Julien Gagnon by Rémy
'Julien Gagnon' (Le Petit Journal, 19 September 1948).

Normand Hudon was educated at the School of Fine Arts in his hometown Montréal, and got a scholarship to study in the atelier of painter Fernand Léger at the Montmartre Academy in Paris. Between 1948 and 1958 he was a caricaturist for magazines and papers like Photo-Journal, Le Petit Journal and La Patrie. Hudon subsequently worked for Le Devoir (1958-61) and La Presse (1961-65). Hudon has also made a few comic strips early in his career, using the pseudonym Rémy. His comic 'Julien Gagnon' was published in Le Petit Journal for 26 weeks, from 16 May to 7 November 1948. Outside his career as a political cartoonist, Hudon was a well-known painter and, together with Dominique Michel and Pierre Thériault, an animator for the TV series 'Au P'tit Café' (1956-1961). He died in 1997 in Montréal at age 67.
