Jochen Gerner studied fine arts in Nancy from 1988 to 1993. After his studies, he began illustrating and published some pages in the collective album Périphéries (L'Association). His first comic was published by L'Association in the collection Patte de Mouche: Bo—te de Vitesse et Viande en Bo—te. His comics were also published in Les Inrockuptibles, Lapin, and Fusée. Since then he has published widely. In addition to comics, Gerner publishes illustrations in magazines and newspapers, including Libération, Le Monde, and the New York Times, and in children's books.
