Puck by Pieter Dorst
'Puck' (Tina #5, 1999).

Pieter Dorst is a Dutch digital media designer and concept developer, with a previous career in cartoons and illustration. During the second half of the 1990s, he was co-editor of the amateur comic magazine Bikkel, and the first artist to draw the gag strip 'Puck' (1999) in girls' magazine Tina. Since then, he has worked as web designer, online marketeer and IT professor, and is also active as producer and presenter of radio broadcasts and podcasts.

Originally from Nunspeet, Pieter Dorst was one of the initiators of the amateur comic magazine Bikkel, which he edited together with Janko Bosch. Between 1995 and 1997, ten issues were published, for which Dorst created comics with the title hero. Among the other contributors to Bikkel were Dennis Spaans, Alex Turk and Roy Spraakman. In early 1999, Pieter Dorst briefly returned to cartooning, when he drew the first eleven episodes of the new gag strip 'Puck', in girls magazine Tina. Written by Frank Jonker, the feature was later drawn by Paul Hoogma (1999-2002) and Peter FitzVerploegh (2002-2005).
