Plaagpark by Paul Schenk

Paul Schenk made his debut in the comic world in 1987, as co-founder of the underground comic magazine Acropolis, together with Jean-Marc van Tol and Marcel Ruijters. He did graphic design and photography and published his comic 'De vervloekte kelk'.

From 1988 until 1990, he published his comics 'De intelligentoos' in Striptuur. His comic 'The heavy adventures of knokige Karel en ballige Bert' was published in Incognito in 1993.

In 1992, Schenk began working on 'Bindoesara', a 64-page underground comic about hippies, occult powers and hallucinations. This story was first published as a weekly comic in the Utrecht newspaper Stadnieuws in 1996 and later as a graphic novel under the title 'Plaagpark' by Xtra in 2008.

Schenk started with his yet-unfinished 500-page graphic novel 'Magnum Opus' in 1996. After this, Schenk has worked as a caricaturist, illustrator and animator. His work is characterized as absurd and semi-realistic, and is strongly influenced by french comic artist Marcel Gotlib.
