About Jacques Faizant

Jacques Faizant was one of France's most popular press illustrators. After studying at the hotel school in Nice, he worked in several hotels until 1938. He settled in Marseille and went to work as an illustrator. During the War, he drew for Le Dimanche Illustré and La Revue de l'Écran, while also composings songs and cooperating with Lortac on animation projects. Upon the Liberation, he headed for Paris and started out working for Carrefour and L'Ecran Français. He was eventually assigned by Jean Nohain of Bonjour Dimanche and its supplement Le Petit Canard. For this supplement, Faizant made comics like 'Le Colonel Broum et Patapoum', 'Pyk et Pato au Centre de la Terre', 'Monsieur Mite' and 'L'Invraisemblable M. Pluche'. He also made several strips for the daily press, of which 'Adam et Eve' was the longest running . From 1960, Faizant worked as a political cartoonist for Le Figaro, while also continuing to work as a humorous illustrator in Le Chasseur Français, La Vie du Rail, Détective, Rires Magazine and jardin des Modes until the 1990s.

jule Heureux de rencontrer un afficianado de Faizant. Il faut effectivement mettre un peu de côté ses dessins politiques qui ont mal vieilli et privilégié tous les autres intemporels.

Petzi Un grand dessinateur que l'on reconnait à son trait unique.

blazoc Faizant touche l'excellence, notamment lorsqu'il ne parle pas de politique dans ses dessins. C'est par ailleurs un très bon aquarelliste. Un dessin plein de poésie.
