Luk by Jos Vanspauwen

Jos Vanspauwen attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Hasselt. His first professional work was the album 'Het web van hij', that he made with Noël Slangen. He found employment with Studio Vandersteen as one of the artists of German 'Bessy' stories in the 1980s. When the series was cancelled, he contributed to several local weekend papers. He made cartoons for Jet Magazine, and the biweekly gag strip 'Luk' voor De Vinstermik. In the 1990s he worked on 'The Smurfs' at Studio Peyo.

Vanspauwen is the inker of 'Stam & Pilou' stories for Studio Max since 2004. He had additionally worked with Ivan Claeys on a comic story about 'Het Borrelmanneke' of Hasselt. Vanspauwen also works as an inker for Dirk Stallaert (on 'Mieleke Melleke Mol') and Marc Verhaegen (on 'Michiel de Ruyter' and 'Senne en Sanne').

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.
