Henri Lievens is a Belgian painter mainly active as an illustrator. He trained at the Royal Academy of fine arts in Antwerp.
At age 26, in 1946, he illustrated a book by K.C. Peeters, Eigen Aard for the Editions of Vlijdt, a book which gave him some fame. Henri Lievens entered the studio of the editions Marabout in Verviers in 1955 and there has made more than 200 covers, interior illustrations and photo montages. He was mainly in charge of the cover illustrations for the collections ‘Marabout Fantastique’ and ‘Marabout Science Fiction’. He also created covers for some Perry Rhodan albums, as well as many illustrations inside Bob Morane, Doc Savage and some Marabout Flash albums, for which he also created the cover designs. Between 1960 and 1964, he created the covers for the first six Bob Morane comic strip albums, written by Henri Vernes and illustrated by Dino Attanasio. Lievens spent much of his career at Marabout in the shadow of Pierre Joubert, who worked for the same publisher and whose work earned more respect and recognition than his own. When Joubert left Editions Marabout in 1972, Lievens was tasked with touching up Joubert’s illustrations for Bob Morane, to make the hero look like the actor Claude Titre. He subsequently replaced Pierre Joubert and continued to produce the covers for Bob Morane comics. The collection’s name later changed from Marabout Junior to Pocket Marabout. The inside illustrations disappeared with this change.
Henri Lievens left editions Marabout in 1977.
He received the Special Prize at the third European Convention of Science-Fiction in Poznań, Poland in August 1976.
In 1980, Henri Lievens returned to his first publisher, Editions de Vlijdt, to illustrate a book on Belgian tales.
