art by Sven van der Hart

Sven van der Hart made his first comic, 'De Bielders', about a hockey team, when he was eleven years old. He studied at the Graphic School in Eindhoven, but left after a year. He moved to Groningen in 1990, where he took up his comic career again for the schoolpaper. He founded the small-press magazine De Stripper, which was awarded with the Stripschapprijs in 2001. In this magazine he could present his own comics, but mostly meet fellow artists. Since then, his talents were noticed by magazines like Foto+Doka, Tina and Taptoe. For Tina, he wrote for instance the comic 'Ciska'. In 1999, he finished his first comic book of more then nine A4 pages, 'Stoomdroom', which has been awarded the Eindhoven Strip2000 Prize. In 2000 he withdrew from making comics and moved abroad. He now lives in Uxbridge, England, where he is working as illustrator.

Series en boeken door Sven van der Hart op voorraad in de Lambiek Webshop:


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.
