Interview with Makii

What is your greatest achievement?
Idris: Starting with Makii, and to see children play with our designs, creating their own dream adventures!
Mielo: Definitely Makii! It's so cool to see little kids pointing at silly characters we've created and see them laugh! Yihaa!
How would you describe your work/style to someone who hadn't seen it?
I: Cheerful, and full of colours that will make your eyes explode!
M: Quirky and funny, full of characters that tell little stories, for instance about throwing pyjama-parties with giants! Or about playing hide and seek with elephants!
What piece of advice would you give your 15 year old self?
I: Do whatever you feel is right, like cartwheeling to school. 
M: Rock your grandma's hand-knitted sweater and dance with the ladies all…..night….long! (repeat: all niiigghht)
When are you happiest?
I: When I'm working with my hands, for example painting a mural full of flamingo's or silkscreening a new print.
M: While creating new designs, shaking my bottom on beats by Siriusmo!
What is the worst job you have had?
I: Delivering magazines on my bicycle in the rain. It rains a lot in the Netherlands, you see.
M: Never had a really shitty job, to be honest. I once had a summer job in a sheltered workshop, putting welding masks together. The job self wasn't too cool, but surrounded by these cool people we made lots of fun!  
Who would play you in the movie of your life? 
I: Every random Bollywood actor alive.
M: Tom Cruise obviously, many people would agree -nudge, nudge, wink, wink!
What is your karaoke song?
I: The Guru, 'Chori Chori',
M: Hard to decide, 'No Limit' by 2 Unlimited
v=oKnwHAGXvlE or 'Stop the war,' by Speak
v=WIf7_ZDGSHQ- real deep!
What 5 things can't you live without?
I: The usual: Coffee, girlfriend, Wacom, fixed gear, and friends & family.
M: My girlfriend serving coffee with a Wacom tablet, while riding a home trainer in front of
my friends & family.
What is the greatest invention of all time? 
I: The animation series, Adventure Time. I wish I invented it, it's..just..MATHEMETICAL!
M: The Super(b) Nintendo 16 bit, especially the game 'Double Dragon,' - did you see those
tough guys wear uggs?
If you didn't do what you do, what would you do?
I: I would problaby be a grey haired biologist with a love for bugs.
M: Rule the world by selling a machine that can fold underwear- just because it rhymes on
my last name (pouwer- 'onderbroekenvouwer').
Here is a short movie of the boys at work
