comic art by Kapreles

Yves Albrechts, who uses the pseudonym Kapreles, was born in 1978 in Belgium. He started drawing at the age of five. In 1996, his first work was published. Kapreles' illustrations, cartoons and comics have appeared in magazines all over the world, such as Gonzo Circus, Beeldstorm (Belgium), Hôpital Brut (France), Malefact (USA), Mono Grafico (Spain) and Bitterkomix (South Africa). Yves Albrechts self-published the following titles: 'Kapréles' in 1996; 'Kapreles Artware' and 'Kapreles Underwear' in 1997; 'De Illustere Illustrator' in 1998 and 'Something Else' in 2000.

Kapreles' primitive art and absurd, rude humor is inspired by artists like Gary Panter, Mark Beyer and Matthias Giesen.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
