Endre Lukacs

Endre (André) Lukács was born in Budapest, at the dawn of the twentieth century. He worked for a while as a commercial illustrator in Vienna before moving to Holland in the 1930s. In Amsterdam, he started out as an artist in an advertising agency. After this, he was employed by the Geïllustreerde Pers, who asked him to draw for the newly launched Donald Duck Weekly Magazine. He did this for 30 years, designing covers and creating stories. He was one of the first artists to introduce Dutch elements into Donald Duck, such as the characteristic step-gables, and once he even made a story featuring the Dutch soccer team. For the coloring, a time-consuming activity, he was often assisted by his daughter Chris.
