Cartoonist Bernard Verlhac, who drew under the name Tignous, was born in Paris in 1957 and published his first works in 1980. He was a member of a group of artists called Cartoonists for Peace and also belonged to the Association de la Presse Judiciaire, an association of French journalists covering the courts. He sent his last drawing — a self-portrait wishing Happy New Year — to the association the night before his death. It was posted on the group's website on the day of the shooting.
