Philippe Glogowski was born in Charleroi, Belgium in 1960. He graduated in 1982 from the Academie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. During the 1990's Philippe published a number of short stories all of which he both drew and wrote, in Spirou magazine. Since then 16 titles have been gradually added to his personal bibliography. His primary inspiration comes from a study of history, but far be it from Philippe to limit himself entirely to one area of subject matter. His current ' works in progress' are set to show that he has a variety of strings to his bow.
