Pascal Girard was born in Jonquière in 1981. He began filling the margins of his notebooks with drawings from his first day of school. As he was never able to rid himself of this good habit, he naturally decided to make it his career. He received his interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts from the University of Quebec in Chicoutimi in 2004. He moved to Quebec City and currently divides his time between his illustration career and drawing comics. His first two books, Dans un cruchon and Nicolas, shared the Réal-Fillion prize at the Quebec Francophone Comics Festival in 2006.
