca (1984), Un rubis sur les lèvres (1986), Le premier voyage (1987), Le Portrait (1990), Couma Aco (1991). When this publisher was taken over by the Gallimard publishing house and limited to the enhancement of literary texts, he illustrated works by Le Clézio, Tahar Ben Jelloun and Jean Genet.
From 1999 to 2003, he was an art professor at the Université du Québec en Outaouais.
His albums are mainly in black and white; their graphic originality lies between painting and comics, the fact that he uses brushes to work his black flat tints is probably not foreign to this.
