Squirrel

Hello! I'm happy to be able to post at Clogwork as a 'new member' :)
This one is just for fun, a slender elegant bird may have been better considering the exotic background, but I do so like rodents... I couldn't resist .. :P

Hope you like it!

Sola Powers!

I've wanted to make this for a long time: my own sixties B-movie sci-fi poster! With beautiful women, deadly droids and, of course, flying saucers. I quite like the end result, it has even got that faded look of the posters I flipped through in the Silver Screen, a movie memorabilia shop in Amsterdam. The only thing I regret is not starting by blocking out the composition first ... a bit messy. But I was enjoying it so much, it sort of grew by itself.

Please don't post!

I might be the only one that posts in august!
It'll be shamrock month!

More Shamrock






Finally I find myself uploading again! Again some illustrations for that trucker magazine.
I like doing it. They have become a good client, with mutual trust. That really helps making a good illustration because there is hardly any doubt about wether they wil accept the illustration. If you have to show sketches first, it sometimes holds you back a little, playing it safe.

I have a new website, blog style: shamsterdam , please visit!
Next time I'll post something about the fonts I make. I'm working on a book and finishing the website: shamfonts, you're welcome for some virtual coffee!
