Georges Prosper Remi/Hergé's Work

Many works came from the hands of Georges Prosper Remi, aka Hergé. It took him a while to find his own style, but when he did, he created a new technique called 'Brussels School of the Clear Line'.

In 1925 Hergé obtains work at the subscriptions department of Le Vingtième Siècle, a Belgian newspaper and it didn't take long for his first cartoon 'Totor' to be published in a Scouting magazine.

When in 1928 he was given the responsibility to come up with material for the newspaper's youth supplement illustrations like the Adventures of Flup, Nénesse, Poussette, and Cochonnet were done by Hergé.

However, he was not happy with all these and when he was asked to come up with a new, young, heroic character, he grabbed it with both hands and introduced Tintin and Snowy on January 10, 1929.

He is also the creator of Quick & Flupke, a comic strip which also appeared during this time and ran for several years in the youth edition of the newspaper. Other, later characters and comic series were Jo, Zette and Jocko.

Tintin was inspired by Palle Huld, a fifteen year old boy, who won a trip around the world and wrote the book 'Around the World in 44 Days with Palle'.
