The making of ‘Faces on the Ferry’

We interviewed local illustrator, Rachelle Meyer, about her sketchbook project ‘Faces on the Ferry’. She told us why she started sketching the people she saw every day on her ferry commute from Amsterdam Noord to her studio in the city centre.

Short interview (4:53)

“I can just kind of stand here and … intimately doodle on the ferry.”

(Broadcast on Salto 1 TV in ‘Salto Shorts’.)

Extended interview (13:45):

“Starting Therewise Enterprises was … a way of encouraging us to make personal projects important again.”

(Broadcast on Salto TV as part of our ‘Amsterdam Startup Stories‘ series.)
