Ferry Van Vosselen

26 08 2011

My brother-in-law won a prestigious award in Europe. Its called ‘Gouden Potllood’ (The Golden Pencil) and it basically celebrates his artistic contribution to the comic book industry. He goes by the name of Ferry. His real name is Ferdinand but during WWII his parents (living in occupied Belgium) were secretly keeping an RAF flier in their basement. (He had been shot down.) The flier couldn’t pronounce Ferdinand so he called the little guy Ferry. Ferry has been a comic strip artist for around 40 years. His books are translated into dozens of languages around the world. Everything except English.

There is an interview here with home on television. It is in Dutch. But you can see what he looks like and some of his work.
