Born in Chatou in 1973, Virginie Augustin studied art and animation at the École des Gobelins in Paris for three years. She worked for the Walt Disney Studios on films like 'Tarzan' and 'Hercules', and on the France 3 serials 'Witch' and 'Chasseurs de Dragons'. After working on a feature film based on Hugo Pratt's 'Corto Maltese', she teamed up with writer Wilfrid Lupano for her first comics project. This was the fantasy series 'Alim le Tanneur', that was published by Delcourt in four books between 2004 and 2009.
She participated in collective projects with adaptations of songs by Francis Cabrel (Delcourt, 2005) and Michel Polnareff (Soleil, 2007), as well as the erotic anthology 'Premières fois' (Delcourt, 2008), the art/illustration book 'Souvenirs de films' (Lombard, 2009) and the advertising comic 'Une McStory française' for McDonald's (Cliomédia, 2009). She drew the book 'Voyage aux Ombres' from a script by Audrey Alwett and Scotch Arleston in the Soleil collection Légendes de Troy in 2011, before starting the erotic mystery series 'Whaligoë' with Yann for Casterman in 2012.
