A First Meeting
Cafébabel, February 10, 2015. After several weeks of exhaustive hunting, we are at an end. The circumstances seemed more hostile each day. Our hope of finding that precious prey had long since deserted us. And yet… suddenly he appeared, right before our eyes. Upon seeing us, he turned his eyes away from the Canadian comedy which had been the focus of his attention. "Hi, I'm Judey, I'm a cartoonist." We stood there astonished, speechless. He got up and came towards us: "You're just in time, I've got a big pot of ketchup pasta ready to go." Here then is a visual homage to this historical meeting.
Hi Judey! As you know, Cafébabel is a European magazine. So we're going to begin by testing your European convictions with this sadistic question: how would you define your idea of Europe through a drawing/cartoon strip?
… not a bad comparison. Let's talk a bit about you. Looking at your work, we'd guess you were a meticulous and diligent kind of person. What does your workday look like?
We were immediately won over by your humour which is rather… peculiar. What inspires you?
And to test your journalistic sensibility a little: which recent news story has particularly stuck with you?
