Born in 1982 in Normandy, Jonathan Garnier concentrated his studies on graphic design and comic books. Following an initial job as a print designer in video games, he joined up with publisher Ankama as a graphic designer and illustrator. He soon became an editor, and shortly thereafter editorial and artistic director of the collection Étincelle. At that point he felt an urge to give life to his own creative projects, and soon began developing comic book scripts. His first work included writing for DoggyBags (Ankama), quickly followed by a number of other projects with publishers Casterman, Glénat, and Dupuis. Most recently, Garnier teamed up with artist Johan Sacré to create Timo l’aventurier with publisher Le Lombard (Timo the Adventurer, Europe Comics). His other major recent work is  Bergères guerrières, or Warrior Shepherdesses, with his partner Amelie Flechais, who is also attending TCAF!

Jonathan attends TCAF as part of the French Government’s BD2020 Initiative, and with the support of the Embassy of France In Toronto.
