“L'employé du Moi is a publishing house in Brussels, Belgium. It is made up of eight people who are all cartoonists. None of them are paid for the time they put into l'employé du Moi. Since 2000, l'employé du Moi has explored intimate stories and autobiographies, trying to focus more on good storytelling than just spectacular drawings. L'employé du Moi isn't afraid of any genre and publishes whatever they like.

L'employé du Moi is a French pun. It sounds like “the employee of the month” but it means "the employee of Me." In this exhibition, I invite you to discover the Me behind l'employé du Moi.”

- Max de Radiguès

Max de Radiguès is a cartoonist from Brussels, Belgium. He is an author and publisher at l’employé du Moi, and he is also the 2009-10 fellow at The Center for Cartoon Studies. Far from his hometown, he spends his time in “cold” White River Junction working on his many projects. You can read his comics every week in the belgian newspaper Le VIF Express and receive his coming-of-age minicomic l'âge dur in your mailbox every month.
