Yves Ker Ambrun was born in 1954 in France. He made his comics debut at the age of thirteen, creating 'Mesa Boum', one of the first French underground comics together with Yves Laumonier. He studied in France and in the USA at the Pratt Institute in New York. He worked for many older artists, including the Disney Studios, who sent him to Germany as a creative director for Central & Eastern Europe, also working as a character artist and art director. Some of the comics he created are the sci-fi series 'HB-Scott', funny animal series 'Gaspard le Lézard', the teen series 'Flippo & Punkina' and the realistic series 'Schnecksnyder'.
