D Day, by Fred Marschall

Fred Marschall studied Dutch language at the University of Amsterdam, and has worked as a freelance illustrator since 1980. While studying, he published comic stories in alternative publications like Dick Maas' magazine Formule S (1973), Stripje (1975-1976), Speedo (1977), Aloha and De Vrije Balloen. As an illustrator, he is specialized in drawings about historical subjects, which he makes for (school)books, magazines, museums and websites. Fred Marschall has also made drawings for text stories published in the Dutch Donald Duck weekly, and for children's books by Tais Teng.

He has worked on several projects with the writer Pieter van Oudheusden, including the short stories series 'Liefde & Verraad', serialized in Titanic and collected in book format by Arboris in 1990. In 1983 he got a Stripschapspenning for his contribution to the educational book 'Stripwerk'. Marschall worked with the French writer Christian Godard on the World War II comic 'D Day', published by Glénat in 2008.

In 1985 he was one of several graphic artists to contribute to the anthology book, 'Tegenaanval' (De Lijn, 1985), initiated by Patty Klein. The book protested against the conviction of comic artist Wim Stevenhagen who refused to fulfill his military service.
