Illustrated spread for the autumn issue of WNF magazine Panda. Autumn issue… ahum, yes, I have been way behind posting on my blog here, since the teaching in Utrecht and Amsterdam took a lot of preparations. The Amsterdam ‘back to school course’ just finished, so I can pick things up again!
Sweet water such as rivers and lakes are of great value to humans, animals and plants. Article about the importance of freeing rivers from dams and reservoirs. What a fun assignment this was, drawing all the animals and plants that live nearby sweet water.
In case you haven’t paid a visit to Wildernis at Bilderdijkstraat 165 F in Amsterdam, please do so! It is such an inspiring place. Plants hang from the ceiling, terrariums, watering cans and gardening tools line the shelves: it is a true urban oase. You can image I was really exited when they asked me to illustrate their windows, and prepare an exhibition. The exhibition started the beginning of september, and I made a postcard, 2 posters, a collage and some nice gifttags especially for Wildernis.
The window filled with little beetles, butterflies and plants

For ‘Aan de keukentafel’, a special magazine edition of COOP supermarkets, I illustrated 7 tips to stay fresh this summer. First time I drew my illustrations on a Cintiq drawing tablet, really happy with that!

Going on a holiday with your little kids? No booking-stress anymore! On the site Mama goes here real parents share their personal tips for the best family holidays. I designed the logo and header for this website that is filled with the most amazing spots. My studio partner and allround brand identity developer Aura Scaringi from Mimimou did an excellent job in designing and building the site. It was fun to be working together on this project!
On the site I also share two holiday location tips from us. One where we have been two years ago (Krete), and one that was my favorite childhood camping in France.
Yes. We have been working really hard. So I guess… it’s time for a well deserved holiday!
Pink, purple and white. Those where the three colors of the romantic Bouvardia flowers that I had to design a package for. What a lovely assignment. The flowers are very sweet and candy like, so this is the feeling we needed to look for. It turned out a combination of watercolor paint for the flowers and pen for the leaves.
This Bouvardia was named Bellevardia ®, after a famous French physician in ordinary to His Majesty at the court of Louis XIII in the 17th century, Charles Bouvard. It was a beloved plant in the Jardin des Plantes, the botanical gardens in Paris, that monsieur Bouvard had founded.
Bellevardia ® package design was commissioned by Boerenjongens for Royal van Zanten, in coöperation with my agency Artbox Centre for Creation
