You just have to take one look at this year’s poster to realize that Jean-Claude Servais has managed to perfectly capture the spirit of the BIFFF. This gifted comic-strip artist started his career in the seventies with stories in Belgium’s two most famous comic-strip magazines Spirou and Tintin. In the eighties he made his mark with stories of magic and witchcraft taking place in the forests and valleys of the Ardennes. His most famous creation is the free-spirited ‘Tendre Violette’, but he’s also the author of ‘Iriacynthe’, ‘La Tchalette’, ‘Isabelle’ and ‘La Mémoire des Arbres’.
