Psychoses Toujours, by Lucques

Self-taught artist Lucques saw his first illustrations published in Lui in 1969. That same year, he commenced working for Pilote, making some current-affairs pages as well as the series 'Lucquarnes' (1971-72). Additionally, he did articles and drawings for Privé and Kesselring published his first humour book, 'Le Petit Enlucqué' in 1974. He helped launch Mormoil, and contributed the strip 'Freudaines' to the magazine.

In the mid-1970s, he started working for the magazines l'Écho des Savanes and Fluide Glacial. His stories 'Le Tombeur de Haut' and 'Goldorette', both from L'Écho, were collected in albums by Editions du Fromage and Albin Michel. For Fluide Glacial, he created the series 'Clitounet et Clitounette' and 'Wilbur, l'Indocible Heureux', as well as a relaunch of 'Freudaines', most of which were also collected in books (Audie, Le Cygne).

In 1981, he started publishing his own work, like 'Les Fadas du Zizi' (1981), 'Les Dragueurs' (1982), 'Je Vous Aime' (1982), and the comical erotic 'Encyclopédie Aphrodisiaque' (two volumes under the pseudonym Ian Gallix, 1983). In addition, he did commisions (the book 'Méga-Planning' for Publiart) and the book 'Ralentir, Zone Érogène' for Glénat in 1986. Lucques eventually settled in Miami, Florida, where he works for local magazines and papers.

Lucques made a graphic contribution to Marion Vidal's 'Monsieur Schulz et ses Peanuts’ (Albin Michel, 1976), an essay about Charles M. Schulz'’ 'Peanuts’, illustrated with subversive parodies of the comic, that Schulz unsuccessfully tried to sue. He was one of several artists to make a graphic contribution to ‘Pepperland’ (1980), a collective comic book tribute to the store Pepperland, to celebrate its 10th anniversary at the time. He was one of several artists to make a graphic contribution to 'Baston Labaffe no. 5: La Ballade des Baffes’ (Goupil, 1983), an official collective parody comic of  André Franquin’s 'Gaston Lagaffe’. Lucques scripted a short comic for the collective comic book 'Allez Coucher, Sales Bêtes' (Dupuis, 1991), illustrated by René Hausman
