A buyer of greeting cards from the ColourFlux Shop wanted a larger version of the illustrations of birds with nests for on the wall. After a little check to see if the illustrations were suitable for printing in larger size, I went right to work with them. I was able to make two nice framed prints of the dunnock and chiffchaff with nest.
By the end of 2022, I did another fun commision – a digital Christmas card for the company Purive. I haven’t done any digital illustrations for a while, so a good time to pick it up again.
After a two-month break, I continued with the long-distance trail the Trekvogelpad (Migration birds trail) at the end of February 2021. Via a small detour through Zaanse Schans, I pick up the official trail just outside Wormer. After this I follow the trail through the Engewormer polder, the Jagersveld and the Oostzanerveld to the Twiske nature reserve and recreational area. Halfway through the Twiske, I stop my hike and take the bus back home from Den Ilp.
This is the report of a part of the long distance Migration Birds trail (Trekvogelpad). In this part, I hike from De Rijp to Wormerveer in the Netherlands.
In this article I describe two projects in which digital illustrations have been used.
