“Because the fact is that comics are not a comic medium in their own right. He can, in the eyes of his "followers", sometimes touch the most serious. If comics such as the imagination of people like Druillet appear even less comical today, it is because the naivety of young people, the innocence of their dreams are dwindling. »
From Lone Sloane to Xcalibur, from Pilot to Associated Humanoids, from drawing to 3D, from sheet of paper to film sets, Philippe Druillet (born in Toulouse in 1944) knew how to impose his universe and open a new path to the "9th art ”. His contribution to the revival of composition and the redefinition of cutting, from the first boards he produced in the late 1960s, deeply nourished and changed the world of comics, but also that of illustration, cinema and video games. He is a unique author who will guide Jean Giraud in the evolution of his alias Moebius and Georges Lucas in the graphic design of Star Wars. A pioneer artist, he is a staple of our visual universe. A true comic book genius and mythical figure in the universe of Science Fiction, he is still today an inexhaustible source of inspiration and a major influence for entire generations.
