David Prudhomme studied illustration in Angoulême, before gaining public recognition for his series Ninon secrète which ran between 1992 and 2004. He then collaborated with Pascal Rabaté on Jacques a dit and Le jeu du foulard, before teaming up with Étienne Davodeau in 2003 to work on the graphic adaptation of Georges Brassens’s novel La tour des miracles. In 2006, he illustrated La farce de maître Pathelin and J’entr’oubliay by François Villon, thus coming back to the roots of French literature. His Rebetiko earned him the prix Regards sur le monde and the prix Lire 2010 in 2010, the prix Ouest-France/Quai des Bulles and the prix Best Foreign edition at Comicdom Festival in 2011.
