Sail Amsterdam

Sail Amsterdam is a big nautic event which takes place every 5 years in the harbour of Amsterdam, and I was lucky to be part of it. I had to draw digital caricatures for Econosto, and it was fun! Sun, water, and many, many boats!

My working area that day: The Thalassa!



Look at those sailors!


...and some more sailors.

It was crowded with boats on Het IJ.
It's a game of seeing and being seen as you can see.

Thijs van Leer (famous dutch flutist) bumped into our ship and started playing a 'happy birthday' tune because we had a birthday girl on board.

Thank you guys! This really was a great experience, boats and water (and caricatures ofcourse) are a great combination.

geweldig met Thijs van Leer.
Net als Hanzz kom ik als 50-er ook uit het Focus tijdperk.
Ik had nog wat LP's meegenomen om te laten signeren :)
