Work is partly busy and covered with drawn additions and made for a friendly relationship. and numbered on the back M23 fc Cartoonist Jan Zandstra, now 72 years old, came into contact with making cartoons while working at an advertising agency. At first Zandstra did not consider himself a good artist, but after he saw the work of cartoonist Ted Schaap (now called Scapa and is a celebrity in Switzerland) he thought: “I can do that too” and so he started making cartoons that he typifies himself as: "revealing, but without ado." Zandstra tells how he drew himself to the top step by step. Starting around the age of 20, he explains that he was still in new territory: "Cartoons were still a fairly new phenomenon." In addition to his daily work in the advertising world, he drew cartoons almost daily for the newspaper Tubantia and the Algemeen Dagblad for many years. When the advertising world did not go as well in the nineties, Zandstra decides to continue independently as a full-time cartoonist. "The starting point of every cartoon remains a cartoon without text." But Zandstra says that he often adds text to a cartoon because this is necessary for understanding. A disadvantage of this, according to Zandstra, is that the cartoons become a lot more specific, like the cartoons he made for Between Art and Kitsch. "But cartoons do offer you, with or without text, the chance to be tough." As an example he mentions the cartoons he made of a reorganization in which employees fight each other. "With cartoons you can also broach sensitive things." The things around Zandstra, events or news current affairs are sources of inspiration for his cartoons. Although Zandstra's cartoons have a short, concise, but also sharp side, Zandstra emphasizes that as a cartoonist you also bear a lot of responsibility. "You have to be careful, you can say anything but not without thinking." His cartoons may be harsh, but Zandstra does not insult people. For that he has his wife by his side who sees to this. Although Zandstra is not the youngest anymore, he still draws. ”Over the years I have made thousands of cartoons”, Zandstra describes his oeuvre. But today he only accepts assignments occasionally, and only when they seem very nice or important to him. Zandstra's explains: "I have turned my hobby into my job and that remains fun."
