-------------------------------------
Benjamin Rabier is one of the masters of early French comics and an animation pioneer, best known for his animal drawings. Born in La Roche Sur Yon as the son of a carpenter, he moved to Paris with his family at age 5.
His first drawings were published in magazines like La Chronique Amusante and Le Gil Blas Illustré. Until 1895, he earns most fame in England and the USA, w he draws for Scraps, Pictorial Comic Life and Puck magazine.
Around 1894 he knew his first success in France working for the newspaper Le Rire and magazins like L'Assiette au Beurre and Le Chat Noir.
At the turn of the century, Rabier was an established artist. He began to produce more albums and illustrated the tales of La Fontaine. He also wrote theatre plays and did book illustrations.
He also worked in the advertising field. For example, he developed the famous cow logo of the cheese brand La Vache Qui Rit. In 1923 he created 'Gédéon', a goose whose adventures he drew until the end of his life. Sixteen books appeared between 1923 and 1939. In 1936, he went to work for British publishers again, illustrating several small books ( ) .
