In 2007-08 Bries published Spruyt's solo project, the diptych 'De Furox', a fictional story about a dragon set in the historical context of the arising Nazi regime in 1933. In 2010 he published 'In Rozen' about the history of the Flemish socialists. A collection of his autobiographical fiction stories for Focus Knack and Zone 5300 are collected in the book 'SGF', a "reconstruction of the life and work of S.G.F. Spruyt, one of the main comic industrialists of his time", published by Silvester in 2011.

In 2011 his album 'SGF' received the Stripvos for Best Dutch-language comic book. In 2014 Spruyt won the Willy Vandersteenprijs for 'Junker - Een Pruisische Blues', a graphic novel about two Prussian brothers in the years leading up to the First World War.

Since 2016 he is on the editorial board of the Flemish comics news magazine Stripgids, together with comic artists Nix, Marc Legendre and Judith Vanistendael, and journalists Karl van den Broeck and Roel Daenen.

Spruyt was one of several artists to make a comic strip for the booklet 'Building Bridges in Europe’ (2012), published by the European Association of National Builders’ Merchants Associations and Manufacturers (UFEMAT).
