Remember Arent’s geboortekaartje?

Well, my friends Lea and Jasper now have a second little boy! I’ve been asked once again to create a little geboortekaartje for Seger, who arrived on 13th May, about three weeks sooner than expected!


Pencil, charcoal, ink and gouache on Strathmore grey toned paper, 120 mm diameter.

Lea and her family are moving to a new home by the sea, and both this and Seger’s name suggested a watery theme. In the midst of the #MerMay challenge last month, Both Lea and I independently hit upon the same idea: an illustration of a merboy.

Congratulations again, Lea and Jasper! Welcome, Seger!
