And this is Alfred J. Kwak , ( The Yellow Duck, playing with the dolphin ) a comicbook-character that I created together with dutch singer/songwriter Herman van Veen and my friend, teacher and colleage Hans Bacher ( who some of you might remember as Art Director/Production Designer on "Mulan" and many, many other projects) .
Alfred originated as a character in a musical stage show in the late 70's. I first gave him his current design in 1984 for the German poster of the stage show, in which Herman van Veen appeared as the entire cast and narrator on stage. Subsequently we did 3 comicbooks with more adventures and were approached by a Dutch producer for 52 episodes for TV. The show broadcastet worldwide ( exept U.S.) , was awarded many times and since we were always approaching the current problems and issues of the world in a very childlike manner, Alfred was officially nominated Unicef-Ambassador in 2003for the rights of children.
Currently we are working on a couple of new projects all around the duck and we are getting ready to build the Alfred J. Kwak- House in Goch, Germany as a refuge for children in need.

I've always LOVED the Alfred Jodokus Kwak series, and Herman Van Veen's song for it (the Dutch title song is an all-time classic up here). It definitly was my favorite show when I was a kid. Nice to find out Hans Bacher and yourself were involved!
