While still studying at the Institut Saint-Luc in Brussels, Michel Weyland made his comics debut with the series 'Stereo-Land' in Tintin in 1968. He left the comics world for several years, making a living in selling apples and unloading lorries. Eventually, he got a job at a printer in Brussels. In his spare time, he further developed his drawing style. Some of his works are published in the Belgian weekly Pourquoi Pas? in 1974. He had his breakthrough in 1979, when he created his heroic fantasy series 'Aria' in Tintin. The series's success grew, and from 1994, the series is featured in the Réperages collection of Dupuis. Weyland devoted all his time to 'Aria', but in 1988 he created the science fiction fairytale 'Yvanaëlle, la Dame de Mordorez'.
