Born and raised in Quebec, Rogé studied graphic design at Laval University. He began his career working as an art director for well-established advertising agencies. After a few years, he decided to take on a new challenge and volunteered for international cooperation projects. In the course of a three-month stay in the Dominican Republic, he painted large murals in a village and the experience gave him a new sense of direction. Upon his return, he settled in Montreal and decided to take on illustration on a full-time basis. His pictures have been seen on many ad campaigns, posters and magazines and in many children’s picture books. In 2006, he won the Governor’s General Literary Award, the most prestigious award in Canada, for his children’s book, Taming Horrible Harry.
