Madéleine Flores has been drawing since she could hold pencils in her hands. She was raised in Germany but now lives in the US. Moving around has given her exposure to all sorts of comics and she developed an early love for the classic BDs (bandes déssinées, literally drawn strips) from France and Belgium and she loves many Euro comics to this day. ‘The Girl and the Gorilla’ is her first book.
Madéleine is a writer/storyboard artist on the cartoon series Bee and Puppycat for Nickelodion. She has a webcomic called Help Us, Great Warrior and a cat called Dirtbike.
