Voutch tops annual list of highest-paid cartoonists

In 2022 it looked like the cartoonist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (July 12) that Voutch is the highest-paid cartoonist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between June 2023 and June 2024, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The French cartoonist has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Voutch Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Courbevoie Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondervoutch - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Voutch) and a fashion line called “Voutch Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Voutch fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
