Damien Andrieu was born in France in 1990. From an early age he grew interested in illustration and history, particularly aviation. He studied graphic design for three years before switching course, deciding that he preferred to pursue illustration. He inquired with Zephyr Publishing, and very soon found a home for his talents, influenced by American comics and cinematic narration. Andrieu worked for the publisher from 2011 to 2013, creating a number of illustrations and covers and learning much along the way about creating comics. This led to his biggest break: in 2017, he signed on for an ambitious four-author project titled "L'Aigle à deux têtes" ("Wings of War," Europe Comics), teaming with scriptwriter Patrice Buendia on the "Adler" trilogy, which recounts the story of a Nazi fighter pilot during WWII; his life is destined to intersect with that of an American B-17 pilot, whose story is told in parallel in "Eagle."
