Soldaat van Oranje for Filmfanfare

Finally Filmfanfare was presented yesterday. The first copy was presented to the famous Dutch actress Willeke van Ammelrooy. Now I can show you my contribution to the book. I have made a movie poster and a comic page on 'Soldaat van Oranje', directed by Paul Verhoeven. On the poster I've used the famous scene of main character Erik (Rutger Hauer): in black tie on a motorbike.
To put a movie in one comic page is not an easy job. I have chosen to draw a combination of scenes. In the centre you can see the well known scene of the six student-friends. Around it a key-scene of every main character. All in grayish full color. In the background: 'Scheveningen' beach by night -in warm grey- when Erik lands to get in contact with a resistance group.
Filfanfare is published by Oog & Blik / de Bezige Bij.
