Floor van het Nederend is fascinated by comics, especially those made by Belgian cartoonists like Hergé and Franquin. In these comics the characters experience adventures in remote parts of the world that, at the time they were made, seemed unattainable and populated by wonderful people. The same amazement can be found in the landscapes Floor draws. His style is a mix of underground comics and punk flyers: raw, dark and usually made with black ink. The images are brutal and direct, but at the same time drawn with concentrated precision. Looking at his drawings, you drift into the dream of a world you will never visit and that is so unlike your own. It is no great pity that this world remains a dream;  these are hard landscapes, made for adventurers who are larger than life.
