His comic 'Jan Lul en zijn maat' and 'White Man's Burden' were published in Van Gennep's De Andere Gids, and caused quite a stir with the Federation of Parents because of their candid drawings.

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.
