Kids modern art!
One of my four-year-old students refused to make themed collage saying that she’d like to make “my own pattern”.
Aren’t kids wonderful?
BE AWESOME. FOR MEES.
Okay Tumblr, this is your chance to do something really awesome. The young man in the photo there is called Mees, he’s almost 2 years old, he lives in the Netherlands and he has cancer.
Mees has been so brave up to now, he has a tumour that has grown from his bottom, through his pelvis to his tummy. Mees’ parents, Jan and Inge, are an amazing couple, full of positivity and love. Mees has been having treatment at his local hospital for 2 months, Mees calls it his ‘second home’, his bed on wheels is a ‘car bed’ and all the tubes and wires attached to him are antennae, Mees likes to play robots.
Things have gotten serious, and now Mees, Jan and Inge need to travel to the Florida Proton Institute in Jacksonville, Fl, USA for radiation treatment. Medical insurance is covering a lot of expenses but we (that’s all of us Tumblr, for Mees) have to raise another 30,000 Euros to cover the rest and ensure that both Jan and Inge can travel with Mees.
Mees’ father, Jan, is a member of our illustration collective The Mighty Pencil, so we have come together and launched a set of feelgood greetings cards, inspired by Mees, Jan and Inge. You can buy a pack of cards and, if you’re able, add a further donation to your order on our website.
You can find further information on the foundation for Mees on FORMEES.NL.
I know it’s been a while since our last update so let’s resume with an origin story. For an ant.

We might not have enough sun but we do have pretty serious wind over here!
The reason why I love working with kids is because their work helps me realise how imperfection goes hand in hand with beauty.

I’ve recently discovered creative network , a platform for Netherlands / Belgium based freelancers and studios. I’m so happy to see that something like this exists for creatives in Benelux (and that it’s in English!)
From now on my profile is there too :)
