Gummbah's cartoons are full of absurdism and extreme situations. Influenced by the French humorous magazine Fluide Glacial, he published his first comic, 'God', in 1994, distributing it himself. His talents were immediately recognized by Dutch publishing house De Harmonie, which started publishing his cartoons the same year. Gummbah's name was established, and his work began appearing in de Volkskrant, Nieuwe Revu, HUMO, and the trade journal for booksellers and publishers, Boekblad. His cartoon collections ('De Tijd Vliegt Slecht' - 'Time Flies Badly', 'Het Geheim van het Verdwenen Mysterie' - 'The Secret of the Disappeared Mystery', 'Hoe Eddie in Balbezit Kwam' - 'How Eddie Got Possession of the Ball') were best-sellers and have been reprinted many times.
"Ha, ha, ha... and he calls himself Superman!"
