More Jef Nys (II)

During his formative years, Jef Nys did a lot of work for the Flemish satirical right-wing weekly ‘t Pallieterke. He provided illustrations for film reviews, like the one above (more after the break) and political cartoons, like the one above about marathon sessions in the Belgian parliament (also, after the break) .

Personally, I think it is a bit sad that in his later work, this knack for caricature was not developed more extensively. Still, the man did what he had to do, and was succesful at it.
