My name is Barbara Stok. I am an award-winning comic artist from The Netherlands. My book ‘Vincent’, about Vincent van Gogh, is published in more than twenty countries around the world. At the moment I am making a new graphic novel: about one of the first female philosophers from ancient Greece.

I briefly studied Photography at the Royal Academy of the Arts in the Hague and worked briefly as a journalist, before ultimately choosing the profession of comic-book writer and illustrator. In my first stories I depicted my own everyday experiences: going to punkrock concerts, the fear of death, the art of doing nothing. In my work I constantly pose questions about what really matters in life and how to live. I have 12 books to my name.
