Philippe Coudray, born in Bordeaux, began his career in 1989 in the magazine Psikopat. He made most of his comics in collaboration with his brother and scenario writer, Jean-Luc Coudray. Together they created the 'Drôles' collection, which contains several works, including 'Drôles de Manchots,' 'Drôles de Chats,' and 'Drôles de Sangliers'. Another comic the two brothers have made was 'Théocrite,' of which two issues appeared from 1991 to 1993. On his own, Philippe Coudray has created four albums of the children's series 'L'Ours Barnabé.' Coudray's work has also appeared in the magazines Fripounet and Perlin. In 2000, l'Association published his album 'Loin de Tout,' which contained surreal gags that originally appeared in Psikopat.
