Those were the days...

Today I finished the final illustration for a childrensbook situated in the days of the coal mining industry around here. The book is written by Pieter Jan Rijken and will soon be published by Leon van Dorp Uitgeverij.

A year on, another comic book

Last summer we were working on the Comicbook Grenzenloos, which turned out to be a success. So this year we are doing a follow up with a comicbook about 'Heerlen after the closing of the coalmines...'.

With artists like Gady Mirtenbaum, Berend Vonk (both Tekenkingz), Jean Gouders and Marco Jeurissen it is bound to be good again.

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...
