New sketchbook

Birdnests. Red pencil and bows on paper. 

Flamingo's. Red pencil and graphite on paper.

Chinese. Red pencil and chinese sweets packages on paper. 
Moleskine Sketchbook. The paper is so fine, top quality heavy acid-free paper, 13 x 21 cm - 5 x 8 1/4".
I really recommend it.
My intern gave me at the end of the internship these sweet gifts.

Editing is time consuming so time needs to be reservated. The updates about these projects will come!

This month i want to focus on:
- my new painting
- another wedding card design
- logodesign
- and i want to make some new illustrations/paintings!

I am featured on Juxtapoz! I really like the book of Juxtapoz i've got from a friend last year. They publish great art.

I am featured on Illustration Age. Every day Thomas James from posts new artists. Tip of the day! This website is great because i always listen to podcasts of interviews with other illustrators there.


I'm also featured on Kinki design Platform. It is a cool hairdresser shop in the Netherlands. They cut your hair in an unique creative way and the shops also look really different than what you are used to.
