kakkerlakje - after the age of 80

‘Kakkerlakjes’ (little roaches) form a series of illustrated booklets which can be send to others as a present or to keep for yourself. The series is an initiative of publisher Loopvis.

I had the honor to illustrate the beautiful story ‘Na je tachtigste’ (after the age of 80) by Ricus van de Coevering. The booklet tells the story of a father and son looking for a tree where the father once carved a heart. It’s a story about aging, letting go and finding new love. 

The booklet is available in Dutch local bookstores and the Kakkerlakjes webshop.
