Marivaudevilles by Martin Veyron

Martin Veyron is a French comic artist, who is known for his semi-realistic erotic comics that are characterized by their witty dialogues and situations that get out of hand. He was born in Dax and studied Art Deco in Paris. He founded the Imaginon studios with Jean-Claude Denis and Caroline Dillard in 1975, and made his first illustrations for magazines like L'Expansion, Lui and Cosmopolitan. He made his debut as a comic artist with the creation of 'Bernard Lermite' in L'Écho des Savanes in 1977.

Veyron's first books were published by Les Éditions du Fromage, but he transferred to Dargaud in 1982. He additionally wrote the scripts of 'Edmond le Cochon' for Jean-Marc Rochette and of 'Oncle Ernest et les Ravis' for Jean-Claude Denis (Casterman, 1978). His humorous love serial 'L'Amour Propre' was published in L'Écho des Savanes in 1982, and made into a TV series in 1985.

After his move to Dargaud, he continued 'Bernard Lermite' in Pilote. He also created 'Olivier Désormeaux' for this magazine under the pen name Richard de Muzillac, that was drawn by Diego de Soria. He also expanded his activities as a press illustrator for magazines like Libération, Paris-Match, Le Nouvel Observateur and L'Événement du Jeudi. He became the regular illustrator of InfoMatin in 1994, and wrote a novel called 'Tremolo Corazon' in 1996.

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. 

New comic albums were 'Cru Bourgeois' (1998) and 'Caca Rente' (2000), both published by Albin Michel. He revived his 1980s love serial with 'Blessure d'amour propre' at Dargaud in 2009. In the following year, he created the sex comedy 'Marivaudevilles' with the same publisher.
