Petite Nature by Jean-Christophe Chauzy
Petite Nature

Jean-Christophe Chauzy worked for the rock music press during the 1980s. He also taught drawing classes at an Applied Arts school. He made his album debut in 1988 with 'Vengeance', which was published in the collection X by Futuropolis. By 1990, Chauzy had already finished two other albums, but these didn't appear due to the folding of the collection. They were eventually published under the title 'Novice' by PLG ten years later.

Chauzy continued to cooperate with Futuropolis during the early 1990s, creating 'Bayou Joey', 'Les Écorchés' and 'Sans Rancoeur'. From 1992, he was present in the magazine À Suivre. He cooperated with Matz on several short stories, that were collected in the album 'Peines Perdues' by Casterman. In 1993, he made 'J'ai Tué mon Prof' with Mosconi at the publisher Syros. In 1995, he published 'Parano' at Casterman and made 'Béton Armé' in À Suivre. He also contributed to the alternative comic magazine Ogoun!. Also for Casterman, he produced 'Le Peau de l'Ours' in 1998, and created 'Clara' with Denis Lapière between 1999 and 2002.

Chauzy and Jonquet subsequently cooperated on 'D.R.H.' (Casterman, 2004) and 'Du papier faisons table rase' (Casterman, 2006).
