Fabien Rypert started out as a technician, but soon he was drawn more to the graphic arts. He quit his technical studies and became an inker on 'Astérix' by Uderzo and on several Disney characters. In 1988 he became a freelancer and created the character of 'Boogy', which later developed into the children's comic 'Boogy and Rana'. The first album of this series was published in 1996, with a preface by André Franquin. Writer Brice Tarvel and Fabien Rypert received an award for their album in Angoulême in 1997. Apart from this series, Fabien Rypert does a lot of work on postcards, games and posters, and also drew the comic 'Chirac dans tous ses États', a parody about president Chirac.
