Illustrations for the Kopsies series

Since early 2018 I'm the illustrator for the Kopsies books, written by René Kops. For the first three titles in this series he used stock images. Then he decided he wanted illustrations that would better fit and went looking for an illustrator. And that's how our paths crossed.

He was looking to maintain the simple, playful style from the first books. Clean lines, bright colors are key elements. The illustrations are there to help convey the meaning of the rhymes that are written to be read together. He writes the stories to make it easier to talk about difficult subjects with young children. It varies from swimming lessons, to pregnancy, to divorce. Every few months a new Kopsie comes out.

So far the following subjects were published with illustrations from me. They're only available in Dutch.

  • Pregnancy ("Ik krijg een Ukkepuk")
  • Swimming lessons
  • Selfconfidence
  • Dalton education ("Dalton doe je niet, dat ben je!")
  • Healthy eating & exercise ("Gezond het Westland rond")
  • Divorce ("Een bed bij papa en bij mama")
  • Montessori education
