Yoann grew up in Normandy, France, and was attracted to nature and drawing from an early age. He studied the fine arts before becoming a professional artist, adopting a style based on the use of acrylic paints. But he is also an artist capable of bold and expressive penstrokes. As original as he is prolific, Yoann has gained the attention of numerous scriptwriters over the years, including Vehlmann, Yann, Trondheim, and Sfar. After completing a successful volume of Spirou & Fantasio with Vehlmann, he returned to adventure comics recently with the (literally) out-of-this-world Captainz (Le Lombard; Europe Comics in English).
