Weidegangfeest 2012

There's a new tradition in Holland: het Weidegangfeest. It's when the cows, after a dark and cold winter go outside and graze in the meadow. They hop and dance and people come looking and everybody is happy. Except for the cows, because a farmer told me that it isn't the cold that cows hate, but wind. And it sure was windy last Sunday at the Weidegangfeest 2012 in Aarle-Rixtel...
I was asked to make cartoons for the ZLTO, an agricultural organization. The purpose was to develop a dialogue between farmers and people from the city/villages. Between the rain showers I managed to finish a dozen of cartoons, of which a selection can be seen here...

The cows in this cartoon have stagefreight.
There are many children who believe that milk comes from a plant. This farmer is showing little Billy the real story...
 Inside joke for dutch people. Waai means blow.
 From the back these cows look like gigantic pigs!
 The result of a few hours work.

Ofcourse little goats and lambs give you a genuine feeling of spring.

FIBO 2012

I do a lot of trade shows, and most of the time the theme is something technical, or communicative, or something else boring. BUt this time I had to perform at the FIBO 2012, Europe's biggest show for fitness and bodybuild equipment, foods, clothes, supplements etc. Some freak show!! A spectacle of seeing and being seen...
 
 Weird banner!

cartoons for 'Mijn Duurzaamheid"

The University of Wageningen has been organising meetings for farmers, to discuss about the concept of durability for their farms. Hugo and I were asked to make cartoons about their plans and ideas. No need to tell you they were all cattle farmers!

cartoon or caricature?

These cartoons were made 3 months ago, during a seminar. I was asked to make a caricature of the guest-speakers while they were speaking, and the drawing shold reflect the setting and show them as they were speaking to the audience. So this was pretty exciting, because it was a big audience, and the subject was very far, and the halls quite dark.
