Borgerblad

I made this illustration about my neighborhood Borgerhout (BoHo, as the locals call it) in Antwerp for the 2018 winter edition of Borgerblad, the local newspaper. It’s a really great project that tries to both inform and pull together our district, which doesn’t have the best of reputations yet the kindest people and a lot of spirit.

The model used is my five year old offspring, bound to strict portrait privacy because the internet is the one circle of hell Dante foolishly forgot to mention.
