After his studies in Graphic Arts, Nicolas Bournay met scenarist Froideval at publisher Glénat. The two teamed up and started the fantasy series 'Nexus' in 2000. From 1999 Bournay has also done graphics and design for computer games. In 2000 he gathered five of his fellow artists to do the project 'Requiem Tenebrae!', each artist doing the artwork on one chapter.
