About the author
Hello! My name is Merel. In a different life I would've loved to have my own radio show in the morning or play the drums every night. Instead I became an illustrator & designer. I love drawing, talking and going to museums. If you like my work:

Fortnightly drawings about the daily life in Amsterdam. People going to work, hipsters crying about what choices to make, men living the dream on De Wallen or lost tourists in front of the Anne Frank House.

I know, so cliché, but I looooove Christmas! So the next two days I’ll be in my own ‘family & dinner bubble’. I will set my alarm at 8.00 am to go outside and build a friendly weird snowman – unfortunately this year won’t be a white Christmas, so I’ll probably be building my man with something else, maybe fruit?

Also I will spend my days desperately surfing the internet, trying to find the best reindeer sweater. I have a dozen hanging in my closet, but I’m still looking for that special one. For €300,- I hired a Santa, who’ll follow me for two days straight. He told me I can sit on his lap and he will massage my feet. And last but not least, I’m shooting a music video for Home Alone’s soundtrack. I’ll show it to you next week.

Have a happy cliché Christmas! X
