Parisian artist Dim. D began his artistic career at age 15, making drawings for tatoos and cd covers. At age 18, he contributed to the fanzine Avenir, created and financed by the media library of Bagneux. Every issue of the fanzine was directed by a professional from the field, such as Guy Michel and Jean-Luc Istin. He eventually teamed up with Istin professionally in 2000, when the first book of their science-ficiton series 'Aleph' was published by Nucléa. During this period, he also served as a colorist for other Nucléa series. After three books, Dim. D and Istin created their second joint project, the heroic fantasy series 'Le Seigneur d'Ombre', for Soleil between 2003 and 2009.

For Glénat, he was the artist of the historical comic about Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton, that was written by Alex Nicolavitch, in 2012.
