Gihef, whose real name is Jean-François Baudot, was born in Belgium and grew up in France. Following his meeting with the cartoonist Eric Lenaerts, he moved towards a more realistic style of drawing. In 2001, he published his first project, RIP Limited, with Nucléa. He then published comics at Vents d'Ouest and Dupuis. Gihef then turned to what really fascinates him: the storytelling of comics like OSS 117, L'Envers des Contes or Mister Hollywood. He is at the origin of the universe imbued with Nordic mythology which serves as a stage for the stories of Sirens of the Norse Sea.
