These cartoons were made for Dutch kids' newspaper 7days, for an article about trainings/educations.
I'll translate: -circus artist: "Bravo! You're the best clown student I ever had!" ...."This actually was a real accident.." -foreign language: "...He learned to speak Mandarin..." -food design: "I call it ... potatoe!" -lab animal care: Can't be translated...it's a language bound joke.

Educational illustration

These are illustrations I have made for a large educational publishing company, for a pilot. In the meanwhile I have illustrated many many more images for them. But since secrecy statements are tight and the time between illustrating and publishing can be up to two years it can take a while before I can show the work. Anyway, these were created in june 2010.

New 'Junglefun' for Scouty Magazine

Here's a new comic page I made for Scouty. It's in Dutch, sorry. The idea is that Mowgli is painting, Baloo says he doesn't like it that much, Mowgli gets upset, Shere-Kan hears him yelling and thinks he is weakened, goes for the attack and than gets scared stiff by Mowgli's painting. Baloo's conclusion; A painting that impresses Shere-Kan THAT much has to be a good one.
