Daan Jippes (born Daniel Jan Jippes on 14 October 1945) is a cartoonist, who has worked with Disney and other comics. He is admired by his fans for his lively emulation of Carl Barks' drawing style, and was therefore chosen by Egmont to redraw some old Junior Woodchucks stories from the 1970s, originally written by Carl Barks and drawn by John Carey, Kay Wright and Tony Strobl, for a new audience in the 1990s. He also drew many covers for Gladstone Publishing's Disney magazines in the 1980s and 1990s in a great variety of styles.
Daan Jippes started his comics career in the Netherlands, where his work was published in the comics magazine Pep in the late sixties and early seventies. He rose to national recognition with his comics album Bernard Voorzichtig: Twee Voor Thee. In the mid seventies he started working for the Dutch Donald Duck magazine, where his interpretation of the ducks and Mickey Mouse also drew the attention of the Disney Studios in Burbank, California. He was subsequently hired and worked for the Disney company: initially for the merchandizing department, later for the animation department as a designer and storyboarder, contributing to films as Rescuers Down Under, The Prince and the Pauper, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Apart from his work at Disney's, he also worked as a storyboard supervisor on Amblimation's Balto.
Daan Jippes is currently working as a comics artist in the Netherlands.
