I had the honour to make a Paris fashionweek cluedo boardgame for Elle magazine. This time the suspects are a bunch of well known fashion designer's. The weapons are easily found in any fashion designer's handbag and the locations are all over Paris. You can download the cards and board here. But better even is to buy the magazine so you can see the printed result. Enjoy the game!

Good news today from Opera. They have been nominated for the Emma children's hospital in the category 'spacial' best interior. It's the interior of the children's hospital were the drawings for the walls were made by Christina Guitan and myself ( see older entry) On the 22dn of Oktober, an international jury will select one winner in each category. Very exciting news indeed. Let's hope Opera walks away with the grand price.
The cookbook is finally out. ( see older entry) I'm very happy with the results and it was a great job to work on.
I had the pleasure to have a nice dinner at Meta Hiltebrands home were she invited me and some of my friends. We had a great dinner and a lovely evening. Looking forward to more culinairy drawings to be made soon. Here's were you can get the book if you are interested. It's published by Waldegraf in Zwitserland. Were you can also buy it.

I'm back from the Garagesale exhibition in Zurich. I had a wonderfull time and enjoyed every aspect of it. Thanks to Cassaramona and Donovan Gregory for being such good curators.The people were kind and friendly and very eager to learn about our work. Here are two pics of the exhibitionspace made by Erik Kriek. Maybe next time in Tokio? Who knows. Had great fun with my traveling buddies Leendert Masselink, Ingrid Bockting and Femke Hiemstra.

Before I worked on the cookbook for a few weeks I worked on a pitch for a musical production of the Little Mermaid by Disney and "van de Ende stage entertainment". I had to make a more mature appealing mermaid an keep a lot of space open for Type and information. Unfortunatly they will use photography. It was a nice experience though to make this kind of a commercial illustration. Maybe next time more luck.

One of the great jobs I did in the last couple of weeks was providing a cookbook with illustration's. The book is called Gaumenpogo and the chef's name is Meta Hiltebrand. She's from Switzerland and has her own televisionshow and restaurant. It was a great job because the book has only illustration's and I had the privilege to make them all. It was great fun to do and I'm very pleased with the results. The book is not printed yet but here are some pages from the book as a teaser. More examples and info soon. I can't wait till it's printed.
In a few day's i will be in Zurich for the garagesale expo. There will be a lot of other illustrator's and although I will not have a lot of work to show due to the schedule I had for the last few months, it's going to be fun anyway. Drop by if you are on your way to deposit on your Swiss bankaccount and spend some at the exhibition.
It has been a while since I posted new entries (this is probably the most used opening sentence in blogland) But I had a lot of work to do and I will post the results within the next couple of day's. First up in the " manager's seven sins series Avaritia. Greed ( see previous post).

This month there's an article about "Opera" in the dutch design society magazine. Opera is the interior design studio that did the 'Emma Children's Hospital interior. The illustrations i made for the walls of one of the compartments are nicely visable on the cover of the magazine. ( see older post)
For the " Elle Style Bible" i made an illustration of a closet that was going to be used in a "real life" setting in a Dutch warehouse. Here is the result and the real life situation.
I had to make the illustration before the closet was actually placed in the "Bijenkorf" ( warehouse) filled with fashion items that would be in the style bible. Was a fun job to do

I participated in a "pitch" to do a yoghurt package illustration. It had to have a summer country side feel. The measurements we're quite small and the colours had to be pink.Unfortunately i didn't get the job. Still would very much like tot do a packaging one day.
