La Compagnie des Cochons
Born in Brittany, Arnaud Floc'h spent his childhood in Cameroon and Niger until he returned to Brest at age 16. In 1984 he settled in Paris to pursue a career as an artist. Although he started out working for the Ministry of Housing, he made his first illustrations for their publications. He then illustrated an encyclopedia for Larousse before he contributed short stories to two collective books by publisher Glénat, using the pseudonym Arnaud Fontaine. He opened up his own advertising studio in Montargis in 1988 and eventually headed for Africa once again. Since 1998, he has done illustration work for Éditions Triskel.
Floc'h has worked with Thomas Priou on 'Chat s'en va' and 'Chat Revient', with Yves Pinguily on 'Zalissa et Yamba', 'Sous l'Arbre à Palabres' and 'L'Esclave du Fleuve des Fleurves'. In 2004 he worked as a scriptwriter with Jean-Louis Floch (no relation) on 'Le Camion des Yeux' with BFB Éditions. He is the author of one-shots like 'Xavier, un Film entre nous' (Ed. Carabas, 2007), 'Le Poission-Chat' (artwork by Thierry Murat, Ed. Delcourt, 2008) and 'La Compagnie des Cochons' (Ed. Delcourt, 2009). In 2008 he also started his series 'Les Épines du Christ' for Editions Carabas. He is the initiator of the Montargis comics festival.
