I am so sorry I seem to forget to update my website these days!
(I regularly post on Instagram though)
It just means I'm hard at work illustrating a 'new' book about Zebedia bear, where he goes in search of the end of the world. This story was first published some 30 years ago, and is now undergoing a remake to be published next spring as a prequel to this years book, roughly called Zebedia and the game of the goose, that had its second edition out, and was one of the books to get special attention at the Frankfurt bookfair last week.
Today I changed one of the walls in my studio, and hung only portraits this time.
Beside portraits I made earlier, in acrylics and in colour pencil, there are five 15 x 15 cm children's portraits in template print, from an ongoing series I am working on. There will certainly be more.
Ofcourse all work is for sale, please contact me if interested.
Don't forget to give your own email address so I can send an email back.
I have started a new series of small printed portraits, each measuring 15 x 15 cm, in an edition of 9.
More portraits will follow.
It might not always be clear, as I am extremely bad at keeping up a webshop, but ofcourse I make all my work to sell. Please send me a message if interested.
The prints above are € 60,- each.
Today we were at the printers, Wilco in Amersfoort, with Monique from the publishers, to see our new book Zebedeus en het ganzenbord van Wisse being printed.
It is looking gorgeous, and will be for sale from May 26.
I love everything about the printers by the way, from the enormous machines to the stacks of paper and linens!

I found some copies in the back of my cupboard of two small leporellos I made a long time ago as X-mas cards. The upper one is 'The Boar's Head Carol', the one below is 'In the Bleak Midwinter'.
I decided to sell them now for € 10,- each.
Send me a message if interested.
The X-mas cards of watercolors of X-mas ornaments that I had printed last year are for sale again now. For the reduced price of € 10,- per set of six.
I also still have some sets of the botanical cards I also had printed.
€ 17,50 if you buy (any) two sets, € 25,- for 3 sets.
I also came across two small prints I made years ago, one the carol 'In the Bleak Midwinter', the other the 'Boar's Head carol'. They were handprinted in a small edition, and I have some copies left for € 10,- each. They can also be sent as cards.
Send me a message if interested, please include your address.

Yesterday the mailman brought a box full of our new book Voor altijd vandaag (Forever today), a book of poems by Koos Meinderts, with my prints.
I had looked forward to this book, and it has turned out beautiful.
