Ygreck

Ygreck is a famous caricaturist and painter in Quebec, and also the author of a popular blog on which he regularly posts incisive caricatures inspired by topical events in Quebec.

The spaceflight by Guy Laliberté, the well known Quebec businessman and founder of Cirque du Soleil, was an ideal subject for the artist to tackle in a cartoon rendition of the adventure.

The drawing shows Guy Laliberté in astronaut gear alongside the Little Prince, on the Little Prince’s very own planet. The reference is deliberate: the one and only book Guy Laliberté took with him into space was Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s masterpiece, The Little Prince!
