(17/1/1920 - 9/6/2003, France) Georges Pichard studied at l'École des Arts Appliqués in Paris. Later, he would return there as a teacher. He went into publishing, but in 1946 he switched to illustrating. He worked for various magazines and made his comic debut in 1956 with 'Miss Mimi'. In 1964, he met writer Jacques Lob, with whom he created some superhero parodies such as 'Ténébrax' and 'Submerman', before entering the field in which he became famous - erotic comics.
The first of this genre was 'Blanche Épiphanie' in 1967. In 1970, he created, together with writer George Wolinski, his most famous character: Paulette. Many other round-breasted beauties followed her, like Caroline Choléra, Marie-Gabrielle and Carmen. Pichard worked together with various writers, of whom Danie Dubos was one of the most interesting for her outstanding scenarios. Pichard adapted some of the world's famous erotic stories such as 'Mémoirs d'un Don Juan' by Guillaume Apollinaire and 'The Kama-Sutra' by Vatsyayana.Pichard's style is immediately recognizable: he draws tall, well-endowed women, whose starry eyes with excessive make-up give them a teutonian and gothic look. Apart from being a master of the erotic genre, Pichard also illustrated countless books and magazines, drew humor cartoons and made lithographs in his more than 40-year long career. He died in June, 2003.
