Rothuizen is best known for The Soft Atlas, a collection of drawn maps in which he not only draws and describes what is there, but also what he thinks, feels and suspects. The stories he tells about places in his work can be read like maps, without a fixed beginning or end.

His drawings appear monthly in the Volkskrant, a national  Dutch newspaper,  and in book form. Recently, a drawing by Rothuizen about Heerlen appeared in the Volkskrant. In 2011 he made a drawing in Hoensbroek. Both drawings are on display in the showcase.

Rothuizen's work has been shown in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, in Cairo and in the New Museum, the MOMA in New York.
