Joachim Heijndermans writes, draws, and paints nearly every waking hour. Originally from the Netherlands, he’s been all over the world, boring people by spouting random trivia about toys, movies and comics.
His work has been featured in a number of anthologies and publications, such as Mad Scientist Journal, Ahoy Comics, and The Gallery of Curiosities.
His story ‘All Through the House’ was adapted as an episode of the Netflix animated anthology ‘Love, Death & Robots’.
He’s currently in the midst of completing his first children’s book.

“So what is it?” I asked Steven, as he stood there with his arms wide and grinning like an idiot, like he was P. T. Barnum or something. Steven and I have worked at Oberon Tec. for almost five years. To be fair, I don’t really know they guy. We … Continue reading
