Today, he divides his time between books, comics and collaborations with various magazines.
Eric Boschman is a world-famous Belgian sommelier and humorist.
« Performances : "Neither god nor master but red": a one-wine show about the vines and wines of the world. Drastically impertinent, an improvised teacher, he crosses the great History, and takes us through the vineyards of Greece to Lebanon, from Chile to Argentina and Europe. And from trip to trip, he puts us head over heels and intoxicates us with anecdotes as much as with this nectar that has accompanied our lives for thousands of years. As a passionate man, Eric Boschman shares his "gay knowledge" in the manner of a modern Rabelais, with a lot of wit and a certain irreverence. "The Beer Age": the show that foams. In November 2021, he will perform his show on wines at the Profond'ément Drôle Festival, a comedy festival in Profondeville (Namur). »

In 2018 and 2021, the triennial Grand Prix for Children's Literature of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation was awarded to the author and illustrator Thomas Lavachery for the whole of his work. A work that is both protean and coherent, where we meet friendly trolls, wacky monkeys, stunted dragons, emboldened warriors and a green family. News: recent release of the novel "The Circle": finally free of obligations and the judgement of others, a retired man begins a new life that he hopes will be rich in bicycle explorations and encounters. »
