This blog post describes my preparation for my first exposition, in a local library in Nijmegen. You can read about the exposition itself here.

Part one: April 4

I’m so excited! My first exposition is coming up. If you are in the neighbourhood, you can visit an exposition of my children’s book illustrations in the local library, Bibliotheek Hatert, from next week onwards. Last week I’ve been busy collecting all kinds of props (mostly stuffed animals) and getting my artwork ready for the printer.

Here’s a sneak preview:

Part two: April 9

Yesterday I went to the city centre and bought a huge folder for transporting the printed illustrations for the exposition. The folder is large enough for A2 poster prints (75 cm x 53 cm) and it even has a handle so I can take it with me on my bike — although I must say that cycling with the folder gave me the impression I was kite-surfing through the streets of Nijmegen.
Next, I visited the printer and had all the smaller prints (A3 and A4) printed on beautiful glossy card stock! The two larger A2 posters I already printed on the A0 poster printer at the university.
