About Jean-Claude Floc'h

Jean-Claude Floc'h is an comic artist and illustrator who can be placed among the masters of the Clear Line, like Hergé and Joost Swarte. The younger brother of comic artist Jean-Louis Floch, Floc'h studied at the School of Decorative Arts in Paris and started his career making press and book illustrations. He created his first comic story, 'Le Conservateur', together with Rodolphe and it was published in Imagine in 1975. He was present in Pilote from 1977, where he teamed up with scriptwriter François Rivière to create 'Le Rendez-vous de Sevenoaks'. It was the first story to feature the character of the British writers Sir Francis Albany and Olivia Sturgess. Text (c) Lambiek
