SPX was a great success, Saturday being especially busy. Even as the hall’s size was increased a lot, we ended up doing as well as last year where many others at the show felt their business was a bit down. Margreet de Heer was very well received on her new book Science, A Discovery in […]

The Resonating Brain

In July, I went to Oxford Summer School and attended a course about the human brain – it still resonates with me, and somehow, consciously or subconsciously, these “brain”-drawings keep popping up in the comics I made since. For magazine Open Deur I did an illustration about music – including the route musical sensation takes […]

Readers of my blog will know that I’m a big fan of writer Neil Gaiman – from his Sandman in the nineties, which was a huge influence in my decision to try to make the leap into a life in comics, to his Calendar of Tales last Spring, on which I collaborated; and now there’s his […]

I drew a whole bunch of cartoons during class – something I would be chided for in high school but […]
