1. Brussels Airport Luchtvaartdag

    Made this 3m bilingual info wall for Brussels Airport,  just after flying in from Copenhagen last week.

    Luckily I already had a whole passenger’s list and crew from my previous books, but this image had to contain a lot of information about the airport, in 2 languages, to be integrated ‘interactively’.

    So we came up with these illustrated magnetic flying saucers of about 20cm diameter…

    No surprise to me what the average passenger buys in Belgium;-)

    But did you already know there are about 100000 bees at the airport? (haven’t seen’m yesterday)

    The discs had to be hung on the right spot in this multi situational composition. Fun for the family!

    Our little Encyclopedia Otto-biografica seems to be making it’s way to the different parts of the world that it’s actually illustrating… After English, French, German and several Scandinavian editions last year, we’re very happy to announce – to 1/3d of the world! – a brand new Spanish translation:

    cover-ESP

    The editor expected troubles with symbols & words in & around the Spanish flag on the end papers,

    end-papers

    so- since we don’t have a problem with otto-censorship – we swiftly came up with something new (after visiting a most interesting & otto-didactic Picasso-Giacometi exhibition last year in Paris).

    No more bull fighting; no dog or goat, but a pig! Hope Catalans & muslims won’t feel offended…

    Luckily the Hungaro ring above wasn’t an issue in Buda nor Pest. Here’s my Magyar post:

    cover-HO

    We double-czeched the 2 below; seems Czechs & Slowaks will have Otto in common from now on.

    cover-CSECH-SLOVAK

    And last, but not least: the Swedish contribution (in local bookstores by the end of May)

    cover-SVE
