Roosroos uitgevers

Last tuesday I was asked to make digital caricatures of the employees of Roosroos publishers, at a place that was kind of strange at first but turned out to be very cosy in the end.
They were having a new office built and it was a ceremonial day, the last pile was driven into the ground.
This is very normal over here. Holland (the western part, near the sea) is in fact nothing more than a big swamp. The only way you can prevent buildings to sink in the ground is to drive hundreds of piles, all 20, 30 metres high into the ground, and on these piles it's possible to built something. And in the midst of this ceremony I had to do my job. Wow. But it was fun and everybody had a great time. And that's what matters.

It's really cool to see your digital setup! Very clever letting the subject see the drawing in progress and excellent results.

I love your live work because of the fast, decisive energy you capture. Don't ever lose that.

Wow, Marion, that is a very interesting reason for a party!
I particularly like how you combined the blonde eyebrows with the dark under-eye bags on the first guy. They're all full of your usual vitality!
