Client: Ps Parool
The Parool asked me to illustrate an article about Holland Casino and the fact that despite their attempt to sell themselves as a glamorous Las Vegas party type casino, they are actually full of lonely depressing gamblers. Basically, they are fallen glory, they are going down!
I decided to empty my hoover and throw some dust on a castle of cards. To represent an abandoned place. But because I had used miniature cards to build the castle, it looked all of a sudden like a 9/11 type explosion in a building. A dramatic and pleasant visual surprise!
