Born in Paris, Jean-Pierre Gibrat studied philosophy, publicity art and plastic art, before making the switch to comics in the second half of the 1970s.  He published his first short stories in Pilote, and these were also collected in the 1980 album ‘Visions Futées’ by Dargaud. With Jackie Berroyer, he created ‘Goudard’ in B.D. in 1978.  Gibrat did commission work, and drew for publications like L’Ordinateur de Poche, Sciences et Avenir and Je Bouquine. Again with Berroyer, he created ‘La Parisienne’ for Pilote in 1982, a character that was later implemented in new episodes of ‘Goudard’.  In 1995, Gibrat made ‘Pinocchia’, an erotic female version of Collodi’s famous character, written by Francis Leroi and published in L’Écho des Savanes.

About aritter2014

I am a Librarian. To be honest, I wouldn't want to do anything else. I have a strong background in architecture, computer technology, English literature, Internet applications, web site design, film studies and modern art. I would like to use this page to express my personal musings and experiences on news, pop culture, nature, art, science, technology and what ever becomes a curiosity.
