Nicolas de Crécy

After studying at the Angoulême comics art school, Nicolas De Crécy made his debut in 1987 with Bug Jargal, an adaptation of a work by Victor Hugo in collaboration with Sylvain Chomet. He then worked with the French Walt Disney Studios for two years, during which time he made the highly acclaimed comic book Foligatto, written by fellow Angoulême school artist Alexios Tjoyas. He has experimented with various styles and genres, including playful black and white Monsieur Fruit series from 1995-1996, the baroque full-color fantasy The Celestial Bibendum from 1994-2002, the pantomime comic Prosopopus in 2003 and the absurdist anthropomorphic series Salvatore from 2005-2010.
