LES PETITS DESSINS Location: Montréal.
With a grant from the Quebec government in 1973 Hurtubise organized a cooperative called Les Petit Dessins. In 1974 this group signed an exclusive contract with the newly formed Montreal daily Le Jour to supply the paper’s daily strips. Among the organization’s six creations appearing in Le Jour on February 28, 1974 was Hurtubise’s own creation “Le Sombre Vilain”.
