The fact that Dutch-born artist Tobias Tak once had to choose between a career as a graphic novelist or one as a tap dancer seems to make perfect sense, based on his surreal style that evokes turn-of-the-century story books and films of the ’30s and ’40s. I haven’t seen his tapping skills, but judging by his comics, I’m glad he chose the former path.
