HET BLAUWE WONDER VAN MINE
Mine lives in a pencil-grey world. She goes to school every day, like everyone else, but doesn’t always feel very confident. While helping out at the school library she discovers a magical blue pencil, but more importantly, she discovers her own power.
‘Het Blauwe Wonder van Mine’ (Mine’s Blue Miracle) is about everyday insecurities and the beauty of overcoming them. It’s about the power of creativity all children have inthemselves, something that hopefully also speaks to adults. #hetblauwewonder
Before my two previous books (I never thought I’d say that in the first place) this dream of a project was already in the works. And I can't believe it's actually in bookstores now. When the publishers of Luitingh-Sijthoff told me they loved my story and would be thrilled to publish it, it was an absolute dream come true. This is so close to my heart, and a story I really want to tell children (and their parents).
DIVE INTO DIGITAL
Besides working on various illustration projects and my books, behind the scenes I have started to collaborate closer with my friends at digital design agency Booreiland.
I am very excited and proud to announce I will be joining the team as creative director. I can't imagine a better environment to develop professionally and creatively, while given the space to continue my illustration work.
