DOM — a.k.a Dominique — PELLETIER started drawing cartoons at a young age and has never put his crayons down, even while studying graphic communications at Laval University in Quebec City. A lover of the great outdoors, he has planted trees and traveled the world before starting to work as a video game designer. After a fateful meeting at the Quebec Book Fair, Dom teamed up with Éditions Scholastic on their bestselling joke book series. Fifty very funny books later, he has translated his joke book success into the hilarious graphic novel series The Lunch Club (Les timbrés). He lives with his wife, 2 kids, 5 chickens, 2 sheep, 2 poneys and a fluctuating number of dogs in Saint-Liboire, Quebec. Facebook page :
