I was asked by Dutch book trade magazine ‘BoekBlad’ to do an illustration to accompany an article about what went wrong in the music industry.
The current book market can learn from the mistakes that the traditional music industry made: after the success of the CD they behaved arrogantly, did not prepare for the new digital revolution and made itself successfully needless.

My father Huub Slabbers, 1910-2002, was a multi-tasking artist. Between 1955 and 1975 his main activity was writing and illustrating children’s books for the international market. After ‘escaping’ school I was his assistent for several years and we worked together on illustration projects. When I look at the Peter and Pat series my flower power influences seem rather obvious.

Below: Also a small selection of my ‘Saul Steinberg The New Yorker Cover Collection’ is an important part of the show.
This was the famous Saulberg quote used to promote this show on the website, invitation etc.:
‘People who see a drawing in the New Yorker will think automatically thats it’s funny because it is a cartoon. If they see it in a museum, they think it’s artistic; if they find it in a fortune cookie they think it’s a prediction.’ – Saul Steinberg…
Dutch Design! When walking in the streets of the beautiful old city of Deventer, the Netherlands I looked down and saw this great typographic solution for a manhole cover. It’s not signed but an internet search learned that is was designed by ‘Buro BplusB’ as part of a complete street renovation plan for the city. http://www.bplusb.nl/?project=binnenstad-deventer

I sent this drawing some years ago to accompany a new years gift to my Saul Steinberg-friend Sheila. She was probably expecting Champagne but inside she found a rare (empty) bottle of 1983 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild, with a label illustration by Saul Steinberg, that I found on eBay.
‘Nature Morte / Still Life’. Painting by Caroline Maurel, a contemporary French painter who lives near Paris and creates great paintings with an extreme level of detail. Many of Caroline’s works are based on Barbie and Ken and other plastic characters that surround our modern lives and show us their other or darker side.
This particular painting is a still life of the famous Barbie Dinner Table Set. It is on the Slabbers’ Dining Room Wall now! When people see it for the first time it usually takes some time before they realise that this is not painted ‘a bit out of proportion’, but that they are actually looking at Barbie proportions.
As Caroline Maurel states on her website: “Les jouets font l’Art”.
