cartoon by David Sipress
"Your mother and I are feeling overwhelmed,
so you'll have to bring yourself up."

David Sipress graduated from Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. He decided to professionally pursue his lifelong habit of cartooning. In addition to submissions to The New Yorker, his work was regularly published in The Funny Times, Utne Reader, and the Spectator of London. Since 1971, he has been a weekly contributor to the Boston Review, and has published eight cartoon books. Initially inspired by European "gag" cartoonists, he now cites Saul Steinberg and other New Yorker cartoonists as his main influences. His drawing style is loose, personal, and most importantly, always built around the foundation of a funny but resonant joke.

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.
