Eefje Wentelteefje, by Jeroen de Leijer

Jeroen de Leijer, best known as the creator of 'Eefje Wentelteefje', studied at the St. Joost art academy in Breda. He has been drawing 'Eefje Wentelteefje' since 1988. The strip is about an eight-year-old girl with a surprisingly realistic view of life. One of Jeroen's career highlights was in 1995, when he won the Prijs van Breda voor Strips. 'Eefje Wentelteefje' has appeared in the Brabants Dagblad, BN/de Stem, Zone 5300 and Medisch Vandaag, as well as the newspaper AD.

Series en boeken door Jeroen de Leijer 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.
