Nicolas Malfin studied physics, but eventually turned to comics. A self-taught artist, he began his career as an illustrator for roleplaying games and advertisements. He illustrated the Pirates of the Caribbean card game for Halloween Concept in 1998. Malfin's new series, Cézembre, is an historical story about WWII. A fan of uniforms, military technology, and pin-ups, Nicolas Malfin reveals in this sketchbook his private "Band of Sisters" collection, formidable warrior girls or military pinups.
