Pieter De Poortere
Pieter De Poortere (b. 1976) became a freelance illustrator in 2000. His work has appeared in publications including the Flemish weekly magazine Humo and the French quality newspaper Le Monde. His debut in 2001 was the wordless comic book Dickie, more than ten volumes of which have since been published, as well as a complete collection. De Poortere comments with blunt honesty on human failings: greed, narrowmindedness, jealousy, political scheming and international warmongering. He always manages to remind his readers that everything is relative within the greatness of our universe.
