Donald Duck #15, 2006
Mau Heymans is one of the most remarkable present day Dutch Disney artists. Born in Veldhoven, he started his career in 1987 at Oberon, at the time the publisher of the Dutch Disney publications. Mau is at his best in short, humorous stories with Donald Duck or the other Duck characters. His specific artwork on the Ducks, with their long necks and beaks, as well as the many goofy background jokes, makes his pages easily recognizable in the Donald Duck weekly.
He has illustrated stories by other Duck scenarists, such as Frank Jonker, Evert Geradts or Jan Kruse, but he has also written many stories with his partner Kirsten de Graaf. Mau and Kirsten have co-produced a great many of back-covers gags throughout the years, starring Donald Duck and Daisy, or the 'Duckies'. Besides comic stories, Mau has also illustrated many crowded posters with the Duckburg characters. Mau's brother Bas is also an artist of Disney comics.
