my cartoon in the newspaper!


I've had work printed on clothes and greeting cards, but this is the first time a caricature of mine is published in a newspaper! The article is about people drinking alcohol on television and the effects that showing all this drinking can have on the average consumption of alcohol, and was published in de Gelderlander, De Stentor and perhaps even more newspapers.
The illustration shows 4 characters of the well-known dutch series "Gooische Vrouwen", which deals with the day to day life of 4 rich and spoilt women in Het Gooi. I think that neighbourhood can best be compared with Beverly Hills in the States, Brasschaat in België and the french Cote d'Azur.

Can't believe it's your first publication illustration Marion----either it's a very tough market there or you haven't been sending them promos!

Either way here's hoping it leads to more---especially deserving is your caricatures...

oxoxoxo----Zach
