Born in 1971 in Arras, Gergory Mardon worked with several teams of animators after completing his studies at the Gobelins School of Animation in Paris, focusing on the principles involved in elaborating backgrounds. With these teams he contributed to the backgrounds and storyboards of numerous animated series produced in France, including "Papyrus," "Blake et Mortimer," "Fantômette," "Diabolik," etc. Concurrently, he made his initial forays into the realm of comics by producing three complete four-panel stories that appeared in Spirou between 1998 and 1999.
In January 2000 he first attempted a full-length comic book with Vagues à l'âme, a magnificent narrative about his grandfather that was published by Humanoïdes Associés.
He continued to pursue his career in animation until 2002, when the publication of his second album, "Cycloman" (Éditions Cornélius), together with Charles Berbérian, incited him to make the "big leap" to the world of comics. It was then that he took on the complete authorship of a grand fresco on contemporary daily life with Corps à corps, published by the Aire Libre collection at Dupuis. This work marked Grégory Mardon's definitive inclusion among the authors of large-scale adult-oriented comics. His talent was then confirmed by his comic book series Incognito (Dupuis 2005, Europe Comics 2016), about the infernal spiral of human relationships. Perhaps one day we will get an animated film out of him...
Né à Arras le 6 novembre 1971, Gregory Mardon, après un stage à l'école des Gobelins à Paris, participera aux décors de nombreuses séries de dessins animés produits en France, dont Papyrus, Blake et Mortimer, Fantômette, Diabolik, etc.
En 2000 il publie aux Humanoïdes Associés un magnifique récit sur son grand-père, "Vagues à l'âme".
En 2002 il publie "Cycloman" chez Cornélius, réalisé avec Charles Berbérian, et c'est ainsi qu'il s'attaque ensuite en auteur complet à une grande fresque sur la vie quotidienne d'aujourd'hui : "Corps à corps" est retenu pour la collection Aire Libre chez Dupuis et marque son entrée définitive parmi les grands auteurs de BD.
