Excited to be a special guest at SPX Washington this September!

It’s official now: I will be a special guest at the SPX Washington this September, together with Tom Gauld, Cyril Pedrosa and Pascal Girard. It’s amazing to be a part of this group of people – especially because I will launch my Enlgish debut comic book The Return of the Honeybuzzard during the SPX. Can’t wait!

Les Tuniques Bleues / Blauwbloezen

As some of you already know, I’ve been working on a 6-page hommage of the comic Les Tuniques Bleues (De Blauwbloezen in Dutch). I’ve been reading this comic series since I was a kid, so that was a very special project. It’s also been fantastic to work with the publisher Dupuis for the first time. The book will be out in October 2016.

Here is the French cover of the book (by Blutch), the Dutch version (by me) will be released soon.

The book ‘De terugkeer van de wespendief’ is visiting more countries than me….😉

The Spanish version is now available, the English one is going to be released during SPX Washington in September. I will also be present at the Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds, in November, to sign the book. Exciting times! See you there?


Spanish translation of ‘De terugkeer van de Wespendief’

It’s here! The Spanish translation of ‘De terugkeer van de wespendief’, or as they call it, ‘El regreso del halcón abejero’ is in stores from today on! It was published by Ponent Mon. I’m really curious of what the book looks like, since I’ve only seen the digital version…. Anyway, I’m really proud and happy that Spain (and all the other Spanish-speaking countries) can finally enjoy the book as well!
