KIKO : encre de chine et rehauts de lavis pour une illustration publiée dans le Journal de SPIROU n°1564 du 4 avril 1968. Signée en haut à droite.

L'illustration était prévue pour figurer en couverture du SPIROU de Pâques... et finalement le choix de l'éditeur se porta deux semaines de suite sur une superbe illustration de Raymond MACHEROT, avec pour le SPIROU Spécial Pâques une composition aux couleurs crépusculaires mauve et rosées typiques de ce que MACHEROT adorait créer.

About Kiko

Roger Camille alias Kiko (Heliopolis, 24 May 1936 - Brussels, 23 May 2006), was a Belgian cartoonist. He was born in Egypt but he left this countryside when it was governed by Nasser in the 1960s. He started working in Spirou magazine where he created his famous 1965 character Foufi, originally created for a Lebanese newspaper. He worked as a publicist later, specially for the ice cream company Motta. He lived in Schaerbeek and died on the eve of his 70th birthday. Two albums of Foufi were published by Dupuis in French and Dutch.
