Nrc de week publication

NRC Media publishes a weekly magazine called the Nrc de Week, where you as a Dutchman can subscribe on if you live abroad. I illustrated the article about the bad state the Dutch education system is in called "De grote verdomming". The illustrations are also small on the front page. It is a pretty dark topic to make illustrations for. I wanted to be respectful of the themes addressed in the editorial spread. The children are playing happily but you can see in their minds that their math is off. The adult on the right represents the consequences of having his mind be underdeveloped. The illustrations are serious but also suggestive enough in their visual style that it compels a reader to want to read the article to find out more about these strange illustrations.
