In memoriam Sieb Posthuma

On the 3rd of August Dutch illustrator Sieb Posthuma
didn't see no longer the light in his life...

unbelievable...



This afternoon I visited his exhibition 'een vijver vol inkt' (a pool full of ink) in the Kinderboekenmuseum Den Haag. A very inspiring exhibition, full with color, lightness, humor and beautiful work. Such a great talent...




He has made many nice works, books, theater costumes and decors. It is really very nice to see all his work together in this exhibition. A strange feeling to know he is not with us anymore.

unbelievable....




I bought a  book about his life written by Joukje Akveld. You can still vist the exhibition till September. If you have a chance: go!!

Thank you, Sieb Posthuma!

Ik heb ook dit zelfde boek gekocht. Hij één van m'n favoriete illustrators. Zo jammer dat hij er niet meer is.
