Floc'h, born in 1953 in Mayenne (northwestern France), is a prominent illustrator and comics artist and one of the main figures of the "clear line" style. After a short time spent at the National School of the Decorative Arts in Paris, he devoted himself to illustration, for the press and publishing. He got his start in comics in 1977 alongside author François Rivière, with Le Rendez-vous de Sevenoaks (Dargaud), the first episode of the series Albany & Sturgess. They would go on to develop the series over the course of several years, culminating in the release of Une trilogie anglaise (An English Trilogy, Europe Comics). The tandem also produced the Blitz trilogy, cementing their status as leading creators in their field. Floc'h is and has always been much more than a comics artist, however, putting his talents at the service of the cinema (including numerous posters for films from Alain Resnais and Woody Allen), as well as a wide variety of publications. Across the body of his work, his sleek and deft touch and overall elegance give his art a unique style that is immediately recognizable and is a testament to his immense talents.
