Comment

Il fut un temps où je prenais les auteurs de BD en photo que je leur demandais de signer ensuite. Monsieur Roger Camille (Kiko), m'a demandé de reprendre la photo et me l'a renvoyée (par la poste ?) rehaussée d'un envoi et d'un petit dessin de Foufi. Je n'ai jamais accepté la disparition survenue trop tôt de cet homme admirable.

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.
