Norbert Van Yperzeele - reMiXeD

Last Friday evening I was honored to receive one of the first copies of the brand new cartoon book of Norbert Van Yperzeele (Belgium). He himself just got the book in the afternoon from his printer and we met each other at a caricature session. I already knew Norbert as an excellent cartoonist and sculpturer, but Friday I discovered his skills as a caricaturist. 

Norbert's first book MiXeD was 'sold out' in a very short period and for that reason a second book was a logical next step in his cartoon career. It's a mixed collection of cartoons on various topics drawn between 2005 and 2013. What I also admire in the book is that between the just funny and hilarious cartoons you'll notice some that appeal to social consciousness and social issues. In this drawings Norbert shows that funny cartoons can be very serious.

"The cartoon future looks bright as Norbert retired in 2013. Having heaps of time ahead of him now, he will certainly cheer us up with more of his humorous work. Avanti!"
