Puzzles drawn by Rob Derks
Rob Derks is part of the Jan van Haasteren studio. Rob Derks (born 1974 in Nijmegen) lives with his girlfriend and three children in Nijmegen. He has now drawn quite a number of puzzles for the Jan van Haasteren Studio. In addition to the drawings he makes for the Jan van Haasteren Studio, Rob also makes his own puzzles for Jumbo, called “Pieces of History”. As the name says, in these puzzles you see elements from history.
Rob Derks founded the drawing studio 'Studio Noodweer' with a number of other artists. Among other things, he draws comics for companies and T-shirts for music bands. Rob contacted Jan van Haasteren very early in his drawing career. And thanks to Jan, Rob gets excited about drawing for puzzles. And from Jan Rob learns the technique of coloring with ecoline. In 2013 Jan asks Rob if he wants to join Studio Jan van Haasteren and he does.
