I’ve been chanting this Dutch nursery rhyme in my head a lot over the past year as I walked the streets of Amsterdam with my mind on the United Kingdom – and even more so over the past couple of weeks. There are such striking parallels to current events, I felt compelled to translate and illustrate it. You’ll find the English translation at the top, and the original Dutch version follows it.

Testimonial
I approached Rachelle last year with a handful of illustration and design tasks. The brief had a two-fold nature… the technical specifications were laid out quite firmly, and these were met with absolute precision. Design-wise, a few thoughts were passed on as guidance. This is where Rachelle really shines. She has taken this latter part, met expectations, and taken it further to become an enormously artistic and well-rounded deliverable. Her artistic interpretation added astounding value to the product. A rare cross between amazing illustration capability and technical delivery. Wow.
