Unicef

During the climate change conference in Marrakech, UNICEF was launching their campaign about air pollution and its effects on children’s health. Me and other artists made illustrations to raise awareness about the impact of climate change, it’s one of the biggest killers of children under the age of 5. The time for climate action is now!

Our Asian adventure, part 4

21-09-2016

The adventure Dave and I started 6 months ago has come to an end. We’ve visited little parts of the Maldives, India, Nepal, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and the United Arab Emirates. Little parts, because I think we’ve only seen a glimpse from the countries we travelled through. I have an idea about the country, their food and it’s nature, but I definitely need the come back. My third blogpost was written in a little village in Cambodia, this last blogpost I write at the kitchen table back in the Netherlands. From Cambodia we took the plane to Java Indonesia, where we did a climb up the volcanos Bromo and Ijen. I never saw a volcano before in my life, looking over the little border of this impressive big mountain with smoke coming out of the earth. There was a constant sound of a train passing by and I might felt a little bit scared. From Java we traveled to the islands Bali, Lombok, Gili Air and back to Bali, where we spent our last 3 weeks of this trip. While Dave was diving and planting baby coral (it’s a living animal, not a plant, thought this was very interesting) I made sketches in the sun. In the third blogpost I was telling you about how I was forcing myself to get inspired, and that it wasn’t working that well. I don’t know how or why, but in these last weeks I got inspired. We did some beach-clean-ups with Trash Hero and stayed at a beautiful bamboo resort in the middle of Bali. After a few days in Dubai we flew back home. It was a beautiful trip and I’ve learned so many things, I can not wait to get back to my drawing-table. But first, I need to find a new workspace and home!

Our Asian adventure, part 3

20-07-2016

Before we left to the other side of the world, I was certain I was going to work while traveling. Making sketches underneath a mango tree, doing projects in commission and keeping my Instagram account alive. We are on the road for almost 4 months now and as you maybe can see in this blogpost, it’s pretty difficult to work. In the beginning I was forcing myself to make a lot of sketches, because well, that was the main reason why I left. New adventures and new inspiration for new work. In the first blogpost I uploaded many sketches, now there is only one and a half sketch. While traveling I figured out that it’s difficult to look for busses, trains, airplanes, finding healthy vegetarian food, visiting inspiring places, but also try to see the local things. Living in nature with animals, but also have access to electricity and internet, and then trying to get some work done. I’ve probably thought to easy about that part. But that’s ok, all the beautiful things we’ve seen these last 4 months I will take with me home, to my illustration-table. They will come to fruition later.

Back to the adventure. I had an amazing yoga-retreat while Dave was meditated for 10 days with monks (see his video about this experience here). While traveling I’m often on the limit or outside of my comfort-zone and in this retreat I learned these are the best moments in life, it’s where the magic happens. Making the unknown me a little bit more known. Next stop was Seoul Korea, where Dave opened a recycling center and after a week we went to Vietnam. Such an amazing country, friendly people and beautiful nature. After every bus ride the landscape changes, city, dessert, forrest, mountains and rice fields. While I write this post I’m in Cambodia, in a little eco village where I had my first swim in a natural swimmingpool and loved it, make you wonder why these aren’t more common. Two more months of inspiration to go!
