Axelle Lenoir started out as a 2D artist in 1999, for a Quebec City video game company. In 2003, wanting to escape the large production teams in order to get more creative freedom (and because she's a kind of a control freak), she quit and made her first steps in comic books. The Switzerland publisher Paquet published the Mertownville trilogy in the mid-2000s. Since then, Axelle's works were edited by French, Belgian and Canadian publishers. Her most recent series, Camp Spirit (Lounak Books and Top Shelf), is a coming-of-age story about an unlikely friendship between Catherine and Elodie, two summer camp counselors. Axelle's writing style is a mix between humor, everyday life situations, fantasy and comic strips. She likes to write about women, teenagers, folklore, parallel universes and stupid cats.
