Jo Ader-Appels

In Summer 2012, I made this comic for a publication accompanying an exhibition about the life and work of Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader, who disappeared on a trans-Atlantic sailboat voyage in 1975, 33 years old. His legacy, a series of short films and photographs, has inspired artists all over the world ever since.

For this occassion, I chose to draw a comic about his mother, Jo Ader-Appels, who lived an extraordinary life, and has certainly contributed to her son becoming the inquisitive, creative person that he was.
