La Compagnie des Cochons by Arnaud Floch
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.

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.
