James Ringrose was a Dutch illustrator and artist coming from a family with British origins. He was employed by the Dutch Marten Toonder Studios in the 1940s. He is best known for assisting Henk Kabos on the inking and the text for the newspaper comic 'Tekko Taks'.
The strip first appeared in De Nieuwe Nederlander in 1945 and was continued in Trouw until the mid 1950s. The Toonder Studios continued to distribute 'Tekko Taks' to both Dutch and international newspapers well into the 1970s.
Blix Kater (Tom Poes Weekblad, December 1947)
'Blix Kater' and 'Willie en Wop' were Ringrose's own creations that ran in Tom Poes Weekblad. Ringrose and Kabos also cooperated on a comic strip called 'Barendje Big', that was signed "Rincká" and published in the women's weekly Eva in the 1960s. His son is director for VARA television Cesco Ringrose.
