Vellevision, by Maurice Vellekoop

A true child of the TV age, Maurice Vellekoop was raised on a steady diet of supernatural sitcoms, Japanese monster movies and Ross Hunter melodramas. The youngest of four children, Vellekoop was encouraged to draw from an early age. He attended the Ontario College of Art from 1982 to 1986.

Vellekoop is best known for his colorful illustration work, which always bears the mark of his sensible light touch. His equally elegant and heart-warming comics appear mostly in the pages of Drawn & Quarterly magazine, which has introduced many fine Canadian comix artists. Drawn & Quarterly also published an excellent anthology of Vellekoop's works called 'Vellevision'.

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.
