Along with scenarist Olivier Guéret he started the 'Norbert l'Imaginaire' series, that appeared in the collection Troisième Degré Lombard from June 2001. Between 2001 and 2002 it won the award for 'Best Debut' at the Comics Festivals of Antibes, Sierre and Middelkerke. His work could be read in Cash Magazine between 2004 and 2007 and since October 2007 in L'Echo. Vadot also published in Trends-Tendances, Le Soir Sports, The Bulletin and Pan. He holds both the Belgian as Australian nationality, after moving to Australia in 2005. 

He was one of many Belgian cartoonists to make special cartoons and comics for Gilles Dal’s book "België, et cetera" (Van Halewyck, 2016), a funny look at the history of Belgium. 

He is one of several Belgian cartoonists who are a member of the collective and website The Cartoonist, established by Marec, where Belgian cartoonists make their archived and new work available to the public.
