About Joost Swarte

Joost Swarte is a Dutch graphic designer, illustrator and architect, and one of the most famous Dutch comic artists internationally, even though he has not made that many actual comics. Most of his better known series, like 'Jopo de Pojo', 'Anton Makassar' and 'Katoen en Pinbal' (1972-1979), were made in the 1970s. Afterwards he became far better known as an illustrator and architect. He is a follower of the "Clear Line" tradition of Hergé and Edgar P. Jacobs, and is in fact the inventor of the phrase as well. Swarte draws in a very calculated, technically precise style with much attention to bright colours and elegant design work. He is furthermore (co-)initiator of magazines like Modern Papier and Scratches, as well as the festival Stripdagen Haarlem and the Hergé Museum in Belgium. Text (c) Lambiek
