Book illustration – Neerwaarts Nederland

The tulips in this illustration are taken from this photo.

I made a book cover design for the book with the name Neerwaarts Nederland, by Maurits Falkenreck. The book is about the experiences of a successful entrepreneur. Maurits has been active in politics, business and society at large. He describes how a sick political ecosystem is at the heart of many of the problems in The Netherlands.

Two videos are published. related to the same theme of the Political EcoSystem focused on Covid-19 and Immigration.

This were my first digital illustrations made in ProCreate on my iPad Pro. The layout and design is done by Aspekt Publishing.

The first illustration is made within 2:30 hours with Sketch (I would now use Affinity Designer for this work). It could be done that effectively as the communication was excellent and the customer knew what he wanted but left all the creativity up to me.

In a previous post called “Politics” I wrote about how reading and talking about this influenced my creative process negatively. Now I have turned this topic into a positive thing: yeah!
