Noë Monin is a French illustrator born on April 19, 1983. He spent his childhood in Finistère, Brittany. Fascinated by comics from an early age, he started attending classes run by Gwen Le Rest at the age of 11, thereby gaining valuable insight into the work of Fournier and Janry, and later Loisel and Toriyama, who were to become his main influences, along with Glen Keane and Otomo. After graduating with an Arts degree from the University of Rennes, Carabas published his first album, Venezia, written by Laurent Koffel. He tried his hand at the manga format with Yodji, before returning to the Franco-Belgian comic format with adaptations of animated series such as Baskup Tony Parker and The Jungle Book. His hybrid and dynamic drawing style also allowed him to work in the field of video games, at Riot Games, Ankama, and Acute Games. In 2016, he returned to comics with his first complete series Les Lames d'Âpretagne, published by Casterman--a fantasy series adapted from his webcomic Holà Tavernier, which he had been working on since 2011 with Luc Venries and Yoann Courric. After working with Le Lombard, on the adaptation of Marblegen, Dupuis asked him to illustrate Cinq Avril, the first original series by Michel Bussi, co-written by Fred Duval. Adventures, history, capes, and swords, this series allows the Breton artist to fully express his narrative vision with multiple influences.
