from Petits Belges, by Collette Pattinger

Collette Pattinger was an illustrator for early French illustrated magazines for girls. She was raised in Munich, Germany, where her talent was spotted by Fliegende Blätter artist Hengeler when she was 12 years old. By 1909 the very young artist joined the team of Mon Journal as an illustrator. In the 1920s, she was one of the main artists during the early years of Petits Belges, published by Averbode in Belgium.

She was also present in Lisette and La Semaine de Suzette, where she signed with either Collette Pattinger or Collette May. For L'Ami des Enfants, she illustrated the comic story 'Les Merveilleuses Aventures de Nigaudin'. She was also a regular illustrator for Drapeau, the French/Flemish magazine of the margarine brand Drapeau, that commenced publication in 1926. In 1940, she was present in Bayard with 'Goupil - Les Oies du Petit Berger'.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
