Biography

Who is "Yack"?

Jacques Bossé was born in the Nantes region. His main job is as a fire-fighter.

He also devotes some of his time to another of his passions: illustration.  He has become known under the pseudonym “Yack”.

Yack is a friendly personality, known for his gaiety and enthusiasm: “My work with Nouvelles Images is whizzo, a bit yahoooooooooooo and most of all a lot of fun!”

Characters and techniques

An admirer of ZEP, Gotlib and the character of Zorro, Yack has created a whole gallery of amusing characters: there’s the famous cow Loulai, of course, but also sheep, dogs, cats and pigs....and of course the little girl Sunsun.

Yack draws with a pencil and sometimes uses a graphic paint-box to colour his drawings. 

Projects

Yack is planning to bring out a comic-strip and is currently working on it.  Look out for his cookery book which is due to come out in September 2009.
