Hergé was considered a bit of a handful as a child, by his teachers and his parents. And yet he obtained excellent results in his secondary school, Saint-Boniface in Ixelles! It is in the context of World Teachers' Day that we are publishing this little anecdote about Hergé.

School was a time when Hergé learned discipline and developed a strong desire always to improve himself. In his last year at school he was regularly getting over 80% in his marks... although funnily enough his marks for art were not so good!

But what did it matter? Hergé's pencil and notebook were his tools of choice and they accompanied him wherever he went. Drawing was his way of expression and it soon became his career, despite some hesitation in the 1930s between a future in graphic design or a future in comic strips. Hergé was self-taught and never stopped learning. The illustrator was open-minded and struck up long-lasting and important friendships, such as his relationship with the Chinese student Chang Chong-chen that led him to discover a whole new world along with new artistic techniques. For his whole life Hergé took on challenges and put all his effort into elevating comic strips to the level of art. Working every day with a real concern for perfection, the author has always been a model for budding illustrators to strive after.
