Betty & Dodge
Thomas Du Caju was born in Oostende, and studied plastic arts at the Saint-Luc in Ghent. As a freelance artist, he did artistic assignments for several companies. He cooperated on several animation series through Graphics & Animations in Antwerp. In 1999, he was employed by Studio 100, where he specialized in 3D work (CGI). His true ambition was making comics however.
He has been one of Merho's assistants on 'Kiekeboe' for several years. In 2005, he began the crime comic 'Sabbatini' in cooperation with writer Luc Morjaeu at Dupuis. It was stopped after four books. He then teamed up with Jean-Pierre van Rijkeghem and Pat van Beirs to create 'Betty & Dodge' for Standaard Uitgeverij. It was announced in 2012 that Standaard pulled the plug on this series.
