Polar bears on my wall

Happy with these framed polar bears. I did not draw this. It is drawn by Mark Janssen. A talented Dutch illustrator.

Calendar book

It has been so busy these last months. Posting new things on my blog wasn't first priority ;-)
So this is "old news" but I wanted to show it anyway. Beautiful book and I was quite exited about the book presentation. My illustration soooo big on multiple screens ...

Benji & the giant kite

So much rain in the Netherlands this winter. While the raindrops fall on my roof I think of the beach, sun, wind and kites ... Just finished the illustrations. Benji & the giant kite is going to be released somewhere in 2018.

Benji & the 24 pound bananasquash

In Dutch and in English! For little gardeners. 
With all his might Benji puts some seeds into the earth. Eagerly he follows the progress of growing. He lays in the sun beside his banana squash. He smells it, touches it, and puts sticks in the ground to measure how big it gets. A simple story that opens up children's eyes to one of nature's smallest and at the same time biggest wonders. Written by Alan C. Fox. Clavis books
