Pierre Bailly created the poster for Anima 2020.
He was born in Algiers in 1970 and now lives in Liège where he creates various comic books.
He first published with the writer Denis Lapière: "La Saison des anguilles" the series for children "Ludo" (with drawings by Vincent Mathy) and "Agadamgorodok".
In 2006 his partner Céline Fraipont imagined the iconic, optimistic, crazy character of "Petit Poilu" and created the stories according to the concept of a comic book without words. Emotion, empathy and wonderment are the watch-words of these 22 books, drawn by Pierre and published by Dupuis.
Their darker graphic novel, "Muret", was published with Casterman in 2014
Pierre then co-directed (with Olivier Brugnoli) 78 episodes of the animated series "Petit Poilu" inspired by the comic books. The 23rd album and the second season of the series are now in progress.
He has recently published a popular science comic book "Homo Sapiens" with the paleoanthropoligist Antoine Balzeau published by Lombard).
