My son is an avid Donald Duck Magazine reader. It is one of the most popular magazines in The Netherlands, and still going strong after 65 years. My dad read the Donald Duck, I read it and now my son is reading it. They had a competition to celebrate their 65th birthday. You could win a trip to Disneyland Paris for 65 persons. You had to come up with a ride for Disneryland Paris. My son Job came with the idea of a soapbox race. We discussed if he should draw something himself or if I should make something nice. He wanted me to design the plan…in the hope for raising our chances. But we did not win, and we did not even get a consolation prize….Maybe he should have made it himself. I had great fun making this design, which turned out great, with a very nostalgic feel about it.
