In 1946 he made the silhouet comic 'Koning Appel' for Libelle. Through his work during the War, he got involved with the illegal paper De Waarheid. For this magazine, he created the daily 'Zeven Dagen Strip', which reflected on current events, in 1946.

From 1951 to 1972, De Waarheid published his longest-running comic, 'Fed en Vetertje in Priktolland'. From 1972, the strip was continued and reprinted in Het Nieuws van de Dag. Another memorable comic that Brouwer illustrated around 1950 was 'Dirk uit Dirksland', written by Sjoerd Schwitter. Furthermore, for the ASN Bank he developed the character 'Eppo Eekhoorn'. Using the signature Ipse, he was additionally an artist for Haagse Post between 1953 and 1955.
