Some rather unexpected commissions from Dutch illustrator Merijn Hos

When I see someone’s work and automatically create sound effects for it in my head, I know it’s super special. I’ve always felt like that for Dutch illustrator Merijn Hos’ work, and I tend to I hear trombones and comedy parps, whistles and one-man-bands when I peer at his celebratory, fruity characters. In his more subdued work such as his latest wooden sculptures for Kinfolk, you can hear someone playing a cello in a room a few doors down a corridor. His ability to hop like a happy frog from brand to brand, creating work that is totally different but perfect for each one is evidence of his genius as a commercial artist. Who else do you know who would get away with that drawing he did for corporate, slick sound company Bose?
