For quite a number of years I have been the illustrator for Dutch sign-language company Gebaren.nl. Part of their services is KidSigns, which specialises in teaching children sign-language.

Summer 2019 we brought the first of our activity books to the Bruna in Rijen, The Netherlands! (note: the champagne in the vlog is kids’ lemonade champagne – Jip en Janneke champagne-…no alcohol was involved in the vlog…or even in the making of the books!)

In the beginning of 2017 we published our first picture book!  Written by Fons Fluitman and illustrated by me, called “Tim zoekt een walvis” (Tim is searching for a whale)

cover Tim 600dpi

Try some signs from the book! (swimming, donkey and rabbit)

The presentation was a great success, the kids loved it!
