Philippe Chauvet studied to become an architect, but eventually decided to become an illustrator for the juvenile press. He illustrated several children's novels at Casterman, as well as educational books. He began his series 'Les Aventures du Jeune Grégoire' in the magazine L'Echo des Savanes. The scripts of the comic are by writer, actor and musician Camille Saféris. The strip is collected in albums by the publishing house Hors Collection, retitled 'Seul Avec Nous Deux'. Also for L'Écho des Savanes, Chauvet and Saféris created 'Superslip'.
