CBR: There’s that truism that all children draw and at a certain point they stop.
JW: That’s true. People ask me when did I start drawing and I say, ‘When did you stop?’

Please meet “Fishy”. She is the main character in a computer game that I am illustrating and animating. Hearing researchers at UMCG (Groningen, NL) are using the game to test the way children hear sounds, and how their brains process them.
It’s a fairly simple game. Fishy has to listen to other fish who make high or low sounds. Then she needs to choose the odd one out. For every right choice Fishy gains a new friend who swims over to join her. Here are are some of those fishy friends.
