Comment

Quand on évoque les westerns, certaines images reviennent irrémédiablement à l'esprit: les cowboys chevauchant à toute berzingue un sol aride et inhospitalier, les saloons enfumés peuplés de rebus de la société, les mines d'or sombres attirant les opportunistes en tous genres, les fiers indiens prêts à tous pour sauvegarder leurs territoires, les chevaux à vapeur traçant leurs sillons sur des terres vierges... et les grands espaces, indubitablement.
Le far west, c'est une certaine image de la liberté et de la conquête éperdue de l'homme vers l'inconnu.
Même si elle ne constituait pas mon premier choix, j'ai tout de suite aimé cette planche car elle me ramène à l'ouest américain dans ce qu'il a de plus noble: l'immensité de la nature face à la civilisation qui tente de la dompter.
Et en plus il y a une rustine :)

About Dimitri Armand

French comic artist Dimitri Armand was born in Orléans, where he grew up reading both American comic books, manga and Franco-Belgian comic series. With this diverse background, he studied at the Art Academy of Nantes, where he mainly learned the technical aspects of the drawing profession. One of his teachers was the comic artist Erik Juszezak. Near the end of his education, he was approached by the publishing house Le Lombard to work for them on a series scripted by Thomas Chailan. This resulted in the launch of the occult fantasy series 'Salamandre' (2008-2010), which was meant to become a trilogy, but ended after two volumes. Between 2008 and 2013, Armand also drew five books of the fantasy series 'Angor' for Soleil Productions, from scripts by Jean-Charles Gaudin. In 2015 he returned to Le Lombard to draw the western one-shot 'Sykes' by Pierre Dubois. The publisher also assigned him for a new comic series based on Henri Vernes' adventure novel character 'Bob Morane'. Written by Luc Brunschwig and Aurélien Ducoudray, the aptly titled 'Bob Morane - Renaissance' took a more modern and futuristic approach to the character. Text (c) Lambiek
