About me

NielsMy name is Niels ’t Hooft. I was born in Leiderdorp, The Netherlands in 1980, grew up in Leiden, and now live in Utrecht with my wife Annemieke and daughters Mia and Sun. (Photo by Karlien ’t Hooft.)

I started my sole proprietorship Anticlimax in 1999, naming it after a spaceship in the comic book I’d just stopped working on. Hence the crashing spaceship. My work is wide-ranging, and for years I posted a detailed, ongoing account of what I did in my weeknotes. A more compressed, reverse-chronological overview of some of it is below.
