After World War II, he studied both at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Dresden and the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee. He began his career in 1952, working as an illustrator for DDR publishers Frischen Wind and Eulenspiegel. In 1974 he drew the comic story 'Aus 25 Jahren', that appeared in Das Magazin.

Dittrich is known for his accurate drawings of war machines and his apocalyptic pictures of mankind's future. Unfairness, stupidity and capitalism were the main targets of his satirical work.

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.
