Another favorite detective. Simenon, the author, based him on France's greatest detective - Chief Inspector Marcel Guillaume - the two men became friends. Maigret was always calm, unflappable, and seemed to be a man who knew the answers to questions before he asked them. Many films and TV series have been made, but I've based my Maigret on a French comedian of the same era. Fernandel, he had a long lugubrious face, so my Maigret is based on a memory of that. Simenon wrote many books on Maigret, and they're great. A first class detective, working in Paris, what more could you want?
About the Artist
Self taught. Love drawing. Like to make pictures up, without using reference pics, often in cartoon style. I do other pictures where I do use reference. I'm knocking on a bit, born in 1940 in Greenwich, London. Retired, and loving it.View full profile
