Eric Loutte studied Pastic Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts, where he learned the finer points of the comics profession from Vittorio Leonardo. Like many of his contemporaries, Loutte began his professional career in the advertising field. His first exploit in comics came in 1987, when he assisted René Follet and Christian Denayer on respectively the 'Edmund Bell' and 'Les Casseurs' series. He then began working on projects of his own, such as 'Les Poisons de Mars', an adaptation of work by Asimov. Loutte then got the opportunity to take over the 'Biggles' series from Francis Bergèse, in which he showed to be a talented artist of aviation comics. Loutte is additionally a contributor to the French magazine Le Fana de l'Aviation.
