Weekly illustration on Vers Beton
‘Fresh concrete’ (Vers Beton), the online news magazine from Rotterdam, invited Roth Illustration Agency to do a weekly illustration column. Melanie Drent is a fast thinker who works with clear lines and has a humoristic style, so she was the right one for the job. Every week we define a subject together, and Melanie puts the ideas into a drawing. Title of our item is ‘Was getekend’ (was drawn), which refers to both the illustration and the message sender.
The first drawing was about ‘moestuinhipsters‘ (or vegetable garden hipsters), a new phenomenon in Rotterdam. They introduce a new kind of gardening in de urban surroundings: more ecological and sustainable, with a passion for forgotten vegetables and a different view on how we perceive and use nature. That makes for an interesting mix at the city’s gardening parks.
Stay tuned for more illustration work, coming up every Friday on Vers Beton!
