The Breton artist Dominique Lidwine did his first comics attempts at some "Cartes Blanches" for Spirou, but these remained unpublished. He then took on several small jobs. His first paid art job was working for Frilouz, a magazine that also published the work of Rollin, Hiettre, Plessix. In 1986, he drew 'La Véritable Histoire de Conrad Deschamps'. A year later, he drew 'Les Aventures de Zaza, la Chienne de Michel Drucker'. He started 'Le Dernier Loup d'Oz' in La Frite Équatoriale, a series that was continued at Delcourt later on. He also worked with Régis Loisel and Serge Le Tendre on 'Quête de l'Oiseau du Temps'.
