Joost Swarte lives and works in his Dutch hometown of Haarlem. Trained as an industrial designer, he was attracted to the total freedom of expression he saw in underground cartoons of Robert Crumb, Spain Rodrigues, S. Clay Wilson and Justin Green. By 1970 he started his own comic strips, made his first silkscreen in 1975 and continued to developed his distinct "single panel narrative" style that tells a story in one frame.
