Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert for Trouw

Okay, what do you do? You have this idea, the deadline is in 3 hours and you find out that Photoshop won't allow you to edit any banknotes?

You gotta draw your own money.

As happened when Trouw asked me to portrait the Dutch Minister of Defense, Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert. 

The story behind it:

Despite a small budget, Dutch troops help out in many international missions. Unfortunately all conflicts involve a weak opponent. What happens if the Dutch low-budget army has to stand against awell trained, professionally equipped troops? 

Some criticize Hennis-Plasschaert for not fighting for a higher budget. As long as there is no major conflict erupting, she's done everything right.
