JONG & FRIJ
Just be honest. Sometimes life is just a messy shit-show. And nothing better than to share your own shit with somebody and make something out of it. Well, that's exactly what I am doing with my friend (and visual artist) Dilys de Jong.
Since 2007, we form the sistercompany Jong&Frij, and we create cartoons and illustrations based on our own lives. Recognise the busy blonde with the twins? It's me. And the daydreaming artist? There we have Dilys. We created (childrens) books & calenders, and published specific cartoons on International Cooperation ( the Dutch cartoon 'Wereldburgers'). From mid 2007 till spring 2019, we published our daily cartoon 'Jong&Frij'( formerly known as 5x30+) in the national Dutch newspaper 'De Telegraaf’, every day on page 4. This means we have an amount of 4000+ cartoons on the shelve, some of which we published in books or were animated for national television.
We sell our original cartoonwork, and create tailor-made English or Dutch cartoons on request, with, for example,
you as the main character.
We offer creative workshops in which you and your group learn to make great cartoons (about yourselves or each other),
in just a day-part or a day.
And, finally, The best collection of 11 3/4 years of Jong&Frij cartoons will find its form in a beautiful book in October 2020.
