While driving back from my parents yesterday afternoon we saw a beautiful sky behind us. The sun was setting was colouring the sky a beautiful orange. The only way to photograph it was in the rearview window.

For the Sinterklaas-celebration at Lewis' school I made this big key. The children use it to open the door to 'the castle'. As could be expected the key broke into two pieces the very first day... Handmade objects are far too fragile for 4 and 5 -year olds.

My mother always wanted to fly, so finally, when turned 64 we gave her a flight in a small plane as a present. She enjoyed it very much. She saw her hometown and the region she loves so much from the sky. A really exciting experience for her!

For Mila's preschool teacher I made this memorygame. I used pictures of her classmates, symbols, children's drawing, portraits of all the teachers. I was very pleased with the result and so was the teacher!
The doodles people make during meetings always look interesting to me. I decided to use my own doodles for backgrounds etc. I used it in a design for Seyster Veste. Seyster Veste is a client of ours at Cascade, the company I work for.

This is the birthdaycard I designed for Lewis' 4th b-day. I made him a friend-book with these creature as well. I'll post that soon. The book is constantly 'on the road' travelling from one classmate to another.
For a while now I've been collecting fruitlabels. I use a small Moleskine for my little collection. While shopping for groceries I can never ignore the little printed treasures. My favourite one is the Mona Lisa. I have no idea what kind of fruit it was pasted on.

I found these designs on my computer at work. An example of how I'm sometimes able to mix my daily job and my 'home assignments'. This is a goodbye gift for an ex-colleague of mine who is now working as a freelance designer/artist.

Mila turned 7, enough reason to get behind the computer and design an invitation for her party. Fortunately the weather was well enough to celebrate her autumn-birthday in the woods at Lage Vuursche.
