For several years, she made a weekly cartoon about a dispirited guinea pig called 'Elp de Cavia', who also made his appearance on T-shirts and postcards. She got a grant for the creation of her first comic book, 'Ik, God en mijn oma', a story about the author's grandmother filled with childhood memories and anecdotes. It was published by Catullus and presented at Gallery Lambiek in 2010. Kuyvenhoven currently prepares her second book, works as a live cartoonist and is committee member with the Grant Programme for Design of the Dutch Creative Industries Fund.

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.
