Brecht Evens


( back )

Belgian cartoonist Brecht Evens was born in 1986 and studied illustration in Ghent. Important mentors were his teacher Goele Dewanckel, an illustrator, and cartoonist/comedy-coach/zen master Randall Casaer. His debut comic book A Delivery from Outer Space, was released in 2005. The slightly melodramatic Vincent was released in 2006, followed in 2007 by a little nocturnal fantasy called Night Animals. His latest book, The Wrong Place (2009), started out as a graduation project and was a departure from the more typical comic art of his earlier books. It recently won the Haarlem Comic Festival's Willy Vandersteen Award for best Dutch-language graphic novel. Brecht lives in Brussels, where he lives off illustration work and Flemish cartoonist-grants.
