Het Bloedhuis (The 'bloody' house) is a mystery story for children aged 8-12 years old about the owner of a red house in the pristine neighbourhood that might be doing very scary things in his basement.
This mystery story flirting a bit with horror themes was loads of fun to make to come alive through the illustrations.

Designing a world
Once again, the illustration challenge of this book was to create a believable world and relatable designs for the cast of characters. The structure of the book is very picture heavy - two small illustrations per page - so illustrating this book was almost like drawing a storyboard for a film.
