Daniel Nathan Sebban was born in Casablanca, Morocco. After high school, he moved to Paris, France, where he was introduced into the world of animation by René Borg. He also assisted Albert Uderzo on the lettering of 'L'Odyssée d'Astérix'. He worked as a storyboard and graphic artist on several TV productions, before making his debut as a comic artist in Pif Gadget with 'Cra-Pouf' at age 24. He then made two comic books and a book on back pain treated by homeopathy, starring the historical character 'Apicitou' for his own Éditions Burning Bush between 1986 and 1988.

He also worked in animation and as a commercial artist for advertising or communication projects. He was art director of Lifting Communications, created comics for Peugot-Magazine and developed an animated film for the city of Montbéliard. He eventually moved to Montréal, Canada, where he continued to work on animation for studios like Cinar, Ciné-Groupe, Tooncan and Les Productions Henri Desclez, before opening his own studios, Z-Toon and Di-O-Matic (with Laurent M. Abecassis). He was an editor for Voix Sépharade, a magazine for the Sephardi community in Quebec, for which he created the comic story 'Le Coin du Cancre'.
