Illustration 5: Succes

Pencil and Photoshop.

This is the last illustration for the book A.L.O.I.S. but i'm not finished yet. I also have to make a cover.
The little book is about people who struggle with addiction. I uses in this illustration a lot of happy colors and it's a natural design. Succes is something you can't touch but you feel it. I symbolized the fact that people grow if they are succesfull.

Self knowledge

Pencil and Photoshop.  50 x 70 cm.
This illustration is one of the 6 illustration i'm making for a book that's about people who struggle with all kind of addictions. When i thought about self-knowledge i had to think about knowing yourself really good in your life, which decisions you should make, which not, that's why the figure is holding a book with brains on it. You can imagine it's a map or something where he looks at with his laserglasses.  I chose to use owls, because they are sybolism for wisdom. If he walks the ground lights up with every step, just like the movie clip from Michael Jackson (which i think is very cool). The illustration is darker than the other ones but i think it's better for the concept.

Fashion girls & 50 + Event

Pencil on paper.
I made these sketches for wooden bracelets but i could also use it for clothes, like a t-shirt design. I have so many ideas to work out, but i work on several projects now.

Last year Roland Pupupin, photographer, and i made a book: "Kleine Dingen Met Liefde Doen".
It means doing small things with lots of love. The book shows how i made a 328 feet wallpainting in a nursing home in Amersfoort. Roland made lots of portraits of the old people and of the making of.
