De Kriegels (P@per #3)
Steven Dhondt, who uses the pseudonym Stedho, grew up in Huise, Belgium. When he was nine years old, his teacher Marc de Bel noticed his drawing talents and encouraged him to develop it in a number of children's books and comics they did together. Steven Dhondt went on to study architecture at the University of Ghent, after which he quickly returned to creating books and comics with Marc de Bel again. He has worked with Ivan Adriaenssens on the comic book adaptations of Marc de Bel's book series 'De Kriegels'. Stedho's work is regularly featured in INK (such as the comic 'Ooievarken') and P@per, the comics supplement of Brabant Strip Magazine.
Since 2016, he is part of "The Wolfpack", a creative team of Standaard Uitgeverij assigned to come up with new ideas for spin-offs with Willy Vandersteen's classic creations, following the success of 'Amoras' and 'J.Rom Force of Gold'. The other members are storyrunner Johan De Smedt, film director Vincent Bal, comics colorist and animator Tom Metdepenningen and the Dutch/Flemish comic authors Bruno de Roover, Lectrr, Romano Molenaar, Gerben Valkema and Aimée de Jongh.
