Merel’s Mind: First day of spring!

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.

Last week it felt like the first week of spring. Everybody thinks 16 degrees is fair enough and acts like summer is there. I was cycling through Westerpark and got an instant summer feeling. I saw selfies filled with grass, a shiny funfair, people wearing sunglasses and a lot of sunblock (oh please, don’t exaggerate). So I did a little research, drew the map of Westerpark and created a data visualization by counting all the things I saw. All these things combined are… the first day of spring!
