Vincent Deporter was born in Nivelles, Belgium, but spent most of his childhood in Toronto, Canada. He returned to Europe in 1973 (French Riviera), moved back to Belgium in '78 and started his comics career in Brussels assisting Jean Graton on his series "Michel Vaillant."
He since then worked in both comics and animation.
Starting in 1984, he made the weekly "Romťo" strip with Philippe Rive for the women's magazine "Maxi" for over 15 years (the strip is still running without him). In 1987, he was present in "Spirou" magazine with the absurd gag series "Crazy Planet", which was followed by "Les Fourmidables" in the 1990s. He signed these comics Mike Deporter. He then did the official comic book for 'Un Indien dans la Ville' with Thierry Lhermitte, while also working on the storyboards for the movie.
After relocating in New York in 1996, he worked on DC's line of comic books adapted from popular animated cartoons, like Ed, Edd n Eddy, the Flintstones, and mainly Scooby Doo (also as a main cover-artist). He has also inked many of the Batman and Superman style-guides. At the same time, he also worked for Nickelodeon Magazine, drawing the Rugrats, The Wild Thornberries, and more notably writing/drawing for the Spongebob Squarepants Comics years before the show was aired. Since Nickelodeon Magazine has closed it's pages, he now writes and draws for the SpongeBob SquarePants Comics, as a regular contributor.
