comic art by Guy Peellaert

Guy Peellaert first practiced his drawing skills as a commercial designer. He made his first comic, 'Jodelle ', in 1966. He was one of the very first comic artists to process pop-art influences in his stories, and one of the first French comic artists to made erotic comics. In late 1966, 'Pravda la Survireuse' appeared, the second and last of his real comic efforts.

Jodelle, by Guy Peellaert

At the end of the sixties and the start of the seventies, a couple of his experimental books appeared: 'Carashi!' (1969), which consisted of redesigned photos, and 'Bye, bye, bye Baby, bye, bye' (1973), which used a hyper-realistic style. He then disappeared from the comic world to work in theater and television. He made album covers for David Bowie and Rolling Stones records, and also movieposters like Paris Texas and Taxi Driver.
