Olivier Brazao started drawing comics of his own when he was only eight years old. He studied art at the Émile Cohl School in Lyon, where he got his degree in comics and illustratation. He dropped his comics ambitions for a while, and took on illustrating for the juvenile press (Nathan, Milan Presse, Hachette, Magnard). He got re-aquainted with comics through his wife, comics artist Béatrice Tillier. He met Thomas Mosdi at a festival, and together with this writer, created the series 'Sheewõwkees' at Delcourt.
