Penguins in bikinis, a piggy bank made from a plastic bottle or the Mona Lisa enjoying a piece of cake.
You may be thinking, what do these things have to do with each other? They are all editorial illustrations of my project “Dagklad. I tried to capture people’s attention and make them curious. Dagklad is a collection of experimental editorial illustrations. A journey through time where I address different topics that have been in the news in the past six months. Some you may even recognize!
As a creator, I’ve always been very curious. I want to know what is happening around me. During an “editorial illustration” workshop, I found out that I am very interested in portraying news articles. This also aligned well with the way I like to work, creating illustrations quickly with tight deadlines.
