Hudon, Normand

Normand Hudon was born in Montreal in 1929. After completing his studies at the École des Beaux-Arts in Montreal, he received a scholarship to study with the painter Fernand Léger at Académie de Montmartre in Paris.

From 1948 to 1958, Hudon worked as a freelance cartoonist for a variety of Montreal publications, including Le Photo Journal, Le Petit Journal and La Patrie. From 1958 to 1961, he worked fulltime for Le Devoir, where he gained renown for his scathing caricatures of Maurice Duplessis, whom he always showed accompanied by a vulture. In 1961, he joined the staff of La Presse, working there until 1965.

In addition to his editorial cartooning, Hudon worked on animated TV shows, managed humour magazines and had a successful career as a painter. He died in 1997.
