Never be Clever


Wouter (37), who suffers from autism, loves to draw erotic comics.
Together with his brother, who makes paintings of large and dark landscapes, he lives with his parents in a secluded farm house. Wouter is fascinated by the MTV animated series of ‘Daria Morgendorffer’.
Throughout the years the character Daria became a big influence in his work. As he begins to publish his comics online, the more prejudices people begin to develop against him. Wouter is becoming aware of the image he presents because of his work, but he has his own way to put these in perspective.
