Pierre-Yves Comtois is an illustration and animation artist born in Rouyn-Noranda, Abitibi-Témiscamingue. He started drawing very early to tell his own stories. The desire to be useful and to beautify this world led him to become a special educator and then a horticulturist. He wrote for magazines, for the Montreal Botanical Garden and for the Web. And for a few decades, his drawings remained confined to the margins. To get back to it, he enrolled in animation at the Cégep du Vieux Montréal and became a layout artist. There he rediscovered his fascination for the creation of universes.
