Bronze Adhemar laureate Judith Vanistendael (1974) is a true ambassador of comics and reaches a wide and international audience with her drawings. She always delivers socially relevant comics, always in a different style. Thus, it should not be a surprise that she is influencing the new generation of comics creators.
Vanistendael is a master in creating the right atmosphere and scenography and each of her comic books can rightly be called a true piece of art. A piece of art that is carefully constructed, that gets under your skin, that alternates melancholy with lightheartedness, that touches and that is beautifully moving every time.
