He then moved to Amsterdam to set up the comic studio De Zwarte Handel with associate comic artist Maaike Hartjes. He has contributed comics and cartoons to magazines like POSSE, Incognito, Razzafrazz and Zone 5300. In 2002, a collection of his work was published with the title 'Ongezellige Verhalen'. He also self-published collections like 'Aso!!' and 'Horror Vacuii'. For Hello You, he created 'Swamp Thing', the comic with which he also participated in the 2006 comics contest by Amsterdam newspaper Het Parool. Oudshoorn ended as one of the finalists, and 'Swamp Thing' became a regular feature in the paper until January 2009.

One critic, impressed by the variety of styles in 'Aso!', assumed Floris Oudshoorn was a pseudonym for an entire studio of comic artists. Floris has also done some animation work for the web.

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.
