Lukas Verstraete

In a world filled with poor blighters, burlesque women, knights and dispirited heroes, 25-year-old Lukas Verstraete shapes a dimension from which he draws his graphic stories. He lets go of his doubts about human nature and looks, entangled in naivety, grease and big emotions, for a decent answer to the meaning of our existence. His cartoon debut, Een boek waarmee men vrienden maakt (‘A book to make friends with’) appeared last June.
