1. Have you ever trained to draw?
“not Really. I think it's important that my message gets across, so I opted for a simple kleuterstijl. (laughs) After a few months of cartoons to post on Instagram, I have immersed myself in the drawing. I looked at videos on YouTube, studying how others draw. Since then, I'm also working on projects in a more difficult style. The variation ensures that I am always with a fresh head on my cartoons start.”
2. Are your cartoons based on their own experiences?
“About 90 percent of my cartoons are autobiographical. It is a matter of careful in my daily life. I register my frustrations, strange reactions of others, take my relationship with people under the microscope. My mobile phone is full of notes about things that stand out. Also situations from the past are a source of inspiration. Sometimes I get messages from friends who ask him whether everything is okay with my friend Roel, because I have a cartoon posted on heartbreak. Fortunately, I can reassure: that are inspired by past relationships.”
3. Your cartoons are recognizable. You choose consciously to be a voice of millennials?
“I'm just a millennial with millennialproblemen. Problems that we dare not show. Therefore, recognize a lot of people in my not so perfect life.”
4. What problems keep you awake at night?
“I'm very concerned about the environment. All that plastic, all those fumes, all that deforestation ... Sometimes express frustrations in my cartoons. Now, take the previous month. Then there were 75,000 people on the street to make it clear that the climate is a concern that lives. Two days later Belgium voted against more ambitious climate change targets. It makes me very sad.”
