And on the road again! From seeing her artworks on Instagram to holding some originals in her home studio. I got to meet the friendly Marieke Nelissen in Den Bosch, where I learned more about the world of children’s book illustrations.
One of the illustrators that I really wanted to meet up with, was Philip Hopman. I was very lucky that I got invited at his beautiful home to paint in the front yard.
Together with Tracey English I sat down in a store and I watched her doing her thing with paper and scissors. Here you can read her answers on the 7 questions.
Today I spend my day sleeping in, painting, reading, drinking smoothies and chill around. People know me as a person with a busy schedule and here I’d like to share a little lesson about that.
In the ode to the travel buddy I told you that I recognize different types of travel buddies. This is about the planned travel buddy, with whom you’ll be prepared for the unplanned.
Very colorful illustrations make me happy and meeting the creator of these colorful creations made me very happy as well. I met Tracey English in a lovely store where we sat down to create a big paper mess on the table.
“Come back to me when the weather is getting better, then we’ll sit in the garden and draw a tree or a chicken or something”. 4 months later I sat in the sun next to him: Philip Hopman kept his word.
I travel together, I travel alone. But even alone is not alone. I always have travel buddies around and this is to all the travel buddies!
Hi, I am back! Before my little break, I went on a great adventure. Imagine a van, a dog, a cool girl and some great nature. That’s pretty much the best starter packet of a great day. I was about to get a little preview of the Creative Roadtrip experience!
Wait, are you going on a holiday? No, with ‘taking some time off’ I mean I take a step back from social media and the blog. I absolutely love spending time in this and that’s the reason I have to take a break. I’ll explain..
During my trip in London I had the privilege to meet amazing people. To keep the meetings organic and natural, I came not too over-prepared with recorder, laptop or a whole crew. I did bring the Traveling Sketchbook (of course!) and something else I brought was my Correctbook.
As I told in the blog post about the meet up with An, I spend an afternoon with animator, illustrator and film director An Vrombaut in Regents Park. Here you can read his answers to 7 questions I asked.
