Cartoon by Loup
Pas ce soir j'ai malalatête (Fluide Glacial #8)

Jean-Jacques Loup was a popular French cartoonist, who is best known for his many crowded and detailed drawings for jigsaw puzzles. He studied at the National School of Fine Arts in Lyon, and was an architect and jazz pianist. He worked in Paris as a cartoonist from 1969 until his death.

from Mormoil, by Jean-Jacques Loup (1975)

During the 1970s and early 1980s, he was present in magazines like Mormoil, Fluide Glacial, L'Express, Le Canard Enchaîné, Charlie Mensuel, Libération, Playboy and Marie-Claire. He was editorial illustrator for VSD for 15 years. Album collections of his work have been published by Audie ('Touti Frouti', 1977), Dargaud ('La Bible de...', 1984) and Glénat ('La Vie des Maitres' parts 1 and 2, 1983-85). Loup made a graphic contribution to Marion Vidal's 'Monsieur Schulz et ses Peanuts’ (Albin Michel, 1976), an essay about Charles M. Schulz'’ 'Peanuts’, illustrated with subversive parodies of the comic, that Schulz unsuccessfully tried to sue. 

He passed away in the night between 31 July and 1 August 2015.
