Daan Jippes artwork

Just saw these incredible layouts and the finished page by the great Daan Jippes. Currently for sale from Galerie Laqua in Germany.
( $1626, €1270)



Laqua also has a good selection of covers and pages with the Disney ducks for sale.


Damn he's just way too good!
And the Swedish Donald Duck weekly has been running lots of covers and new (!!!) stories drawn by him lately. Always a pleasure to see new artwork by him. It inspires me to draw. It's like an ink injection that makes me run to the drawingboard. Very few artists have that effect on me. Daan is sure one of them.

Brukade vara så fascinerad av Jippes att jag satt och förstörde ögonen på de nummer av Carl Barks & Co där där Freddy Milton reprintade hans omslag i svartvitt, kraftigt förminskad.
Min Jippes-galenskap nådde sin topp när jag tågluffade tll Harlem i Holland och oanmäld klev upp på Donald Duck redaktionen för att träffa honom. Tyvärr, hade han redan flyttat till USA. Redaktionen var mycket förundrad över denna svenska nörd som bara dök upp.
Ingen lyckad stategi.
Hans komposition och tuschlinje är oöverträffad.
Tyvärr är han inte lika bra på historier.
Tack för en intressant sida som jag ofta lurkar på.

Du är inte den ende som förstört ögonen på de där frimärksstora bilderna i CB & Co. :)
Det var nog min första kontakt med Jippes artwork och jag kunde bara inte fatta att det fanns nån som satt och gjode de där bilderna vid den tidspunkten. Jag menar, man var ju van vid Kalle Anka & C:os omslag av Gil-Bao och kompani....
Så bra artwork måste ju bara vara från 50-talet, resonerade jag. :)

Hello!
My buddy Butch Guice directed me to your site.
Is there anywhere on-line where I can buy Daan Jippes' albums?
(I'm in the USA)
I was not aware that he did anything other than duck stuff (which I enjoy!). The Havank stuff looks amazing!
Also like you own artwork. A very appealing style!

Looks very much like Amazon so it's pretty easy to navigate even if its in Dutch.
Theres also another album ("Tea for two", from the early 70's) but I don't know if its in print.

"Tea for two" has also been translated into Swedish by RSR Epix in the 90's under the title "Te för två", which might be easier to find than the Dutch edition.

I love Jippes' artwork, especially the non-Disney from the 70's. Sadly I think Jippes' stuff has deteriorated. The new artwork for Egmont and "Havank" isn't that outstanding with "Jippes standard"
