Name François Monier
Full name François Henry Monier
François Henry Monier also known as Babouse (born 8 May 1972) in Boulogne-sur-Mer is a cartoonist, journalist, Illustrator and author of comics.
He claims to have a certain style of humorous drawing and a sense of the absurd ("L'Humanité", La Vie ouvrière","Psikopat (fr)","France 3 Nord","The Irina","ROXANNE"...), this is felt also in scenarios of his comics ("Spirou","Psikopat"...) or in his writings ("Fluide Glacial")"in the"Babouse blues"). Some of his lighter and more delusional publishings are: ("Play in the House", "Hara-Kiri" - version André Bercoff, "Presto", "Margarine comics", "Lucid Comas", "Hercules and the Golden Fleece"...).
The beady eyes of his characters and their rounded noses is similar to other work done by Chakrapani and Ralf König.
However, at the same time he continued more graphic and tortured work in "humanity" and "new life working" by signing his own name or for illustration of black novels.
In 1982, he went on evening courses in the fine arts in Boulogne-sur-mer. He began his studies at the regional University of the Beaux-Arts de Dunkerque and in 1990, he devoted himself fully to comics and drawing of news.
