In her blog Not Dead Yet, Judith Taylor, an 80-year old retired PA from Hertfordshire (United Kingdom), consistently writes down things she would like to live on after she’s gone. In 2006 she wrote a short account on a romance she experienced with the French cartoonist Arsène Roisin, who sadly died when he was only 32.
It’s wonderful art and a wonderful account. It confronted me with my own prejudice that older people always were old, and never had a life of their own.
I would like to learn more about this artist – the only thing I could find was a listing of issues of the French weekly Le Hérisson to which he contributed in 1952.
