"The next 8 pages are what I came up with when a buddy of mine asked me to participate to a fanzine he was starting. The fanzine is called "cyprine" and the theme of the issue was "le minotaure intĂŠrieur", the inside minotaur or something. At first I tried to escape my usual way of drawing. I tried and tried. But hey, you know the old saying "old habits die hard." So I ended up doing pages with my regular style. The story was inspired to me by waiting for the moon, a song from the eponymous album of the tindersticks. I used that same title for my little tale. Enjoy!"

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 two series. Basket dunk and une bien belle nuance de rouge, a personal project. he hopes you will enjoy this selection of rarely seen drawings done between 2009 and 2010 and collected in this second issue of icon-o-clash.
