In a follow-up to the overview, Modern Living: The Graphic Universe of Han Hoogerbrugge, BIS now presents the cartoon album, Pro Stress, the Internet project that now occupies Han Hoogerbrugge on a daily basis.
In the work of draftsman/animator Han Hoogerbrugge, the artist wrestles with humour for everyday life and investigates his obsessions, neuroses and emotions.
Stress is one of the emotions with which Hoogerbrugge, in contrast to most people, thrives well on. Stress gives him a kick, making him able to do many things at once, achieving a work flow in which many new ideas crop up.
In Pro Stress, over 200 short cartoons have been collected in which Hoogerbrugge, in delightfully humorous fashion, observes the world and, in addition to the protagonist, who was always an alter ego of Hoogerbrugge himself, observes such famous figures as David Lynch, Nick Cave, Dr. Phil, Bob Ross, Ross from the Friends television series and Quentin Tarantino play their parts.
