comic art by Cartier

Éric Cartier describes himself as a self-taught voyeur. He made his debut in 1989 with 'La Mer à Boire' (written by De Naegelen), and, in the same year, the science-fiction story 'Caste Magnétique'. After a long stay in the United States, he illustrated James Rose's 'Tompkins Square Santera'. When in Jamaica, he created and self-produced 'Flip in Paradise'. Back in Europe, he teamed up with artist Joan and founded the International Stakhano Association. This association promotes small-press productions and organizes exhibitions.

Apart from his editorial activities, Cartier created albums like 'Tutti Frutti Music', 'Tutti Frutti Pin Up' and 'Europiccolo'. He also worked for Spirou magazine. After producing 'Drylander' for Soleil in 1999, he teamed up with Lewis Trondheim and pursued the series 'Kaput & Zösky' at Delcourt from 2002. Cartier's style is fast and colorful, and displays a definite sense of fun in his drawing.

Series en boeken door Éric Cartier op voorraad in de Lambiek Webshop:


Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
