Gids 22


Me and Eliane share the same client. I just did this editorial piece for the VPRO Gids #22, illustrating an article on a new Discovery Channel show entitled 'Dirty Jobs' about people with ...dirty jobs.

Gids 21



I didn't receive a VPRO-Gids myself yet, but somebody sent me a picture, so it's out there all right. I'll put a larger image in my portfolio later today.

Dangerous cartoonist inactivated


A statement against an almost totalitarian police action in the Netherlands, involving a police raid, house-search, seizure and imprisonment of a Dutch cartoonist.

Although a cartoonist may create questionable work, a democratic state should not arrest and imprison someone who has only expressed his vision, no matter how provocative. Intimidating people in such a way is the kind of repressive, censoring gesture that belongs to a dictatorship.

Ritalin


For my regular Swiss gig, Weltwoche Magazine, I did this witty illo accompanying a rather dry, technical article on Ritalin. The drug prescribed to pacify over-active children. My own kid, Clovis, is two months old today and sleeping peacefully as I write this entry. Hopefully I won't be needing any Ritalin to pacify him in the near future...

Networkless


My first isometric pixel illustration for a magazine.

It's very nice to be back in the world of pixels. The purity of pixels has always had a special magical attraction to me, from the days I was playing Pong on a television in my early childhood.

Later I became a pixel artist for commercial 2D computer games in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Hierarchy


Before I was a 3D guy I was a pixel artist for commercial 2D games, from the late 80s to the late 90s. Now I'd like to return to my roots (without leaving 3D of course).

Here's an illustration I made to get into pixeling again. I tried to keep it as minimalistic as possible, in search of the ultimate essence in conveying a visual message.

Girls galore




Hey. It's been awhiles since my last post. I have a baby son (seven weeks now) and it's taking up a lot of my time. I'm only now slowly getting back to work. Here's two illo's I did for a clockface (Lou Lou posted one here some time ago also). The first one they didn't like, so I will use that one for something else. The second one they did like, so that's the one that'll see print.

music for divorced men



Dutch fans of Americana music. I wouldn't want to embarrass any Clogwork guys, so I'll keep my opinions on my own blog this time. And before you ask, it is Johnny Cash's dog.
