Leo Timmers started drawing comic strips when he was only 8 years old. At the age of 12, he published his first comic strip. After studying publicity and graphic design, he took up a job as a freelance illustrator. First he started working for children's books, later on he began doing editorial illustrations as well (a.o. for Humo, Knack, De Standaard, Menzo, De Groene Amsterdammer, Psychologie magazine). In 1989 and 1993, he illustrated two comic albums in the series 'Tom Hawks', written by Ray Appeltans.

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.
