His humorous drawings contained funny characters in strange situations, and have been popular throughout his entire career. Although Dubout made many lithographic prints, oil paintings and advertising illustrations for theaters and cinemas, his main occupation was illustrating books, such as poetry by Villon, and novels by Rabelais, Boileau, Molière and De Balzac.
