Kees and Kas the Fireboys!
Late last year I had the great pleasure of illustrating a Dutch children’s book by the author Pedro Dubislav. Called Kees en Kas De Brandweer Jongens, the book tells the story of twin boys who dream of becoming firefighters. Unfortunately their exploits lead not to glory but to chaos, exploding water bombs and drenched barbecues. Thankfully they are pretty adorable boys and all is forgiven of course.
I made a total of 17 illustrations for the story, some small images to sit alongside text and a collection of larger full page illustrations. It was a real pleasure to watch the boys come alive and I think my style of drawing lent itself well to the vision Pedro had for his story.
