Benjamin Rabier

Benjamin Rabier (before 1929) Benjamin Rabier (1864–1939) was a French illustrator, comic book artist and animator. He became famous for creating ''La vache qui rit'' and is one of the precursors of animal comics. His work has inspired many other artists, notably Hergé and Edmond-François Calvo.

A native of La Roche-sur-Yon, Vendée, Rabier started to work as an illustrator for various newspapers after meeting Caran d'Ache. His first album for children was the story of ''Tintin-Lutin'', published in 1898, which told of a young ''lutin'' or "imp"; here his main characters are human and not animals, as they came to be in later albums. His most famous creations are Gideon the duck and the characters he drew for Le roman de Renart.

He died at Faverolles, Indre, in 1939. Provided by Wikipedia
