A little info on the artist

Allan Barte is a writer and cartoonist born in 1978 of a Vietnamese father and mother from Brittany.

He first headed towards law studies which allowed him to obtain a Master in political communication. However he did not lose sight of his lifelong passion : creating comic strips. In 2005, he created his blog Life brownie that quickly grasped the attention of Lewis Trondheim. Lewis signed him up in his collection at Delcourt Shampoo. Two albums would result from their collaboration.

Subsequently, he worked in the Spirou magazine, then the echo of savannas. He also wrote several episodes of a cartoon adapted from the comic strip ( UFO & Nini Patalo ).
