It's a trip.

FACES ON THE FERRY is a multimedia art project by illustrator Rachelle Meyer that started in a tiny sketchbook on the NDSM ferry in Amsterdam. The project grew conceptually to become not only portraits of her fellow commuters on the boat, but a chronicle of the dynamic growth and diverse population of Amsterdam Noord. Some of the original sketches have evolved into color illustrations, four for each season of the year. The goal is to present an art installation in 2019 featuring sixteen silkscreen prints alongside the film of the original sketchbook. This project has been brought to you by our creative collective, Therewise Enterprises and our Kickstarter backers. Would you like to know more or buy artwork? Write to us or visit the Etsy Shop.
