Martien van Agtmaal, one of the editors of digital cultural magazine De Optimist, asked me around the beginning of October if I'd like to make an illustration for the poem 'so this is my wilderness' by Lilian van Ooijen. The poem evokes several surreal images, among which are the union of a passion fruit and a dripping quince, a licorice key and sedimentary rock formations. It can now be read (in Dutch) on the website of De Optimist, by clicking here.
