Ype Driessen studied Artificial Intelligence but has been making professional photo-comics since 2004, when he started '3hoog', a series about three students, which is published in several student magazines. In 2007, Ype started the first ever autobiographical photocomic, together with his boyfriend Willem. This comic, 'Ype+Willem' appears online four times a week and has been printed by publisher Catullus. The comic also appears in Passionate Magazine, Stripnieuws, sQueeze and on nrcnext.nl. Another photo-comic he makes is 'De VrijMiBoys'.
The format of his photo-comics (usually gags of 4 panels) proved so popular that Ype has been making them into photocomicfilms: photographed films with text balloons, which have appeared on Dutch TV. Ype lives and works in the city of Utrecht.
