Artist Profile


Born in 1983, Sylvie-Anne Ménard (or Zviane) was destined for a career as a music teacher, but rather became a comic book author. She started exploring comics with self-published stories, before creating a popular blog. Her books are now published by various editors, including Pow Pow, Delcourt, Mécanique générale and La Pastèque. Over the years, she has won multiple awards for her work, including for Apnée (Grand Prix de la Ville de Québec 2010), Les Deuxièmes (Grand Prix de la Ville de Québec 2013 and Joe Shuster Award) and Le bestiaire des fruits (Price Independent Bédélys). She spends her time today working on her self-published comics magazine (La jungle), teaching at the University of Quebec in Outaouais, creating animated films or doing music with children and songs with her ukulele.
