Julie Doucet

Julie Doucet was born near Montréal in 1965 and is best known for her frank, funny, and sometimes shocking comic book series Dirty Plotte (1991–’98), which changed the landscape of alternative cartooning. In the 1990s, Doucet moved between New York, Seattle, Berlin, and Montréal, publishing the graphic novels My New York Diary (1999), Lift Your Leg, My Fish is Dead! (1993), and My Most Secret Desire (1995) in this time. Following the publication of The Madame Paul Affair (2000), she quit comics to concentrate on other art forms; from these experiments emerged the collection of engravings and prints Long Time Relationship (2001), and her one-year visual journal, 365 Days (2007). Her post-comics artwork includes silkscreened artist’s books, text-based collages, and animation films.
