Globentrotters, by Martijn van Santen

Martijn van Santen graduated in illustration from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, after which he focused on making comics and doing an occasional illustration assignment. He has participated in the horror anthology 'Bloeddorst', published by Bee Dee, and his comic 'Globentrotters' has been published on the web (Stripster) and in comic magazine Myx.

Van Santen makes contributions to the Belgian comic magazine Plots, and the Dutch small press comic De Lijn. He self-published his book 'Werk in Uitvoering' through his Stortbak label in 2010. It collects experimental comics starring both humans and anthropomorphic animals, which he previously published on his website in 2007. The book won the VPRO Debut Prize in 2010. In 2007 he won the Clickburg Webcomic Award, or "Clickie", in the category 'Epic Clickie' for 'Werk in Uitvoering'. In 2012 Van Santen's 'Het Ondernemersdilemma' won the Plastieken Plunk for 'Best Comics Short Story'. 

He should not be confused with Dutch animator, painter, voice actor and comic artist Martin-Jan van Santen, AKA Martian (°1968).
