My name is Marcel Brekelmans.
I was born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands,
on January 20th, 1958. As a matter of
fact, Amsterdam is the place where I live
Unfortunately, my drawings don't pay the
rent, so in order to keep a roof over
my head I make a living as a software
engineer for a Dutch banking-related corporation.
My biggest dream though is to quit my
job and make a living of my artwork. Preferably
on the West coast of the U.S.A. or Canada.
About my drawings: it's something I have
been doing since the age of 16. After
a period of marriage, children and divorce
(in which I neglected my pens-and-paper)
I picked it up again.
Someone wrote in my guestbook: "Your
drawings are Weird. I like them...".
I thought it a compliment, being Weird
with a capital W.
