Pierre Kroll

Born in 1958 in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo (at the time it was still a Belgian colony), Pierre Kroll initially studied environmental science and architecture before embarking on a career as a freelance cartoonist in 1985. Today, he is the resident cartoonist for both the daily Le Soir and the weekly Télémoustique, and appears on RTBF's Sunday current affairs programme, which broadcasts live footage of his work as it is being drawn. He is also popular in France, where his cartoons often feature in Courrier International. In 1986, he was awarded the French Prix de l’humour vache (Caustic Humour Prize), and he won the Press Cartoon of Belgium award for best cartoonist in both 2006 and 2009.
