    Joël Jurion is a French comic book artist born in 1975. He started his artistic career in 1999 and by a chance meeting with Thierry Cailleteau at Normandiebulle festival, Jurion was asked to illustrate Cailleteau’s upcoming project, Anachron. Starting in 2001, the series went on for six years and was very successful. Straight after, Jurion was snapped up for a new series, Les Démons de Dunwich, written by Steve Baker.

    2013 saw the culmination of Jurion’s partnership with prolific writer, Antoine Ozenam, and colourist Yoann Guillé in the form of Klaw. Published in French by Le Lombard, Klaw’s first arc was broken down into five books. The series has been very popular is ongoing. In fact, earlier this year Magnetic Press Announced it is publishing an English-translated collected edition of Klaw, set for release in April 2016.

    You can find more of Joël Jurion’s work on DeviantArt. He even has some process videos on YouTube. A word of warning, Jurion’s illustrations are on the risqué side.
