There, he drew 'Fideel, de Fluwelen Ridaar', 'De Nonsensikale Tweehoofdige Gevlekte Filodendron', 'Arabella, de Geleerde Slak', 'Pepijn' and 'De Wonderwinkel', as well as several illustrations. He was also present in Zondagmorgen with the stop-comic 'Sylvester Beukenoot' in 1963 and the 'Batman' parody 'Gabriƫl Gagman' in 1966. In 1972, he joined De Nieuwe, for which he drew 'De Nieuwe Ark'. In addition, he did 'De Palavers van Savarin' in Belgische Avenue and 'Iamboree' and 'Weber' in Knack. He drew three fairytale children's comics in Rosita ('Het Zondagskasteel', 'De Kip, De Keizer en De Tsaar' and 'De Grote Ballonrace').
