After his studies in architecture, Robert Vagnier became a press illustrator for Paris Normandie in 1947. He created his famous character 'Poustiquet', in October 1949. Until 1975, this daily strip was distributed by Opera Mundi and published in several French newspapers and even some Brazilian and Israelian. The success also led to the launch of a short-lived magazine, called Jocko et Poustiquet, which appeared from 1954 to 1956. In addition to 'Poustiquet', Bindle created cartoons and another daily strip, 'Lily Sprint', in Paris Normandie.
