Fred Julsing, 1942-2005


Fred Julsing passed away on Saturday in California. The Hague-born artist got his start in the Toonder Studios as the primary assistant to Marten Toonder on the "Tom Poes" (Tom Puss) strip for six years, before striking out on his own with titles such as "Wellington Wish" and "Ukkie" for magazines like Pep, Okki, Taptoe and Primo. He was also known for his work adapting fairy tales, which from the looks of the art at an extensive fan site is quite believable. After surviving a horrific plane crash in Portugal in 1992, he moved to Southern California where it appears he became interested in making spiritually-based art such as these pieces sampled here.
