Great news: TAXI! will finally have it’s English release on September 10, 2019, in a marvelous softcover edition. The book will cost $17 only. It will be available from all comic book stores, book stores and online stores. I’m so happy and proud to finally present the book to my English-speaking friends. Don’t forget to leave a review, to help other people find the book as well!

To celebrate the release of TAXI!, I will be at the Small Press Expo, September 14 and 15, in the Marriott North Bethesda, United States. Readers of the book will probably recognize this name, because one of the storylines in TAXI takes place on my way to SPX in 2017. It’s going to be a lot of fun to present the book while being on that location again. I’m looking forward to the taxi drive there 🙂
During SPX I will also take part in two panels. More info can be found on the website.

“Horse and Man” animated film debuts in Waalwijk

GIF_fragment

My new animated film “Horse and Man” (3 minutes, drawn digitally), dedicated to Dutch jockey Piet van der Schans who attended the 1972 Olympic Games, debuted yesterday at the Waalwijk GO festival. The movie is about the fusion between horse and man. It is loosely based on the groundbreaking photographed sequences that Edweard Muybridge made of the running man and the running horse. The film will be released online soon, but this upcoming month, the film is running for weekends only at the old city hall in my former hometown Waalwijk, together with the works of 10 other artists from the region. Entry is free.

The incredible music score from the film was made by sound designer Arthur Antoine, with whom I’ve worked for the theatre production Behind the Telescopes earlier. The fusion of sound and images reflect perfectly the fusion of the horse and the human in the movie. More updates on the online release will follow soon. Here are some screenshots!
