Normand Hudon studied at the École des beaux-arts de Montréal then at the Académie de Montmartre in Paris with Fernand Léger.
From 1948 to 1958, he was a freelance cartoonist for several newspapers, including Le Photo Journal, Le Petit Journal and La Patrie à Montréal.
With Jacques Normand and Dominique Michel who made up the television universe of the time, Normand Hudon became a star - a huge star - of Quebec.
From 1958 to 1961, he worked full time for Le Devoir, where his caricatures of Maurice Duplessis, which he always portrayed accompanied by a vulture, were vitriolic.
He is also one of the official cartoonists of the most watched show of the 1960s, Les Couche-tard.
