Jeroen Janssen has been a postman, teacher, driver, gardener, and library assistant and has worked with psychiatric patients. He has always had a great passion for drawing, but did not start making comics until the 1990s. When he was working at an art school in Rwanda, he started turning true stories into comic strips. This approach has become his trademark and he does not shy away from difficult topics. His work includes an investigation of the threatened Flemish village of Doel, and he has also depicted Ecuador and Rwanda with a great eye for detail.
