Marcel Jeanjean was a reconnaissance pilot in World War I, he always had his notebook with him to sketch his crew and the airplanes during his travels. Later he published his sketches in the illustrated book „Sous le Cocardes“ (1919). His career as an illustrator started in the humoristic magazine “The Hairy Duck”, later on he was appointed as "Illustrator for the aviation Department". His passion for aeronautics and airplanes is reflected through his work mostly in a humoristic fashion.
