Welcome and thank you for your interest in my work as an illustrator and comicbook-artist.

Although I'm an illustrator and comicbook-artist by trade I ' m interested in lots of others things and I figured it would be nice to share at least some of these interests with you.

Have fun!

Scrap Metal Part II

Well it has been a while but here's an update about the comic I was busy translating into the Dutch language. Well at least that is what I thought I was doing. In the end it turned out there had to be done a lot of more work besides translating in order to get the comic published. Because there was but room for an 8 page story I had to almost cut in half my 15 page story(!).
But it turned out well and I think the story has become more powerfull because a lot of items in the end were not essential to the story.
By cutting the story in half I was forced to use only the most necesary ingredients of this little tale. Storiewise this cutback of pages has been a blessing in disguise.
