Kakkerlakje - After the age of 80

The 'Kakkerlakjes' (little roaches) form a series of illustrated booklets which can be send to others as a present or to keep for yourself. The series is an initiative of publisher Loopvis.


I had the honor to illustrate the beautiful story 'After the age of 80' by Ricus van de Coevering. The booklet tells the story of father and son looking for a tree into which the father once carved a heart. It's a story about aging, letting go and finding new love. 

The booklet is available in Dutch local bookstores and the Kakkerlakjes webshop.
