comic from Radiobode, presumably drawn by Henk Gijsbers

Hendrik Jacob Gysbers (or Gijsbers?) was a Dutch illustrator and political cartoonist. He was one of the main illustrators for the AVRO Radiobode in the 1950s. In alternation with artists like Henk Albers and Eppo Doeve, he was one of the regular illustrators for the 'Paul Vlaanderen' serials, among other things. He was also possibly the artist for the comic strip 'Eddy de Televisie-aap', that was written by Paul Biegel and published from 15 December 1957 until 1 February 1959. Gijsbers has made satirical cartoons for magazines like Elsevier in at least the 1980s. Gijsbers is also credited with the 1991 comic book 'Caspar en de Neminsky-diamant', published by Bert Meppelink in 1991.
