Laurent Lolmède was born in Figeac, and attended an advertising art school in Bordeaux and the School of Decorative Arts in Paris. While working in the advertising field, he published his own fanzine Ah!. He also kept his own comics diary, which he collected in his self-published series of 'Extraits Naturels de Carnets'. These booklets were at first only distributed among family and friends, but later on they reached a larger audience when publisher Alain Beaulet collected them in four big annuels from 1996 to 2000. Starting in 1999, La Comédie Illustré began reprinting the original 'Extraits Naturels'. In addition, Lolmède has created 'L'Artriste' for Le Simo (1994) and 'Lui contre Maua' (with Stéphane Blaquet, 1994), 'Une Brève Histoire d'Amour' (1995) and 'Le Vie Auchan' (1996) for Chacal Puant.

Series and books by Laurent Lolmède in stock in the 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.
