On Friday evening 15 November is illustrator, cartoonist and screenwriter Wilbert Plijnaar Special guest at the Comic (f) Listen audio tour of Art Index Rotterdam. Plijnaar is known as a co-author of Sjors & Sjimmie en Clear, but also as a scriptwriter of Despicable Me en Ice Age. He also portrayed his aunt, the well-known jazz musician Rita Reys, on the Oude Binnenweg for the jazz route Rotterdam Jazz Artists Memorial (R'Jam).

Wilbert Plijnaar has been working from LA for 25 years for large studios: from Warner Bros and 20th Century Fox to Dreamworks. In November he comes back to his hometown Rotterdam, because his portrait of Rita Reys on the Oude Binnenweg is completely finished by the special lighting of the work.
