After studying architectural techniques, Pierre Larouche went to work in comics. Adapting the pseudonym Prouche, he created the first comics album with 'Electrozz et Bozz' in 1983. In the following two years, he drew two more albums with these characters. In 1988, he came up with 'Le Dessin par les Formes Géométriques'. That same year, he began a remarkable comics biography of Alphonse Desjardins in the review Ma Caisse. The completion of 'La Grande Aventure d'Alphonse Desjardins' the following year, earned him the prize of Most Promising Artist at the First Francophone Comics Festival in Quebec. In 1992, he began a series of small books called 'La Ville de Pierre Boucher', which were published by Éditions Coeur de Pomme.
