BIO (EN)

The picture above shows Finzo’s grand-grand-uncle, Stanislas Martin, during the award ceremony of the whiskers contest organized by the Friendly of Hunting Shacks Elders Decorators, in Creuse (a small deserted french area), in the year 1894. Unfortunately, his mustache was fake and Stanislas was shot at dawn. Probably to avenge his forefather, Finzo became author and illustrator.
He first furbished his weapons by executing a lot of press cartoons and some books for children in Paris in the 90s. Until 2000, then he went at the nascent multimedia fiercely, by making edutaining CD-Roms - as they said in those days. In 1998 was the big move toward the east front, to form the shock troops of young illustrators, in Strasbourg. Since 2003, he changed his side to music and created several musical shows as a song-writer and performer, as well as drawing-concerts with his students. Recently, Finzo took over the illustrated book with the children album Au fait.
