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 a lot.

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 Comics
  • 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.
