WORDS BY THE AUTHOR / In my drawings, I try to communicate a narrative that is based on the structure of comic book culture. Growing up reading classic Dutch and Belgium comics, my visual style has developed from the use of fantasy-like characters into simplified figures. By using a variety of medieval symbolism and elements, I try to translate a certain story or meaning into my own visual language. Often, the images suggest a certain development or timeline, which I try to show by using repetition.

My work is often about issues and problems faced by younger generations. An important element of my drawings is the urge to simplify a complex and fast moving society. The countless images and information lead to a versatile and confusing time, where everyone seems to live within their community of like-minded individuals. With my drawings, I often try simplifying the relation between good and bad, by recreating symbols that have been existing within western culture for multiple generations.
