Photographer's Note

Two day ago I was in Ostend for do business, but I have quick a few picture taken along the beach.
I saw there one of my cartoons heros "Kuifje en Bobby" in dutch, "Tintin et Milou" en français, "Tinti and Snowy" in English.
I like very a lot of comic book, certainly of our Belgish draftsmans.

I hope you like it.

I found this information in the Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Tintin debuted on January 10, 1929, and his 75th birthday was widely celebrated in 2004. Tintin was largely based on Hergé's earlier character, a chubby boy-scout named Totor. The comics starring Totor, Les aventures de Totor, chef de patrouille des Hannetons, appeared in the magazine Le Boy-Scout Belge between 1926 and 1929.

In the later comic book series, Tintin is a young reporter who is drawn to dangerous international intrigues in which his quick thinking and bravery save the day. Almost every adventure features Tintin engaging in some kind of sleuthing or investigation, but rarely does he actually turn in a story. Although the strip was Belgian, Hergé was inconsistent or vague about assigning Tintin a nationality, depicting him instead as broadly European. In some of the earliest books, like Tintin in the Congo, a Belgian identity is fairly explicit. In later adventures, as with other aspects of his character's history and family, Tintin's nationality is simply never brought up.
