After an artistic education in applied arts, Michel BLANC DUMONT worked with his father for three years, restoring paintings and art objects. It is during this period that he developed a passion for the "wild west" and the Native Americans. He began doing some comics work on the side in 1973. He started out publishing in Phénix, but eventually joined Jeunes Années, where he illustrated several Indian legends as well as several posters. His actual comics career took off in 1974, when he began the western series 'Jonathan Cartland' with scenarist Laurence Harlé in Lucky Luke Magazine. The series, that ranks as one of the best in the genre, was later continued in Pilote and Charlie Mensuel.
In addition to 'Jonathan Cartland', Blanc-Dumont made several illustrations for advertisements and book covers, and cooperated on magazines of Bayard Presse, such as Hi Kids! and Je Bouquine. His illustration work was collected in the album 'L'Univers de Blanc-Dumont' in 1984, while his short comic stories were collected in 'Courts-Métrages' a year later (both published by Dargaud). Blanc-Dumont started a second series, 'Colby', with Michel Greg at Dargaud in 1991. In 2000, he took over the artwork of the series 'La Jeunesse de Blueberry' of Colin Wilson (text by François Corteggiani). Source: Lambiek
