Daniel Lafrance

Born in Hull, Quebec, Daniel Lafrance now lives in Toronto with his wife and teenage son. He has made his career as a professional storyboard artist working in animation and films. Daniel never attended art school or animation school. He started in animation as an apprentice in 1985 and worked until 2002 as an animator on TV series, commercials, and feature films. He became a storyboard artist in 2003, and eventually started to tell his stories in sequential form, i.e. comics. In addition to War Brothers (Spring 2013), he has published about a dozen comics in Canada and abroad. In 2010, he drew a 26 page webcomic. One page per week was published online to raise awareness and funds for a small Canadian Charity called the Starthrower Foundation, whose focus is social justice and making education available to young adults in Haiti. The webcomic raised $4,500.
