After "Rabbi's Cat", Joann Sfar draws refuge dogs to allow their adoption

French novelist, illustrator, comic book author and successful director, added a new string to his bow: defender of the animal cause. Armed with his pencils, he has recently flown to the rescue of the dogs of the Gennevilliers SPA.

He began by celebrating the cat. Now Joann Sfar swaps his flagship animal for the best friend of man. Professor at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he went to the premises of the SPA Gennevilliers with his students. The purpose of this excursion? Lay down on paper the tragic stories of refuge dogs in order to react and facilitate their adoption .

Ten sketches were born, accompanied by the artist's legendary phrasing and melancholy phrasing:

1. Fito is waiting for his masters at the SPA
