He cooperated on several merchandising projects involving Shoe, the Snorky and the Marsupilami. In 1987 André Franquin asked him to do the artwork of the solo adventures of 'Le Marsupilami'. He has illustrated stories with Franquin's long tailed animal since, working together with Franquin himself and several scenarists, such as Greg, Yann, Fauche, Éric Adam and Dugomier.
