Comic art by John Croezen

Groningen-based comic artist and animator John Croezen studied at the Minerva Academy for a while, before working as a freelancer for advertising agencies. He started drawing comic strips with a friend for student, education and other government papers. He has mainly worked in animation, including work for commercials and children's programs, as well as picture book animation. He has worked with comedian Herman Finkers on the animated films 'Kroamschudd'n in Mariaparochie' and 'MacBeth'.

Among Croezen's comic strips are 'Gronings Geertje' (for a local cultural paper) and 'Hademar en Moem'. He succeeded Jan Kruis on the board of the Dutch Comics Museum in Groningen and he was the initiator of the digital comics magazine Kwynk, that featured new and old work by Kruis, as well as work by other authors.

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.
