Franka - Epposter Franka - (1977)
Kuijpers, Henk - Very good - 1 Print

Epposter Franka. EPPOster Franka on an epPOSTER. (The pun remains difficult and Dutch, after reading three times, it still isn't really fun yet) BUT FROM 1977! I am only working for three years and this is taken from record 6 of my third book "De terugkeer van de Noorderzon" (a better pun, I do say so myself). A3 size. I like to draw large images and this was an opportunity, offered by the then brand new old EPPO that could still afford to offer the 250,000 weekly readers all sorts of extras. I like to look at this image: I quickly developed myself at that time and "the speed" is already in it: everything moves logically: waves, foam, sail, and palms, are pushed from right to left, the red head sterns celebrate their own animation party. Franka is still halfway between the Dupuis proportions, but she already dominates the image, nicely hanging against the wind. This definitely became her comic strip. Oude Bars is going to transfer his role to son Jonge Bars. Jarko is actually already only extra and heading to the exit.

Full colour poster, A2 size, 46 x 57 cm. Annex EPPO 49, 1977. Signed.
