Georges Rémi was born in Brussels, Belgium in 1907. He became interested in art at a young age and began drawing. In 1924 he began signing his drawings with the name Hergé, which stood for the French pronunciation of his initials R.G. After serving in the military, Hergé began working at a children's weekly magazine where Tintin and Snowy first appeared. Eventually these characters became the stars of a series of popular books published throughout the world. Hergé died in 1983.
