Harding was here

When he was fourteen years old, Adam Devreux took a comics course held by Vittorio Leonardo. He then did several artistic studies and, at age 18, he assisted Batem on 'Marsupilami' merchandise art. He got the opportunity to meet Franquin, and to cooperate with Yann on some gag pages with the Franquin characters 'Marsupilami' and 'Petit Noël'.

He then went to work for the magazine Spirou, where drew about 37 pages of the western series 'Glenn Duncan' with scripts by Denis Lapière in 1991. The cooperation with Lapière didn't work out, and in the following years, Adam worked on other artistic projects. He worked in animation, and briefly worked at the atelier of Tome and Janry. For several years, he did infographics for a videogame company in Namur.

In addition, Adam drew the comic album 'Harding was here', scripted by Midam, and published by Quadrants in 2008.
