About Christian Lamquet
Belgian science fiction artist Chris Lamquet was born in Andenne, and began his career in the studio of Edouard Aidans in 1974. He assisted Aidans on his series for magazines like Tintin, Vers l'Avenir and Pif Gadget, while also illustrating game pages for Zappy monthly.
He left the studios in 1978, took on a more realistic style and created 'Louvenn' in Tremplin.
Starting in 1980, he worked for Spirou with a new version of 'Louvenn', several short stories and the science fiction series 'Quasar' (1982-87). He subsequently began a collaboration with Salmon, with whom he created the albums 'La Phase Végétale' and 'Norfolk' for Editions du Miroir. In the 1990s, Lamquet made independent stories like 'Tropique des Étoiles' (Hélyode, 1991) and 'L'Amour Hologramme' (in À Suivre, 1991), and also made appearances in Brazil magazine ('Sipridine et ADN' and 'Les Abberants') and the Japanese review Morning ('Adeleen & Dob's').
In 1999, he created the first volume of 'Le Pithécanthrope dans la Valise' for the collection Gráfica of Glénat. He subsequently made 'Alvin Norge' which was published in the collection Troisième Vague at Le Lombard between 2000 and 2005. Lamquet then teamed up with writer Richard Marazano to create 'Blue Space' for Glénat's Grafica collection and 'Eco Warriors' for 12bis. In 2011 he took over the artwork of 'Alpha' from Youri Jigounov
