An Easter egg is: “an intentional inside joke, hidden message, or feature in a work such as a computer program, movie, book, or crossword.” I have hidden a few easter eggs in my books, and today, as we’re approaching Christmas, I’ll reveal some of them to you. When you open Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics, the first thing you see is the endsheets (only […]

In a few months, Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics and Science: a Discovery in Comics will be published in South Korea. I’m very thrilled about this!

Today 198 years ago Ada Lovelace was born – an exceptionally bright woman who became the first ever computer programmer. She led a short but interesting and in the end rather tragic life, which I’d like to commemorate with this comic: This page is actually NOT from my book Science: a Discovery in Comics, but from […]

Festivities are in the air – here in Holland we have no less than TWO this month.

It’s part of a comic artist’s life that assignments come and go. Last year, I was asked by magazine Open Deur to make a comic for their back page. It was a bit of an experiment for them, for the run of one year. And now the year is over and they decided to discontinue […]

Science: a Discovery in Comics has been out for two months now, and has received a few really good reviews:   Marc Mason in the Comics Waiting Room: “Absolutely terrific.” “Her art is simple and straight-forward, and she always chooses function over form: everything works to service the lessons she is trying to impart.

Sometimes I come across an old comic I made that makes me giggle. This one about Stella, which appeared in 2007 in magazine Flo’, still makes me laugh. I hope I captured something Calvin&Hobbes-y in there:

On display in Museum Meermanno in The Hague right now: a great exhibition of 200 years of Dutch comics! Ever since I helped putting Dutch Comics History online on Lambiek.net, the subject has been a bit of a hobby of mine. So I was very pleased and honored when the museum asked me to draw […]
