I decided to make a tumblr where I can save all the pretty inspiring things I find online.
I've been saving everything pretty in maps all over my computer for years now, so why not online?
Link to my tumblr is:

An Illustration I'm currently working on...

Heart in hand

A new papercut I just finished. It's not totally what I was going for but I actually like the abstract feeling of this one. A better picture will come soon...battery of my camera just died

Printed on pretty paper

maandag 14 november 2011


Somehow I always find myself making illustrations without a real background.
And with background I don't mean just a background colour.
Somehow I tend to "forget" the whole package, and just go with the idea I already have.
So.. I'm gonna challenge myself to think about the background more and come up with a new full colour design.

Any tips or tricks are always welcome!

I don't actually know why, but some time ago I decided to illustrate a camel.
Just because they look so funny and all.
Here's the result (so far)
I'm not totally satisfied yet because it's just an illustration of a camel.
I feel there's just something missing.

Little Book preview

Here's something I've been working on the past few days.
It's a little folded book. Will post better pictures and maybe some explanations soon!

On Pikaland!

Woohooo, sorry I'm just really excited. Today I opened one of my favourite blogs like I do everyday and look what I found there:

Yes! That's my illustration in a post on the Pikaland blog.
Thank you so much Amy. And it's true what you write. I also tend to like people's work more when I can read about them and what they like.Should keep that in mind everytime I update my blog without adding some explanations!

Swan Lake

Still feel like there's something missing....

Here's a little preview of something I'm working on in illustrator!

Cookie time

I'm actually practicing a lot with Illustrator these days. Will update someday soon with some of the sketches!
Any tips are welcome... I hope I'll learn how to convert my sketches into illustrations in Illustrator soon. (like the more complex ones)
While I'm practicing I'm eating some of these delicious M&M Cookies I made yesterday.
They're quite tasty!

Sperm Whale

Here's another Illustrator practice.
Someday I'll actually know what I'm doing... ;)
Keep enjoying it though, so I guess that's a good thing.

Some more sketches

I really enjoy making these...nice way of practicing basics with illustrator

dinsdag 4 oktober 2011


I somehow always like making such simple graphic "sketches"...Maybe will actually do something with it in the future.

Vinyl record cover boxes

I decided to make some boxes from the empty record covers I had laying around.
Think they came out pretty cool!

maandag 3 oktober 2011


I just came to notice I've never uploaded pictures of an exhibition that took place in the Freek Berends-delibre gallery in Echten.
They allowed me to exhibit some of my vinyl works and papercuts.

Books on my wishlist

I love buying books, especially art books... Unfortunately I'm not that rich, so I can't afford to buy every pretty book I come across. So here are some books I want to buy if I'd someday start making some more money!

Impressive - Printmaking, Letterpress and Graphic Design Gestalten ISBN: 978-3-89955-368-0 It's a beautiful book featuring a lot of great artists. I love the mixture of hand work and print work in this one. Very inspiring.

Naïve - Modernism and Folklore in Contemporary Graphic Design
ISBN: 978-3-89955-247-8

Another pretty book by Gestalten. I just love the vibrant colours and the mixture of styles. Would be awesome to have such a treasure on my bookshelf.

Tangible - High Touch Visuals

I unfortunately never had the chance to see this beauty in real life. Though it sounds really awesome from what I've heard of it.

I recently bought Papercraft 2 (which I totally love) and a book about making pop ups!
Hope to add other pretty books soon.

Beautiful Paper

I haven't been updating much recently. Main reason: I didn't make anything worth posting.
Somehow I can't seem to come up with some nice designs and ideas.
Hope I'll be able to make some new work soon.
Here's the beautiful paper I bought today.
It's Daler Rowney Murano Coloured Paper.
They've got some beautiful colour combinations.
I decided to go with their Warm colours,
Chocolate, Bordeaux, strawberry, raspberry, cinnamon, nutmeg

Sketch Time

I actually have some inspiration to "create" new works...
Hope it'll all work out, at the moment I'll just stick to sketching.
