About Jeroen

I'm a cartoonist. Yeah, a real one, I swear. It's just because man cannot live on bread alone that I just happen to work in a bank, also.

Hi again

Hello dear friends of mine! How is everybody doing out there? You’re probably wondering the same thing about me, what with me completely abandoning you all and stuff. This site is sort of getting this feel:

It’s basically just become a mausoleum, a shrine of rememberance for A Comic That I Used To Draw. And that’s what it’s going to stay until I come up with something new. I can’t just throw it all away now, can I? Besides, without doing anything at all, I’m still attracting a fairly steady 300 to 400 (and sometimes more) visitors a day. Isn’t that something? And, last but not least, there is also a certain muse who claims she still returns to look for new stuff every day. Hi sweetie! :-)

Anything, for lack of anything better, let me just give you a small update about myself. I’m still quite busy with all sorts of cartooning assignments. What a contrast to the start of the year when I almost thought I might have to close down business. It’s weird how that goes: first nothing, and then a bunch of new jobs at the same time. Makes my bank account happy :-) So yeah, I’m still busy, but pretty soon I’ll make a nice little cartoon specially for all of you, promised!




Hey everyone

I’m back from my trip, and I have some good news for you. No, I haven’t brought an exotic new muse back with me, sorry :-) But upon my return, I received an e-mail from Coral from Mexico, who has made the first 6 Happysad iBooks, and who let me know she has now finished the 7th and final one as well. So for those of you who were waiting for the 2012 edition: it is now available (for free) in the Apple iBook Store – just search for ‘Happysad’.

Once again, many many thanks to Coral, who again spared no effort to turn it in a truly lovely, beautiful book!

Indidently, I finally bought that new iPad, meaning I can finally read the iBooks myself (didn’t work on my first gen iPad…). That’s been a most interesting experience. Thanks to the combination of new technology and an aging memory, it feels like I’m often reading these comics for the first time. In other words, I’m sort of discovering them the way you probably once did :-)  Funny how they’re sometimes odd, embarrassing, or downright ‘what the hell was I thinking?’ awkward. But most of the time they’re just genious, of course :-D

Warm greetings,
