Wobby is a Dutch quarterly, Risograph printed magazine
for illustration, comics & literature
Dutch artists Jeroen de Leijer and Marjolein Schalk from Tilburg-based Studio De Leijer started Wobby.club together with S. Lloyd Trumpstein in 2015. They publish and print the independent Risograph magazine Wobby 4 times a year, with various guest artists. The magazine balances on the edge of art, comics, illustration and literature.
The Wobby factor can be described as humorous, quirky, authentic and with a certain roughness. Wobby.club cherishes the imperfection of Risoprinting and adores the colours of the inks that gives the magazine its special look. Each edition features a theme, like 'testosteron', 'the garden' or 'nasty stuff’. Various guest artists, illustrators, comic book artists, and writers, both national and international, proven and upcoming talent, are invited to contribute new work. To mention a few: John Broadley (UK), A.H.J. Dautzenberg (NL), Joakim Drescher (DK), Charlotte Dumortier (BE), Bobbi Oskam (NL), Floor Rieder (NL), Typex (NL), Aart-Jan Venema (NL), Lukas Verstraete (BE), Maartje Wortel (NL), Zane Zlemeša (LV). You can find the full list here.
