Minck Oosterveer pursued an education to become a master of the arts. Although he grew up in The Netherlands (Holland) with European comics, he was soon more interested in American comics, especially the newspaper comics of the 1930s-50s. It was the pulpish, direct style and the usage of black and white in the realistic artwork that attracted him the most. Oosterveer's work is strongly influenced by Milton Caniff, Alex Raymond, and Will Eisner.

After working for a studio on productions like 'Tom & Jerry', 'Sesame Street', 'Paddington', 'Ovide' and 'Spider-Man', Minck Oosterveer started working with Willem Ritstier on the series 'Claudia Brücken' for the franco-belgian publishing-house 'les editons Lombard' and Tintin-magazine . The collaboration with Ritstier resulted in a daily newspaper comic in an American style, 'Jack Pott', in the Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad. Since 1996 Oosterveer worked also with Willem Ritstier on the newspaper comic 'Zodiak' for De Telegraaf, and series 'Rick Rolluik' for Suske en Wiske-magazine, and 'Arachna' for ComicWatch-magazine.
He did the art and story for the comic 'Excalibur', published by Enigma and artwork for a successful animated movie, 'Mario A'.

In 2002, Oosterveer and Ritstier started a new daily comic strip in De Telegraaf, called 'Nicky Saxx', their most successful comic-series up till now. Their latest comic-series is called 'Trunk' (2006). Next to working on'Trunk' they teamed up (2007) as writer (Ritstier) and penciller (Oosterveer) for 'Storm' (don't confuse with 'Storm' by Marvel), a successful European comicseries created by englishman Don Lawrence, (there is also an other team formed by Romano Molenaar, Jorg de Vos and Martin Lodewijk)
August 2008 Minck Oosterveer debuted in US-comics with "Zombie Tales #4" published by BOOM!-studios.

He died on september 17th 2011 in a motorcycle accident.
