Consumade by Dieter van der Ougstraete

Dieter van der Ougstraete is a Belgian comic artist and fine artist. He studied animation at the Kask in Ghent, and initially worked as a DTP operator. He published his drawings, full of horror and filth and references to 80s pop culture, on Flickr and thus gained international fame. He has since published in underground and alternative magazines from all over the world, including the 'Savage Dragon' anthology by Image Comics in the USA.

In Flanders and the Netherlands, his drawings and comics have appeared in magazines like Zone 5300, Plots, Nrc.Next, Quest and Zizo. Van der Ougstraete calls his influences the work of Francis Bacon, Neo Rauch, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, Basil Wolverton, Simon Bisley and Winshluss.

In 2020 he joined 75 Dutch & Flemish comic artists to make a graphic contribution to the free collective comic book ‘Striphelden versus Corona’ (Oogachtend, Uitgeverij L, 2020). The book is intended to support comics stores who had to close their doors for two months during the lockdown at the height of the COVID-19 virus pandemic.
