Fred Grivaud started out writing and drawing for fanzines like Direct Importation and Scarce, while still studying fine arts in Epinal. After his studies, he joined Semic France, where he did various covers, illustrations and some scenarios. He eventually helped launch the magazine Fantask, which features new stories with the old characters of the publishing house Lug. Grivaud has illustrated episodes with 'Phenix' scripted by Jean-Marc Lofficier. He has cooperated with Philippe Bonifay as an artist of the series 'La Compagnie des Glaces'.
