Tribute to Jan Cross in stripglossy

The beginning of this year, died a comic-strip artist Jan Kruis, best known for the series of Jan, Jans and the children, the coming weekend to be honored with the release of a entirely up to him sacred glossy.

That is filled with information about him plus unknown, old and hitherto unpublished recent work of the Cross. Including, the very last that he was working on: a portrait of Charles V. Except in comics was Cross very well into real portraits.

Els Cross, the wife of Jan, tells in the magazine about that last time of her husband: “At one time, he had hardly any energy left. He was often sad: ‘Why can I not?” Then I said, ” Tomorrow it might be again.” I was glad when he cartoons, which is also about his death. It was really a battle for him to accept that he would die. He really wanted to.”

In the glossy, for example, a drawing of a asverstrooiing, in which one of the attendees says: “Actually, it was-ie has always been scattered,” and also a picture of a grandchild in the coffin of his grandfather.

Especially for lovers of striphistorie is also the found material interesting that the basis was for Jan, Jans and the children, such as the strips Gregor and Stientje and Gertje.

The special Cross-glossy, there is one in the series StripGlossy, which is four times per year. The episode is called StripGlossy to 5.5, because it is a tribute and not a regular number. The proceeds will be invested in the Foundation Jan Cross Collection, that the work of the cartoonist in the future for a large audience to access and maintain.
