André Juillard (born in 1948) is a French scriptwriter and comic strip artist.

In 2000 he began drawing  Blake and Mortimer.

About the book:

In 2006, André Julliard showed us another facet of himself with the publication of Entracte: a biography in pictures, illustrating the process of drawing his comic strips, as well as previously unpublished sketches and drafts that he drew only for his own pleasure.

Since then, the number of "free drawings" has soared! Devoting himself totally to this exercise which, he admits, is as indispensable to him as breathing, Juillard has filled dozens of notebooks with vibrant sketches, sometimes enhanced with colour, mostly representing female nudes. We  find his heroines: Ariane, Louise, Eve... and other inspirations: photographers, painters, illustrators, or colleagues and friends...

Asked by French National Radio, André Juillard is shows us in a video where he drew Carnets Secrets.
