Times have changed. Now there is money. You do not have to work anymore as a butcher to survive. In this first episode Anthon tells us how it feels to sit stinking in art class and taking a shower once a week. Growing up in a time, when people did not know what graphic design is, where you were not allowed to do what you wanted to do.
And then his father finds out through the local newspapers that his son’s painting are already hanging in the Stedelijk museum. Time to leave the house, and find out yourself what this world is about.
