Cosmic Perspective

Tsjisse worked on this weekly series for the Volkskrant, accompanying Tim Franssen’s column ‘the Zorkianen’. The columns took a look at humanity from the perspective of aliens, what judgment would hyperintelligent and benevolent beings pass on us if they had the chance?

The Wonder of Weert

Jan created a series of illustrations for the NRC to accompany a long read by Freek Schravesande. In 1949 Mathieu Jacobs saw the Virgin Mary standing by a tree in Weert, Limburg. Tens of thousands of people flocked to that place. 70 years later it is still unclear what actually happened that Sunday evening and the year that followed.


Kalle has been working with the UKrant, the independent news platform for the University of Groningen, since 2016. Regularly contributing illustrations to accompany their articles about everything from exam fraud to the effects of covid on education.
