Toon Hermans
( 17 December 1916-22 April 2000)
Pendrawing 40 X 50 centimeters ( black / white)

A well-known Dutch comedian who I admired from the beginning. 
His appearance but certainly his simplicity made him great. 
That's why I wanted to know more about this man.

When I set up the drawing there came already a heavy feeling over me. 
While drawing him it became clear that this man, who could make many people laugh, 
was very gloomily, insecure and even sometimes very depressed.

His act on the scene was not his true nature and was clearly an opponent of his role he had in real life. 
Because he felt so insecure, he relied very much on his wife, named Rita. 
She was truly his greatest support. 
Thatís why he mentioned her name from time to time in his performances. 
That usually happened when he got scared and when he noticed that it was not as he had planned.

Toon Hermans did a lot of drama, music, painting and writing. 
He always wanted to do that perfect and that gave him a hard time. 
By being a perfectionist he took a very heavy burden on his shoulders. 
It must be perfect and it was always a pressure to bring it that way.

He meant a lot to me and he was the mentor in my start to write. 
Not that I can match his simplicity and certainly not his writing 
but he gave me the guts to put things on paper and so to the general public.
