A Composing Companion

Lately, a friend has joined our little workspace, bringing a whole new discipline in our comics-dominated world: Michiel Mensingh is an old high-school friend of Yiri, and an acclaimed composer of modern classical music.

The new input inspired me to make these cartoons:

The piece Michiel has been composing will be performed by pianist Laurens de Boer on 22 March 2013. More information here.

About the Author

Margreet de Heer
Margreet de Heer
Margreet de Heer lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, with her husband Yiri T. Kohl. A long time ago, she studied Theology at the University of Amsterdam, but through divine intervention she ended up as a comic artist. She worked at the famous comic store Lambiek from 2000 until 2005, and wrote a book about Dutch comics together with Kees Kousemaker. Since 2005 she is a full-time comic artist producing a wide range of work, from children's comics in magazines to cartoons at business conferences. In 2007 she started making philosophical comic "reports" for newspaper Trouw. This resulted in a book edition in 2010, soon followed by graphic novels about Religion, Science and World Domination. Margreet plans to expand the series to a total of seven books, also covering the subjects Love, Death and Self. 'Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics' and 'Science: a Discovery in Comics' are successfully published at NBM. 'Religion: a Discovery in Comics' came out in October 2015.
