Today would have been the 41st birthday of Joost van Honschoten, who passed away almost 2 years ago. Joost was a talented young researcher, holding grants from STW and NWO, working as a professor at the Transducers Science and Technology Group of the Unversity of Twente. Joost and I published several “papers” together around 1983, not as researchers, but as comic book writers when we were about 11 and 12 years old. One of them, “Honne & Ponnie en de Jacht op Ruige Robbie” can be downloaded from the link below. The comic gives an idea of the friendship, creativity and humour that we shared.
