Coyote, who keeps his real identity a secret, was born in Rodez in October 1962. Before he went into comics, he was a car-painter, an engraver of tombstones and a tattoo-designer in Toulouse. At the end of the 1980's, he won a drawing contest organized by the newspaper La Dépêche du Midi. >From then on, his work could be found in several publications, most notably in motorcycle magazines and collective albums. Owning a 1943 Harley Davidson himself, he created his motorstrip, 'Mammouth et Piston', in Freeway.
In 1990, he made his debut in Fluide Glacial with the short story 'Bébert, Clochard et Philosophe'. He went on to create his most famous series, 'Litteul Kévin', which is based on his own son. Coyote draws his influences from artists like Gotlib and Maëster, and has become one of the principal artists at the famous monthly, Umour et Bandessinées. In 2004, he created 'Les Voisins', co-plotted with Nini Bombardier. That same year, he scripted 'Diego de la SPA' for Eric Cartier in Fluide Glacial. In 2005, he switched to Lombard, where he took on 'Les Voisins du 109', still in cooperation with Bombardier.
