Biography

 

Born on August 28th in Toulouse, Ibi has a degree from the fine arts school of Toulon. Truly keen on comics and Manga but too shy to show his talent to the author he admires, he meets the Anachronique fanzine at the comic strip festival of Aix-en-Provence in 2006. In order to improve his drawing skill, Ibi subscribe to the Zarmatelier in 2008, a workshop for comic books authors in Marseille.
In 2011 he takes part in the first contest organizes by Amilova's website and presents his seminal work, Lapin et Tortue (Rabbit and Turtle). This series of short stories tells the misadventures of some Kawaii characters and counts many references to fairy tales, films, cartoons and video games.
Chosen by both the public and the jury, Ibi win the first prize which enables him to publish his first album which will be presented in exclusivity at Japan Expo at Amilova booth.
