Illustrations for opinion magazine Elsevier Juist
These illustrations were made for an article on the lobbycracy and (ab)use of power by former politicians in the Netherlands.
I illustrated a series of three blog posts for watchdog journalism blog ‘FOLLOW the MONEY’ about an alleged corruption scandal in the purchase of over 12.000 police cars in the Netherlands, a purchase which was apparently suspiciously made in favour of Volkswagen.
visual identity for Jasper Erkens Coaching Practice
This summer I worked on a simple yet effective visual identity for Jasper Erkens - praktijk voor coaching en begeleiding, a coaching practice in Amsterdam. An illustrated visual identity was based around three questions ‘Who am I?’ ‘What do I do?’ and ‘How do I work?.’ These illustrations and the red-wine-and-mustard-colour-scheme form the basis of a print and online identity.

The return of liberalism
This illustration on the history and return of left-wing liberalism was made by Leon Mussche for the article ‘The Unstoppable return of open-mindedness’ written by Syp Wynia for opinion magazine Elsevier Juist in the Netherlands.
The hottest financial topic of today illustrated: ‘Unfresh philantropists.’
Leon Mussche Illustrated a feature article for financial watchdog blog Follow the money (Just Keeping them honest). The story ‘Unfresh Philantropists’ (it sounds better in Dutch) written by Eric Smit, names and shames the board members of a Rotterdam harbour workers pension fund, that changed the destination of one billion euros.
