About the author

Born in Bordeaux in 1968, Michel-Yves Schmitt spent his childhood and young adult life in Nantes, France, where he studied Applied and Fine Arts. Mr. Schmitt eventually left the French seaside for Paris and began work as a graphic designer (mockups, logos). In the late 1990s, he participated in the fanzine Yuck where he directed mainly cartoons. In 1999, he decided to strike out on his own. This led to work mostly for professional journals. But this changed in 2001, when he answered an advertisement on the Internet that ultimately led to his current active career in graphic novel illustration.
