Julie Doucet, born in Saint-Lambert, is a Quebecois comic book artist. She has produced works classified as alternative comics, but also feminist, including her fanzine Dirty Plotte.
Around the same time, her work popped up in several alternative reviews in the USA, such as Robert Crumb's Weirdo, Wimmen's Comix', Heck!, Buzzard and Rip-Off Comix. She won the Harvey Award for best new talent in 1991. That same year, she went to New York for a year, and her experiences there are told in the book 'My New York Diary' (Drawn & Quarterly, 1999). She then settled in Seattle until 1995. She continued to make comic books published by Drawn & Quarterly, such as 'Lève ta Jambe mon Poisson est Mort' (1993). She also published her 'Monkey and the Living Death' under the Chacal Puant label.
Doucet eventually headed for Europe, where he mainly lived in Berlin until 1998. The German publisher Reprodukt gave her her own title called 'Schnitte', while she also continued to work for the Canadian independent label Mille Putois and for Drawn & Quarterly ('My Most Secret Desire', 1995). Back in Montréal, she took on 'L'Affaire Madam Paul' for the cultural weekly magazine Ici in 1999. She also contributed to the French publisher L'Association and its anthology Comix 2000. In the early 2000s, she also turned to illustration and joined the Graff atelier.
