Freestyle sketches

Pencil, colorpencil and acrylics on paper.
I'm using different materials in my sketchbook again. You can surprise yourself easier if you do whatever you want without thinking.

This was for a wallpainting in Amsterdam.

Gemma Ward on the left. She has such a special beautiful face. Joris on the right at a sketchmeeting in the park in Utrecht. I'm thinking about modelsketching again because it's always the best thing to do!
Girl-stuff. Ballpoint on paper. I really want to paint on big canvasses soon, but i'm busy with 6 illustrations and a chair right now.

Pencil on paper. 21 x 29,7 cm.
For the little book: A.L.O.I.S.

This sketch is about selfknowledge and how you can avoid problems (traps) in your life. It's always challenging to draw something that's physical, something you can't grab.
I'm changing the background right now, because the beartraps are too litarley and i feel like i can make it more symbolic!

Pencil on paper: 50 x 70 cm.
The rough sketch traced on my lighttable onto big smooth paper.
If you also want to have a big lightbox and you can't find a nice one, you can buy a table with glass on top. I have one with a milky glassplate, perfect for transferring images. Buy TL-lights and search for a 'very handy man' that will fix your lightbox table. If you're a man: Do it yourself and feel awsome.
Pencil and Photoshop.
While i was working on this piece i definitely pushed myself to work with movement, technical stuff and background. The webcolors are really soft, it's actual much more colorful.

New visitcards

I made two different versions for my visitcards. I like the elephant more.
Don't you think?


I saw these beautiful characters in Utrecht in a window somewhere.
Too bad there was no name, number or website to find next to the objects!
Does anybody now how it was made?
I'm guessing gypsum, because it's very smooth. Or maybe clay? One day i really want to make my own 3d characters!

Pencil and Photoshop.
This is the second illustration of the serial of six. It's about addiction and how people struggle with it to let it go. I thought about ropes, he cuts himself free with the scissor.

Illustration 1: "Afleiding" (Distraction)

Pencil and Photoshop.
300 dpi. 50 cm x 70 cm.
This is one of the serie of six illustrations for a book. It's about addiction and it helps people who want to stop with drugs, game-addiction, alcohol, gambling etc. The first illustration is about distraction, but in a positive way! I used different hobbies to show what you can do to give your life a twist.
