Team 4Pac

(originally “Matrix Originalverpact”)

After Matrix Originalverpact was left unfinished, it never left the back of my mind. I kept filling in the blanks. In 2018, I started storyboarding again and in 2020, I finally started to actually draw those missing chapters.

You can read the ongoing story here.

American Hero

As part of the ambitious first try of this game project during high school circa 2004, I made a few graphic novel pages to be used instead of cutscenes, much like in the main inspiration, “Max Payne”. Only 2 pages were finished.

Halloween 2k4

In 2004, our next attempt at a short Halloween themed comic was successful and we even printed a couple of issues.

Halloween 2

For Halloween 2003, another short story was to be written. This one was left unfinished.


First spin-off of Matrix Originalverpact in the spirit of The Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror for Halloween 2002. There are two stories about alternate

Matrix Originalverpact

(later “Team 4Pac”)

New school, new ambitions: When Tori and I started to both draw a comic featuring our classmates in 2002, we soon decided to merge the two stories into one. We then spent another year and countless nights writing new chapters, but never fully finished the story. In the end, we wrote a final chapter to conclude it, but some gaps were left in the middle.

Humble beginnings


Cartoons drawn on A6 sized paper sheets, chronicling life in eighth grade and various attempts at creating a Star Trek fan comic (heavily “First Contact”-inspired) called “Star Pac”.

Family comics

Cartoons telling stories about family life with two brothers. Key audience: The grandparents.

“Funny” magazine

Maybe you shouldn’t call your own jokes funny. But around 1997, I did design a weekly magazine for my class called “Funny”, containing puzzles and an ongoing adventure story in the dutch language. Some digital elements, such as the title, were designed digitally and printed out, then I added the drawings by hand. The next step was to make copies using the school’s printer. My family was recruited to assemble the copied pages into individual issues at home.

The adventures of Igi Ig

One of the earliest attempts is a suburbia comedy about an inventor sharing a house with living plushies, including one of a hedgehog. Pretty weird!
