Frederik Peeters has been nominated at Angouleme in the best book category five times. The publication and success of Blue Pills firmly put him on the map as one of the most important graphic novel authors tackling difficult topics with sensitivity. He is constantly looking to challenge himself with projects that are both important and hugely imaginative from Blue Pills, Lupus, RG and Koma, Sandcastle and Pachyderme. He lives with his wife and daughter (whom Blue Pills was based on) in Geneva.
