He settled in Tiel in 2000, where he has made the weekly comic strip 'Peerke' for the Tiel Actueel section of De Zakengids. Since 2002, he is the artist of new comic books starring 'Flipje', the classic mascot of jam factory De Betuwe, originally drawn by Harmsen van Beek in the 1940s. The new stories, that are written by Mia Verbeelen, were however not created in commission of the factory (now Hero), but are focused on the city of Tiel and it's environment. In 2008, he drew the educational comic album 'Het Goud van Kampen' for Pear Productions.
