Belgian cartoonist Brecht Evens was born in 1986 and studied illustration at Sint-Lucas Gent, Belgium. Important mentors were his illustration teacher Goele Dewanckel and cartoonist/comedy-coach/zen-master Randall Casaer. His comic book The Wrong Place (2009), started out as a graduation project and was a departure from the more typical comic art of his earlier books. It won the Haarlem Comic Festival's Willy Vandersteen Award for best Dutch-language graphic novel, and an award at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. He followed The Wrong Place up with The Making Of (2011), the many-year-end-best-of-list appearing Panther (2016) and the dutch and french version of The City of Belgium (2018), which won Jury’s Choice at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. Brecht lives in Paris, 20th arrondissement.
