This is the cover of my latest children's book. The title means 'Laps and Wieb'. Laps and Wieb are the names of the Rabits.

ch ch ch changes

On the illustrator's mailing list a discussion is going on about changes. And I just did one this morning, so I'll generate some traffic here. This client always asks for changes, it is like a matter of principal to them. This time the hairdo was "tuttig". I agree, but I have to confess it was a little on purpose.

Brussel bureaucracy & chemical industry Mix

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
for a newspaper article about bureaucracy in the european union. While working on it I tried to mime some features of silkscreen printing. I used two layers of color, the overlap being the darkest color. (the dark & white smoke I put in later)

working without getting paid (in a normal way)

Illustration for an article about new ways of getting paid for freelance work. No normal invoices (factuur) anymore, the constituent decides what he thinks your work is worthed.
This may sound strange, but it gives the freelancer more freedom to come up with new ideas. And in the end the payment needn't to be less. In fact it is often better.

I have been illustrating softdrugs-related publications for some years now. I haven't, however, touched a single spliff all those years; too much paranoïa! This one is # 5 in a series about famous Dutch people being stoned, following a series of stoned pin-ups and one about stoned superheroes, all of them published in the dutch marijuana-promoting glossy High Life.

de harmheid

This drawing, based on the 2 tone characters used by the Specials and the Beat, was made for Harm, singer of the dutch ska/rock outfit De Hardheid. He gave me the old and rare nederpunk compilation-album 'Als je haar maar goed zit', featuring classic bands such as A4, Frites Modern, Amsterdamned and the Nitwitz, and I made him this one.

Happy landing, professor Weizenbaum!

As Miss Duvekot already pointed out, this weekend she and me are back to back ( 96, if you pardon me this tasteless pun) in NRC-Handelsblad, 'the mind's grindstone' as the paper calls itself. ( The 'Ghost's Grindstone' sounds better but I'm not sure they're talking phantoms here.)

I was asked to illustrate an interview with professor Weizenbaum, who left Germany in the 30's with his furrier-parents, stood at the cradle of computers at MIT (U.S.A.), denounces now both MIT for working with the Pentagon and his own invention of digital psycho-therapy, hates Bush, returned to Berlin to live opposite the Berlin Dom, doesn't believe his grandchildren will die a natural death, says: 'Who only has a hammer sees the whole world as a nail' and hopes to celebrate his 85th birthday soon, in spite of his doctor's alarming opinion...
When the journalist left he said: 'Wish me a happy landing' and added with a big smile that everything he'd told him had been a lie.

too funny

Click image to enlarge.
This is too funny. Peter Pontiac and I are not really side by side, we are back to back, pages 47 and 48. You can check for yourselves, the digital edition of the NRC is temporarily open to everyone. Here's a bigger version of my drawing.
