Crudo Filete (Zine Zag #9)
Philippe Girard drew his first comic at age 8. This page was in fact published in the juvenile magazine Je Me Petit Debrouille. He drew for several school papers and won a caricature contest in 1986. Afterwards, he began drawing for the magazine Bambou. He created the children's comic 'Le Secret des Nuages' and cooperated on L'Éclosion. He graduated from the University of Laval in communication graphics in 1993 and went to work in infographics. In 1997, he founded the monthly fanzine Tabasko! with Jean-François Bergeron (Djief) and Éric Asselin. His comics also appeared in Le Prisme, La Graphe, Zine Zag, Doigt dans l'Oeil and Avons-nous les Bons Pneus?. His main character is 'Jim le Malingre', of which several album collections have appeared; at first self-published, then by Zone Convective.
