For the courageous, kind, softspirited Lineke. She gave birth to a beautiful babyboy called Siem (also my sisters nickname). Lineke and her boyfriend Niels were the easiest going clients ever. So nice to work with them. Siem, with so much hair and two amazing parents. Love Marike.

Ben's mom Sanne I've know for almost 25 years. She was a cheerful and delightful teenager. Full of smiles and giggles. When she called me to tell about her the birth of her son Ben she over the moon. it was completely the same Sanna as I've ever know but intenstity of her laugh was intense. Beautiful Ben. I wish you and your lovely family so much love and laughter. And thanks for the lovely, modest job of making the card. Marike.

Nrc.Next last week

It's such a lovely summer, nice weather, meeting my friends for summerdrinks, doing yoga, and picking berries. My life lingers away in a calm and kind way. And I'm working. On various cool jobs. Birth-announcements, work for new clients, work for old clients, I'm enjoying them all.
I was going to spend 6 weeks in Cornwall but that fell through, and I was a quite gutted about it. So I stayed home, and I'm having a great summer in Amsterdam instead.
The unexpected can be such a blessing in disguise.

Woohooo! I've made it to a dutch womens-magazine. I always wanted to illustrate a romantic, corny story about love, relations falling apart, etc. Opposed to all the more hardcore journalism articles that I usually work on....

This is one of these days that I'm really proud of the work I do. (you have to, sometimes no, be proud at yourself and the work your do?)
