Help, the interest rate is rising…
Inflation and mortgage rates are reaching values we haven't seen in years. I created this paper illustration to accompany this article. The balancing act was a challenge, no hidden strings this time ;-)

Heart and Soul
A handmade paperillustration for the Dutch Lawyer magazine (Advocatenblad) about a lawyer's professional distance from his client. What if a case touches you emotionally?

Thursday 26th of August 2019, the hottest day ever in The Netherlands 40,7 °C (104 °F). The earth is warming up and that's no secret anymore. Especially in cities there will be a problem if it goes on like this, therefore people need to create more green areas and less concrete.
