Portrait of André Kuipers

Our new Dutch hero.

This is a portrait of our new national hero, André Kuipers.
I tried to give the illustration the look and feel of an old trading card.
This way i could emphasise his hero-like status.

From Wikipedia:
André Kuipers: born 5 October 1958 is a Dutch physician and ESA astronaut. He became the second Dutch citizen, third Dutch-born and fifth Dutch-speaking astronaut upon launch of Soyuz TMA-4 on 19 April 2004. Kuipers returned to Earth aboard Soyuz TMA-3 11 days later.
Kuipers is the first Dutch astronaut to return to space. On 5 August 2009, Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs Maria van der Hoeven, announced Kuipers was selected as an astronaut for International Space Station (ISS) Expeditions 30 and 31. He was launched to space on 21 December 2011 and returned to Earth on 1 July 2012.
