Cyril was born in 1972. An avid reader of Mickey Parade and Astérix, he was six years old when he decided to become a cartoonist. His parents were delighted but suggested that he continued his studies for a little while longer. It took him a good twenty years to gain his baccalauréat diploma in mathematics and sciences (including three extra months of maths), meet the love of his life, grow his hair long, return to art school, study animation drawing at Les Gobelins graphic and media arts school, work for Disney, get his hair cut short again and then, finally, meet David Chauvel. Working together, they first of all produced "Ring Circus", then "Les aventures spatio temporelles de Shaolin Moussaka" for Éditions Delcourt. And, having got off to such a good start, they are certainly not going to stop there. In addition to his collaborative work, Cyril writes and illustrates stories on his own, and "Les Coeurs solitaires" is the first of his solo works to be published.
