All of the ‘Vuurdoop’ Illustrations

17 people did something they never dared to do before. Together with author Jorie Horsthuis they took the big step and I illustrated there stories weekly for Het Parool in the weekend editions of PS. This weekend we ended this column with 6 illustrated follow-up stories and an final article. I enjoyed making this column very much, and found it a real challenge every week but: we did it!
