Faces on the Ferry

Since the beginning of 2017, I’ve taken a small sketchbook with me on the NDSM ferry, which travels from my home in Amsterdam Noord to the center, where I have my studio. I made portraits of fellow commuters quickly in pencil during the 12 minute ride, then completed it with fineliners and occasionally with marker as a warm up in the mornings with a cup of coffee. It became a series that I shared on Instagram called #facesontheferry. This has been such a precious and interesting record for me, we also made a short film of it for our creative collaborative, Therewise Enterprises.

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.
