Alex Alice is a French comic book author and artist, working in France and occasionally in the United States. Born in 1974, he grew up in the south of France and had the good fortune to travel throughout Europe, where he developed a passion for the ruins and castles of the medieval and romantic ages. This passion has permeated his art, from the sinister medieval setting of the esoteric thriller Le Troisième Testament (1997-2003, co-written with Xavier Dorison) to the primitive, mythical world of Siegfried (2007-2011), an operatic retelling of the Norse saga of the famous dragon slayer. His interests range from film and animation to painting and illustration (he has received two Spectrum Fantastic Art awards for his covers), fine art and sculpture. He exhibited Siegfried pieces with French sculptor Christophe Charbonnel in 2015. His Siegfried was also produced as a video performance set to Wagner’s music performed by the Orchestre National de Lyon.

His current series is his most personal work to date. In The Castle in the Stars, he draws inspiration from Jules Verne and 19th-century romanticism to create a world of adventure and wonder in watercolor that will enchant adults and young readers alike. A special exhibition on the series was produced in 2017 by the Angoulême International Comics Festival, featuring 70 pieces of original art as well as costumes, props and models. It was followed by two solo exhibitions at Galerie Maghen in Paris (in 2018 and 2020). His works have been translated into 19 languages.

Cosmopolitan, born in Brussels in 1959, of French-Swiss nationality, I am a biologist by training and self-taught in drawing and comics. I started as a freelance cartoonist during my biology studies. In the early 1980s, the discovery of the great masters of comics and the meeting of the new generation led me to try my luck in this field while leading a scientific career in parallel. This career, and the associated travels, took over and occupied me until the 2010’s, period during which the birth of my children led me to settle down. In 2018, my daughter Swann, left a book lying around whose title caught my eye: “The Story of a Seagull and the Cat Who Taught Her to Fly”. I read it in less than an hour and the magic happened. I “saw” this book in comics. Not knowing the author, Luis Sepulveda, nor his reputation, I said to myself that it was the occasion to start drawing again. Some research on the internet allowed me to contact Luis who, after seeing some sketches, accepted that I adapt his book. The unfailing help and support of Anne-Marie Métailié, the advice of Louis-Antoine Dujardin and the welcome of Jean-Christophe Caurette did the rest…

“I have always had a love for sketches. I’d be lying if I said some of that didn’t stem from impatience, but it’s also the freshness of the marks and the artist’s hand that is so evident in the choices. What to show, what to hide and what to imply just enough to let the viewer’s imagination find its own path. That’s what has always fascinated me. Even with artists whose finished work I love, I make an effort to seek out their sketches and doodles. Insights into how they solve problems and build worlds. […] And so I hope you enjoy the little journeys and the epic adventures penciled and inked and painted within this collection. And I hope they might inspire you to seek adventures of your own.”

Born in Annecy, France in 1988, Julie Mellan has been drawing every day since she could hold a pencil. She spent her childhood fascinated by the animals in the Disney and Beatrix Potter classics; then, at the dawn of adolescence, by the characters in Blacksad (Juan Díaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido, published by Dargaud). Her career would undoubtedly be artistic, but between illustration and animated films, her heart swayed…
After passing her baccalauréat in literature, she studied academic drawing, illustration and animation at the Émile Cohl school in Lyon. When it came to choosing her speciality, she was more attracted by the feel of paper than to computer screens, and finally opted for publishing.

For almost ten years, she has published numerous children’s books in France and abroad, notably with Penguin Random House (The Last Rabbit), Lire c’est partir (La Moufle), MK Kids Books (Tizzy Throws a Fizzy) and Fleurus Mame (Les belles histoires de grand-mère).

Loyal to her brushes and traditional techniques, she loves to use watercolors to depict tender, mischievous animals. Drawing her inspiration from her two little boys, Julie seeks to bring a certain narrative, to suggest an emotion, a trait or an attitude characteristic of childhood in each of her illustrations.

Born in 1949 in Chile, Luis Sepúlveda is a renowned writer. Ex-footballer and activist for many political and ecological causes, he made the choice of writing. Throughout his work, we find themes such as the repression of dictatorships, the harms of pollution and values such as tolerance. After asserting his support for President Allende in the 1960s, he was imprisoned for more than two years under Pinochet’s dictatorship. Since then, Luis Sepúlveda has been involved in various struggles within global organizations (Greenpeace, International Federation for Human Rights, UNESCO programme, etc.) and journalistic institutions (The diplomatic world – chilean edition). Through these works, he expresses this need for freedom.

His first novel, The Old Man Who Read Love Novels, was a huge success that placed him among the international writers (with more than one million copies sold worldwide).In 1996, he told The Story of A Seagull and The Cat Who Taught Her To Flyin youth literature, which promotes values of tolerance and criticizes mass pollution.The award-winning book was adapted into an animated film a few years later.
