Nicolas Keramidas

Artist & Scriptwriter

Nicolas Keramidas first earned his Baccalauréat (French high school diploma) in illustration in Grenobles, France, before he obtained his diploma in animation from the Gobelins School in Paris. In 1993, he started working for the Disney Studios of Montreuil while doing advertising work for the city of Grenobles. At the end of 2000, Nicolas submitted a project to the publisher Soleil featuring the character of Luuna, a young girl living during the prehistorical era. But then he met Didier Crisse and together they made Luuna become a young Native American, thus creating Nicolas's first series, published by Soleil. Today, the series of Luuna counts seven books. With Arleston, Nicolas created Tykko des sables, a series of three volumes also published by Soleil. Then he worked on a book from the series Donjon written by Joann Sfar and Lewis Trondheim, published by Delcourt. In 2012, with Tebo, he launched the trilogy Alice au pays des singes published by Glénat. A Coeur Ouvert (Open-Hearted) is his first book published by Dupuis (Europe Comics in English, 2021).
