Artist Profile

Philippe Girard

Born in Quebec City, Philippe Girard (aka PhlppGrrd) started drawing comics in 1997 in a student newspapers and soon created the fanzine Tabasko!, with authors Leif Tande and Djief. In 1999, he joined forces with several authors concerned with creating a new Quebec comic culture and established a new publishing structure, Mécanique générale. Over the years, his bibliography has grown to about twenty comic books in French, in English and Russian, as well as six youth novels and one adult novel.
With a style that touches humor and introspection, and a characteristic drawing close to the ligne claire movement, his work addresses several recurring themes, including death and the idea of identity. Over the years, his books have won him various awards in Quebec, Canada, Serbia and Japan. His latest book, Le Couperet, was published by Mécanique générale in Spring 2017.
