Dieter Van der Ougstraete (b. 1977), alias Dieter VDO, made his debut in 2014 with the wordless comic book ‘Snow’. His colourful style is quite distinctive and at times reminiscent of the German artist ATAK, Basil Wolverton or Jeroen Bosch. VDO annexes figures from both pop and cartoon culture and fuses them into a new, innovative whole. In 2016, he published Fantomia. He has also provided illustrations for Flemish newspapers and magazines including De Morgen and Focus Knack.
