After obtaining his degree in Plastic Arts and a long trip to northern Africa, Jean-Michel Beuriot began his artistic career working as an illustrator. He created his first comics for the publishing house Lombard. He created several comics for À Suivre, before Glénat published his first album, 'Le Bruit des Bottes'. Together with Philippe Richelle, Beuriot produced 'Belle Comme la Mort' for À Suivre. Again with Richelle, he began the 'Amours Fragiles' series at Casterman in 2001.
