from La Joie des Enfants (1905)

Maurice Boyer, who mostly signed with Moriss, but also with Mo'Rice, drew for Le Pêle-Mêle from 1895. Later on, he was also present in La Chronique Amusante and Polichinelle. His humorous drawings were made in a geometric style that was very modern at the time. He made comics for Le Bon Vivant from 1902, and later on for American Illustré, Le Cri-Cri, Les Belles Images, La Joie des Enfants, L'Epatant, Cadet Revue and Ololé, until the mid-1940s.
