Brave vegetables (Dappere groentjes)

The magic, power and ingenuity of fruits and vegetables growing and giving us their magic, power and bravery was the inspiration for my 2018 ‘Brave veggies’ calendar.

In Dutch this was “Dappere groentjes”.

For every month a new illustration. The calendar was printed on recycled postcards as a desk calendar and a big poster for a family calendar. All veggies are local heros and seasonally making their appearance in this calendar.
