Sac à Puces, by Carine de Brab
'Sac à Puces'.

Carine de Brab decided to become a comic artist for children early on. She studied at the Institut Saint-Luc in Brussels, while she also cooperated on the animated feature film 'Le Chaînon Manquant' (1980) by Picha. After some advertising jobs, she met Yvan Delporte, with whom she did her first comics work. They cooperated on some 'Les Zingari' scripts (art by René Follet), before they created 'Les Puzoletti' in Spirou in 1987, a story that featured De Brab's artwork. She continued to work for Spirou magazine in the following years, creating short stories, game pages and the gag series 'Suzy' (with Sergio Salma).

For l'Écureuil, she made the gag series 'Tamia et Piko'. In 1992 she started the children's series 'Margot et Oscar Pluche' with writers Zidrou and Falzar for Casterman. This series was continued in Spirou and in albums by Dupuis under the name 'Sac à Puces' from 1998 to 2009. Also with Zidrou, she made 'Choco' for Casterman in 2000 and 'Zigo le Clown' for Milan in 2011. For the Dupuis collection Puceron she created the series 'La Vavache' (art Vertonghen) and 'Méchant Benjamin' (art by herself).

In 1987-1988 the publishing company Brain Factory International released a four-volume comic book series where Franco-Belgian comic authors visualized several songs by singer Jacques Brel in comic strip form. The first volume, 'Le Plat Pays' (1987) featured a contribution by her.
