Jean-Claude Floc'h is an artist who can be placed among the masters of the clear line, like Hergé and Joost Swarte. The younger brother of comics artist Jean-Louis Floch, Floc'h studied at the school of Decorative Arts in Paris and published his first story, 'Le Conservateur', scripted by Rodolphe, in Imagine in 1975. In 1977, he created the character of 'Sir Francis Albany' in Pilote, in cooperation with François Rivière. A year later, Floc'h and Rivière additionally created the independent story 'Blitz' in Le Matin de Paris. In 1985, 'Un Homme dans la Foulle' appeared, a collection of his advertising artwork.
Floc'h teamed up with Jean-Luc Fromental in the mid-1980s and created albums like 'Ma Vie', 'High Life' and 'Var, le Département dont vous êtes le Heros'. In 1991, Floc'h and Fromental produced 'Jamais Deux sans Trois' in L'Écho des Savanes. A year later, Floc'h reunited with Rivière to make the 'À Propos de Francis', a text that opened with a telegram that declared the death of Sir Francis Albany. In 1994 he did two small books called 'Journal d'un New Yorkais' and 'Meurtre et Miniature'. Again with Rivière, he created 'Fausse Alerte', the second episode of 'Blitz' in 1996.
