My colleague Mars Gremmen won the prize for best children's comic and Maaike Hartjes was awarded the special prize for her entire works.



Benno Hulsing

I can't resist it, I'll go brag about my son Benno. This year he started to make one drawing a day and posts them on Instagram. He's 11 years old, quite cool. The drawings are accompanied by pretty weird and beautiful texts. That Black and white one is a portrait he did of an uncombed, unshaven me on a way too early saturday morning.







NRC Handelsblad - illustrations



















Illustration for a review of Harry Mulisch' posthumously published book De ontdekking van Moskou (The discovery of Moscow), dealing with a writer hiding in a ruin writing about a writer who writes about a writer - ad infinitum.

Arrived on my doorstep the same day - Oeverloos - a newspaper in comic form about the North of Amsterdam, where I spend all of my childhood so I could make this comic as an expert.




Box of books

My new book! Smells and feels good. It'll be in stores on April 24. De Aanslag (The Assault), based on a classic Dutch novel by Harry Mulisch.

Illustration for Schokkend Nieuws to accompany a little article on a short scifi film called Baardmos (Usnea) by Kim Kokosky Deforchaux.
