Claude Pelet was born in the south of France. He attended the School of Fine Arts in Nîmes for two years in the early 1980s but is mainly a self-taught artist. He has worked in the fields of advertising and communication until 2004, when he made his first comics for the local publisher Aldacom: 'Le Gard dans l'Histoire' and 'L'Aude dans l'Histoire'.
He subsequently contributed to a couple of anthologies and worked with Laurent Vicomte on a new 'Sasmira' story in 2006 (published by Glénat in 2011). He teamed up Jean-Blaise Djian to create the series 'Le Destin des Algo-Bérang' at Glénat in 2012. He also participated in the art of the final installment in Makyo's series 'La Balade au Bout du Monde'. Claude Pelet is also a storyboard artist with the 3D animation studio Dwarfs Labs.
