Hope this example is not too vintage for you.
In 1991 I was asked to do an illustration for a magazine meant for yuppie-children, called 'Yukkies'...(What's in a name, right?)
The story to be illustrated was about shoplifting candy. My drawing was deemed not fit for the magazine (because of the tobacconist's hairdo?) and another illustrator was asked to do the job, apparently with my work as a back-up...

CD sleeve design

This is a design for a CD sleeve I did for of a bunch of Belgian rappers last year. Take a closer look on my Flickr-page.

And this is a logo design for their recordlabel.


These are birthcards I designed for two colleagues. The first one likes rabbits, the second likes elephants ;-) Take a closer look on my flickr-page.

This book-cover ('It won't be long before I'll see heaven again" a posthumously published collection of newspaper-columns by Dutch song-lyric-smith Lennaert Nijgh, depicting his huge cat 'Meneer', his boat , his town (Haarlem), etc.) was made including a hand-made title-banner.
I was told Mr. Nijgh personally would have wanted me to do this cover, so, reading in the manuscript how dear maritime life was to him, I tried to give a' sailorly' feeling to the title, as a fitting salute to the man.
At the publisher's they opted for the typographic solution, as shown here...

The Devil's DNA

A visual exercise. Sometimes I like to create something abstract in stead of my usual figurative work.

Weird Worm

Thought I'd show you some examples from the weird and annoying things that can happen to an illustrator.

Case #1 is very awkward.
In 1990 I made a cover for a fantasy-book. This book was not only sold in bookstores but also through a 'bookclub'. This club - ECI- has a sale-catalogue and 'The Worm Ourobouros' , as the book was called, was advertized in it.
A not too close inspection already reveals the strange thing that happened.
It's true that the 'necklace' was made seperate from the 'face' but I had it glued, and what could be the explanation for the absurd fact that the 'face' had shifted sideways ?
You think I'm silly for getting somewhat paranoid at the time ?
