Mauricet

was born in 1967. He always knew that he’d become a comic book artist. He had the chance to learn the basics of the craft with eddy paape. at twenty, he started working for Spirou magazine, drawing hundreds of cartoons and co-creating the series cosmic patrouille, a superhero parody, among other things. a fan of american comics, he fulfilled his dream of working for them when he was asked to draw a set of batman illustrations and some superman pages for dc. He also drew a tellos tale for image and the crossovers for crossgen comics. for casterman he co-created the series mort de trouille. He penciled a mademoiselle louise album for éditions dupuis. he’s now busy working for bamboo éditions on three series. Basket dunk, cosmic patrouille and garance, a personal project. he hopes you will enjoy this selection of rarely seen drawings done between 2006 and 2009 and collected in this first issue of icon-o-clash.
