Divorce inducing vacations

This one I made for an article on vacations and what havoc they can wreak on your marriage. The text says something like "Sun, sea & sand were the last straw".  Actually in Dutch the saying is "the last drop" coming from "the drop that makes the bucket overflow".
Writer Berthold Gunster surprised me by far preferring my sketches over my finished illustrations. I've sketch-illustrated a whole book of his called "Ik ben oke, jij bent een sukkel". Which translates as something like "I'm ok, you are a moron". Although the title suggests differently, this book is actually about how to get along with (difficult) people. Recently Berthold published a new book, Omdenken. I've done a couple of new sketches for it. You can see & buy the books here.

Postponing sport indefinitely

An article on postponing sports till tomorrow...or the day after.
"Once again she opted for a solid game of mental exercise." 

The little follow-up.

Trek de agenda!

En ik heb de flyer ontworpen.
Romeo Delta presenteert op 21 november: Tweedehands.
De Unie, Mauritsweg 34
Zaal open 20.00u - aanvang 20.30u
Entree € 5,- BNO leden en studenten € 3,-
Reserveren niet mogelijk.
Hippe vintage, Found Footage of een tas gemaakt van je kat. Re-use, recycle en hergebruik.
De volgende Romeo Delta avond (noteer maar vast 21 november, zelfde tijd zelfde plaats) gaan we niet op zoek naar het tweede leven van de eierdoos of lege wc-rol maar juist die van fotografie, autoband, video of ieder ander denkbaar materiaal.
Creatief met kurk maar dan 2.0...

Plaswijck Park. Don't forget to wash your hands.

A quick cross-post from Ikrotterdam. A few weeks ago I visited Plaswijck park for the first time and it was nicer than I thought It'd be. Apart from all the playgrounds they actually have a little zoo with monkeys, huge owls, otters and, as pictured, Guinea Pigs. The sign says "Petting Guinea Pigs is allowed but: Don't pick them up. Don't walk in their residence. Don't feed. Thanks! Don't forget washing your hands."

No more sex

This one is in Vrouw magazine right now, it's for an article on couples who are not having sex anymore.
"No dear, let's wait until the children leave home."
