After obtaining his degree in Graphic Arts, Damien Jacob worked at an advertising agency specialized in pharmaceutical products for one year. Not satisfied with the job, he enrolled in the Saint-Luc Institute in Brussels for six months, and then studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of Angoulême for three years. During his studies, he published his first comic book, 'La Meute', with the publishing house Le Cycliste in 1996. He then began an association with the publishing house Delcourt and the scriptwriter Jean-Pierre Pécau and drew the series 'Les Fées Noires' (1999-2001), 'Arcane Majeur' (2003-2008) and 'Une brève histoire de l'avenir' (2008-2012). He also participated in Pécau's collective project 'Jour J', for which he drew the eighth installment in 2011.
