Artist: Claude St. Aubin Bio
I was born the fifth of six children to a French Canadian family in Matheson,
Ontario. At around five years of age I discovered the world of the "newspaper
comic strip". Love at first sight. Then when I was 10, I discovered the world
of "comic books". Unknown to me at the time these discoveries would lead
me to the exciting world of storytelling, using my little drawing talent to
choose what I wanted to do in life.
I graduated as a graphic designer. My first job search led me to a Canadian
comic book called "Captain Canuck". I decided to investigate. I left Montreal
for Winnipeg and was hired as sort of an assistant artist on the book. I learned
I met my wife Jacqueline in Calgary, and we were married in the "Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints". We were blessed with two children, a girl
and a boy, who in turn are now married. I am very blessed to have such a great
person in my life.
When "Captain Canuck" ceased publication I went back to being a graphic
designer, which was alright, but I felt miserable. After discussing my feelings
with Jacqueline, I returned to the magic world of comic books. My first project
was for DC Comics on the "Green Lantern" book. After that, I never looked back.
Here are some of the projects I have worked on - some as penciller, some as
inker, and some both:
- Jurassic Park, Xena, James Bond, Zorro, The Lone Ranger,Mars Attack, Frankenstein
vs Dracula, - Topps Comics
- Scarlet Spider a.k.a. Spiderman - Marvel Comics
- Magnus˝Robot Fighter, Punx, - Acclaim Comics
- Shi - Crusade Comics
- Justice League, Aquaman, Batman, Lobo, Green Lantern, Plastic Man, - DC
- The Victorian, Decoy, - Penny-Farthing Press
- Smoke & Mirrors - Relative Comics
At present I just started issue one of a very wholesome project which I am
not at liberty to name, but which will be published soon.
Why did I decide to work on the Fort Whoop-Up project? Simple - because of
the determination and excitement that Pete has for this very important event
in our country's history. If not for the march to Fort Whoop-Up, who knows
what Canada would be like today. Because of a very inspired decision by the
Prime Minister at the time, this march secured the founding of a great nation
from coast to coast.
I am certainly very proud to be Canadian, even more so when learning of the
great individuals who made such great sacrifices so we can enjoy what is probably
the greatest place to live on earth today.
