Comment

J'ai eu la chance de rencontrer Mr KIKO au salon de la bd de Maisons-laffite vers 2000 - 2001.

J'avais donc pu témoigner à cet artiste d'une désarmante gentillesse toute la sympathie que j'avais pour son travail.

En ajoutant ces 2 dessins à la galerie qui lui est consacrée sur 2DG, j'essaye de contribuer modestement à perpétuer son souvenir.

Merci pour tout Mr. KIKO

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.
