Tomi Ungerer

died 87yo on February 8th 2019 in Ireland.

Children book author and drawer, anarchist of the mind, wanderer, philosopher, cartoonist, political activist, rebel.

Born 1931, grown up fatherless, war experiences as child in Alsace, kicked off school, seaman, fisherman, foreign legionnaire, one who takes children for serious, illustrator, satirist, author of Fornicon 1970 which scandalized him, as he gets censored also for his children books. He emigrated to Canada, to be a farmer with wife, pig, sheep, dog, chop wood, but still remaining a drawer, sculptor and subversive event artist. He illustrates a German song book which takes 5 years and contains 156 paintings of him, a masterpiece. Eventually he gets rehabilitated, while he continues his oeuvre and leaves behind 140 books and thousands of drawings, collages and objects.

I chose this poster just as one arbitrary example.
