During the seventies Sjef van Oekel was a TV-personality created by Wim T. Schippers. He was a clumsy, chaotic character that became very popular because of his jokes and typical way of talking. In 1976 he even got his own comic created by Schippers and the Dutch Klare Lijn artist Theo van den Boogaard. The comic also became very popular and was even translated to other countries, although the stories and jokes were very Dutch.

Next april a second collection of the Van Oekel comics will appear and the publisher asked several Klare Lijn artists -like Joost Swarte and Hanco Kolk- to create a tribute to the character and Van den Boogaard. I already can show you my creation, in which you can discover somebody familiar...
