Maarten Vande Wiele (Gent, 1977) works as an illustrator, but his true passion is comic art. His illustrations were featured in various Flemish and Dutch magazines. His first comic book ‘Glamourissimo’ was released in 2000. Then followed ‘Strip noir’ (2005) and the ‘Doctor Carnacki’ series (2006). In 2008 he published ‘I love Paris’, his first graphic novel, followed by ‘I hate Paris’ in 2009. His most recent graphic novel ‘Monsieur Bermutier’ is based on several short stories by Guy de Maupassant.
