RENAUD, whose real name is Renaud Denauw, is a Belgian comic book artist and author.
He was born in Mouscron in 1936. From an early age, he pursued artistic activities and studied drawing and lithography at the famous Saint-Luc Institute.
After working in advertising for a while, he found his true calling in drawing. First under the pseudonym Sylvain, for the series Merline, and then under the name Renaud when he created his first heroine: Miss Pamela Waps.
Working successively for Le Journal de Spirou and then for Le Journal de Tintin, his reputation grew, and he collaborated with various writers, including Jean Dufaux. His realistic style, precise but simple drawings, made Renaud one of the most prominent artists in the mid-1980s.
And it was with Dufaux that he came up with the heroine who would bring him fame: Jessica Blandy!
We are in the late 1980s, and by riding the wave of this visual culture (which would become iconic), drawing inspiration from MTV music videos as well as the Coen brothers' films, he established his style and found a wide audience. Jessica Blandy has 25 albums and two spin-offs: La Route Jessica and Crotales.
With Dufaux, he also created the series: Les Enfants de la Salamandre, Santiag, and Venus H. Highly prolific (his latest album, Blousés, was released in 2021 when he was 84 years old), he continued to work on series, collaborations, and became the author of his own scripts (in addition to being the artist), always with the same enthusiasm and talent over the years!
