Damien Laverdunt

Guest at the 2017 Books & Music Festival

Damien Laverdunt was born in Paris in 1978. Very young, he dreams of becoming a professional footballer to resemble his idols of the moment, Chris Waddle and Rudi Voller whom he admires as much for their playing technique as for their haircut.
In 2004, he met Hélène Rajcak at the motor show. The same evening, following an animated discussion on the place of left-handers in high-level sport, they decided to work together. They create the Left-Handed Tigers, author-illustrator duo by day and punk-rock group by night. Today Damien is a graphic designer, a permanent member of the Left-Handed Tigers and teaches Esperanto in the Parisian suburbs.
