It seems very appropriate to segue from Herbert Roese to Jimmy Beaulieu, whose drawings reflect a similar admiration of of young women. Since Jimmy writes in French, I've added a couple of links in English as well.
Finally, here are a series of photos taken of him by colleague Andy Bleck dedicating one of his books at the
Angouleme Cartoon Festival of 2006. Jimmy Beaulieu was born in L'ille d'Orléans, Quebec, in 1974.

Since we have so many viewers from all over the world, I will dispense with comments except to say that I am a great admirer of Jimmy's work and with these uploads hope to bring full circle my 100 years of illustration.
These last two images are from watercolors made of an idyllic trip to Nassau in the Bahamas. More to come with the next upload. Click on the images to enlarge them.
