Comic art by Wilbert van der Steen

Wilbert van der Steen has been working as comic artist and illustrator since 1993. He has published monthly cartoons and comics in Gay Krant (1993-2000) and Food Magazine (1994-2011). His illustrations have appeared in school and children's books since 1995. He wrote and illustrated the book 'Pension Kat' in 2008.

He returned to comics in 2009. He contributed short stories to the Benelux Comics Contest in 2010 and 2011. In 2010 Van der Steen launched a celebrity comic based on Dutch transvestite Dolly Bellefleur: 'Made in Dolland' (2010-2012). The title was a nod to a 1994 theatrical show by Bellefleur.  The comic appeared online and was written by Bellefleur himself. This makes it the first Dutch comic strip with a transvestite as the main character. 'Made in Dolland' was furthermore notable for its social messages, promoting tolerance of LGBT issues. The first book of his co-creation with Marc Legendre, the fairytale series 'Ayak + Por', was published by Strip2000 in 2014.

In 2017 his graphic novel 'Zon' won the Willy Vandersteenprijs.
