We quote a specialist from the Rijksmuseum Twenthe, which holds a large collection of Akkerman's works: "Lijnen en rasters zijn nooit ‘strak’, maar eerder tastend en zoekend. De tekeningen worden opgebouwd uit verschillende lagen die later deels worden weggeschuurd en gegumd. Door het vele veranderen krijgt het witte papier een enigszins rul oppervlak en een lichtgrijze toon."
