A man of diverse talents, Normand Hudon initially made his mark with a large segment of the public by ingeniously taking visual gibes at society, notably through cartoons published in a multitude of weeklies, periodicals and dailies such as Le Devoir and La Presse. Alongside these activities, having studied the arts in Montreal and Paris, Hudon also paints. From as early as 1947, his works are regularly exhibited in Quebec, Canada and France. He is also commissioned to create four ceiling panels for the Energy Pavilion at Expo 67. He later publishes a humoristic monthly magazine and founds the Normand-Hudon Academy which provides correspondence courses in drawing techniques.
