Jean-Marie Derscheid 1955-2020

On November 19, 2020, the belgian comic gallery owner and publisher Jean-Marie Derscheid died at the age of 65. In the BDFIL brochure of this year, you can read an ‘In Memoriam’ by BDFIL director Dominique Radrizzani, illustrated with this small drawing by Cosey.

Derscheid pioneered with expositions of the works of comic artists, like Hugo Pratt, Moebius, Jacques Tardi et many others – both in his own gallery Ziggourat in Brussels as at several comics festivals. One of these festivals was the BDFIL in Lausanne, for which he organised the exposition of Cosey works, ‘Les lueuers du Monde’, in 2007.

This is the third post in a row with ‘In memory’ drawings by Cosey – I hope to have happier news in the near future…
