Superbia





Here's the second image i made for a magazine for the management biss. It's about the seven sins of management. I'll place the first one up here again so you can see them together. Still five to go.

iphone application


Thanks to Luis Mendo i was invited to be part of his selection for the poolga application.
Being side by side with great illustrators like Tatsuro Kiuchi ( I'm a big fan of his work) Matthew Taylor ( same here) is a thrill to say the least.

New work. Split Table for food magazine


The concept of "housewines" served at restaurants being of a much higher quality than they used to be. I tried to split the image into a home inviroment and a restaurant surrounding.

Great! a few of my Gainsbourg portraits became part of the Dutch promotion flyer for the Joan Sfar movie about Gainsbourg life. Can't wait to see it. Maybe there will be a small exebhition with some samples of Joan's illustration work , Hanco Kolk and myself. I'll keep you posted about that.

friends


I received some new studiofriends from Japan the other day. Apparently the pink rabbit is the mascot from a big language school in Japan that went bankrupt this year. It seems the staff were filling their pockets with lots of Yens. That must be the reason why the rabbit is not so popular anymore.

flying emma seed


I couldn't resist uploading this picture I got from Christina Guitian. She made the staff section of the Emma children's hospital and did a wonderfull job. I will upload some pictures of her work later.
Gracias Christina!

Emma childrens hospital






Just finished a great job for the nursery section of the Emma children's hospital in Amsterdam. You will still see some people walking around and giving the final touches to the interior. The theme of the murals I made was "Hortus Botanicus" I created 8 walls with themes that can be interpreted as botanical themes and parenting themes (or parenthood) as well. For instance
"growing", "admire" and "feed". Through the whole department there are little seeds that look like babies flying around. The little seeds are also printed on transparent foil so they could be placed on the glass doors.
To accompany the flowers and plants I created some characters based on the botanical world.

snowy amsterdam


i love the snow in our street at night. Crispy muffling sounds of people walking. The snow makes the sounds of the street very clear without bouncing back it seems.

stuff that matters



In 2009 apparently the drawserge website drawserge mattered. I agree and thought it was nice of this online magazine to publish my little contribution.
