Fabrice Lebeault studied law and began his career at a notary office. At a certain point, he made a promotional comic for a radio station. He continued doing artistic assignments, and began illustrating. In 1990, he also worked in the animation field. He entered the world of comics in 1993, when he began his futuristic science-fiction series 'Horlogiom' at Delcourt. In 2004, he created the one-shot 'Le Croquemitaine' with text by Denis-Pierre Filippi in the Aire Libre collection of the publishing house Dupuis. In both 'Horlogiom' and 'Le Croquemitaine', Lebeault creates fictional and Orwell-like societies, where the heroes resemble characters of popular 19th-century serials.
