I see more and more Dutch illustrators working on American commissions!
Busy bees, we are…!
Since I started in illustration I have gotten to know the Dutch players quite well (although thankfully I still come across great new stuff every week). One person that stands out in having a delicate soft style as well as personality (at least it seems that way, since she lives quite far away I only had the pleasure of meeting her in the online world) is Marloes de Vries.
A little while ago I bought her first book (story written by Trevor Eissler): That 17t Hat. A cute story of a family on a spontaneous outing together. During this adventure at a hat store, the children get an intriguing taste of far off lands. The youngest learns from the oldest, and the oldest… well, you have to see what happens!

(am thinking… does that sound bad? delicate personality? of course i only mean this in the most positive way! like gentle/ kindhearted…)
