Dutch Disney artist Bas Heymans is the older brother of Mau Heymans, also a Disney artist. Born in Veldhoven, he was educated at the École des Beaux Arts in Montpellier in the 1970s. He started out inking his brother's stories in the mid-1990s, but after a while he started pencilling stories of his own. He shares his comical style with his brother, with typical long necks and beaks.
In later years, Bas' stories were often inked by Jules Coenen. Unlike his brother, Bas has not only drawn stories with the Ducks, but also with other characters like 'Brer Rabbit' and 'Joe Carioca'.
For the KNVB and Opel, he draws the strip 'Daar Heb je Dutchy!!'. Together with Sander Gulien and his brother Mau, he is one of the most productive Dutch Disney artists.
