40 days Dans le Desert - Drawings by Moebius (Jean Giraud)

Illustrations of Phillipe Druillet

Durillet (1944- )is a French Comic Artist and Creator. Famous for illustrations like Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' and ' Salammbo' (The work above). As you can see his artworks have a Dark, more 'Lovecraft' and 'Macabre' Inclinations.

More about him Here. A Photostream of the 'Dracula' works Here. A Chronology of his works.

Drawings of Enki Bilal

Though Born in Yugoslavia, Bilal moved to Paris at the age of 9, therefore counted as French. He is a Comic artist, and a Movie Director.

Knowing just this given text, you will instantly notice a more cinematic approach in his illustrations, weather for the Stories he write or illustrate in or the 'Affiches' (or the Movie Posters) he does, you can notice that he automatically Mixes his Art and Cinematic skills.

(P.S. You can see such approach in the works of short lived but eternal works of Egyptian Artist and Director Shady Abdel-Salam)

Jacques Tardi
Stated to have a more Hegre style, He has a more Caricaturist approach unlike the previously mentioned artists. He has comics written in French, English and Greek.

'Tintin' par Hegre

Hegre's orginial name is Georges Remi (1907- 1983) is Belgian.
Briefly if you have grown up in the Egyptian 90's then you must have crossed by the Worldwide Known Tintin comics, originally in french but we read it in Arabic, and I read it later in Eng. and French... I believe if there's Oompa Loompa Language Tintin will be there too :)
