I was introduced to Matthieu Bonhomme’s work, when I was stopped in my browsing tracks, after seeing his Texas Cowboys covers.
Mr. Bonhomme came from an artistic background. After earning a degree in Applied Arts, he developed his skills further by working in the studio of fellow French comic artist Christian Rossi. There, in amongst illustrating for newspapers and magazines, he honed his skills. Mr. Bonhomme later meet Fabien Vehlmann, whom he would collaborate with on his first series of comics, ‘Le Marquis d’Anaon’. Published by Dargaud, it ran from 2002 to 2008. In 2005 he began to write and draw a children’s series titled ‘Le Voyage d’Esteban’. Publishers Dupuis have recently released it’s 5th instalment.
As far as I can tell, Mr. Bonhomme has not made a home for himself in any corners of the web. However, I did stumble on this little gem of a site, for ‘Le Marquis d’Anaon’.
