A trained illustrator, Vincent studied art at university in Bordeaux. At twenty-five years old, he published his first graphic novel, and the same year, 1995, he moved to Paris. In 1998 and 2000 he published two more graphic novels,
this time with the influential underground comic book publisher L’Association, and around the same time he began working as an illustrator for the French daily Libération, before moving on to work at Le Monde, all the while quietly developing his stamp art. Today he’s dedicated full-time to it.
