Cartoon Illustration: Serious Fun

by Laughing Stock on April 14, 2011

Our man in Amsterdam, and esteemed colleague, Ronald Slabbers takes his cartoon work very seriously indeed. Ronald says, “I am definitely not a born cartoonist. I am a ‘line constructor’ and creating a drawing takes me at least 2 sleepless nights and about 6 to 20 pencil sketches. “

Among his many clients is the well respected Dutch Financial Daily, for whom he produces a weekly illustration for their Saturday edition.

“The first few months I was really horrified by the thought of it, only just recently I found the peace of mind that gives me the confidence of being able to produce an original drawing from every idea or thought.”

Hereʼs the  “cartoon” aspect of Ronaldʼs work that takes on the cultural, political, and financial landscape to poke some serious fun at it all.
