In 2001 he made his first multidisciplinary cultural presentation, in which he combined film, music, sports and fine arts. However, cartoons and comic stirps remain a constant in his career. In 2006 he hosted an exposition with Limburg cartoonists like Paul Kusters, Berend Vonk, Joep Bertrams en Ruben L. Oppenheimer. He was head of the kuS art centre in Heerlen from 2006 until 2011. In that year he co-founded Tekeningz with Gady Mirtenbaum and Berend Vonk, a collective of artists for business and cultural events.

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.
