Blame it on the Comic Books

It all started with my love for comic books and with me not having enough money to buy them - so I had to create them myself. Ever since then I have stayed true to the principle of combining pictures and texts ... only that today the computer has become one of my major tools.

Welcome to 'FBC Art – The Cat's Whiskers'!

We – the cat and me – are glad that you have come for a visit. Everything that you see here was created by myself, using my pen, my pencil, my computer.

For about 25 years I have worked as a draughtsman and illustrator, and even longer as an author and writer – or to put it another way: I have already been busy for half of my life telling stories using words or pictures.

Apart from the art-prints, postcards and texts offered here I also accept commissions, so my skills and experience are also available for designing illustrations or creating stories tailored to your own ideas and needs. Please note my special offers concerning these custom services and if you are looking for something special feel free to send me a message to ask - Thankyou very much!

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I only accept payment by Paypal (in Euros).
Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.

In the event of your cancelling your order, your money will be refunded less any charges and commissions I have incurred through Etsy and Paypal
Items will be shipped within two days of your payment clearing, by regular mail or airmail. Shipping time will then be subject to standard practise or prevailing conditions of your and my country's mail service which is beyond my control; but expected delivery should be within two to three weeks of purchase, as a rough guide.

Should you wish express delivery, that can be arranged, for a further charge.

Please note: In order to keep costs down for you I do not use tracking on your shipping unless you request it, since this adds to quoted shipping price and increases with weight and destination.

If you wish to have your purchase specially insured in any way for shipping, please ask and I will do my best to oblige. This will incur a further charge however.

Please note: I may use recycled packaging for shipping to keep costs down. Packages may therefore not look very pretty, but they will be suitable for the item and its protection.

I am happy to giftwrap an item on request, for a further charge according to size, special requirements, etc.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not have a blanket returns policy, since every item and every situation is unique, so returns/refunds are subject to negotiation/my discretion. I do my best to describe my products a and their condition accurately and to give you as much information as I can about an item, its size etc, to enable you to make an informed choice when you purchase, and do everything I can to ensure goods reach you in the same condition in which they left me. So please remember it is a two-way process and it is your responsibility to check beforehand the things that are important to you in the item before you purchase. And if there are still things you would like to know about a product, I will be happy to answer your questions.

If a refund is necessary, you will receive the amount you paid minus the shipping cost I paid, and a further 10%, which is to cover the amount I have had to pay to Etsy as commission, as a listing fee, and to Paypal as commission, none of which I get refunded.

So please ask as many questions as you need before making a purchase, as Etsy provides this excellent facility for messaging for us. Thankyou.

Please note, unless you have requested insurance, I cannot refund for damages incurred in the course of shipping beyond what is covered by the delivery service in question as standard. Being acutely aware of this however, I will always do my utmost to ensure items are thoroughly protected to withstand the rigours of shipping.
