Deadline

Today is the deadline for the comic book 'Grenzenloos' about (the borders of) the Province of Limburg. Together with the Tekenkingz and Marco Jeurissen and Jean Gouders we will be issuing this book in November of this year, 150 years after Limburg became part of the Netherlands as a province like the others.

The 'Dodendraad' ('dead line') is also on of the topics in my second comic in 'Grenzenloos'.
This electric wire of 2000 Volt was installed along the Belgium / Dutch border by the Germans to prevent the Belgiums to flee their occupied country. Many people were killed in trying to escape.
Nothing much has changed since for people fleeing a war...

House with tratched roof



Every day I pass this house with tratched roof. As a matter of fact I happen to know the owner who is looking for a piece of art by me. This might please him. But I'm wondering... I think the drawing needs a little more shading in the background. Dilemma...

Grenzenloos



New project coming up: together with my friends and colleagues with whom I followed the course 'Visual Reporter' we are preparing a comic book about the frontiers of Limburg province. This book will be telling the stories of the ever changing borders of this most southern Dutch province, which is incorporated in personal union with the Kingdom of the Netherlands only since 1867 (Treaty of London). Mind you: 150 years ago!

Participating in this project: Gady Mirtenbaum, Berend Vonk, Jean Gouders, Marco Jeurissen and me. We hope to publish Grenzenloos at the end of this anniversary year.
