I hope you are enjoying a nice holiday. These people aren’t. Two quick illustrations for the Effie Awards, reminding us to vent our frustrations once in a while and get on with the work.
Another nice collaboration with artbox | centre for creation.
A few character portraits I made for my friends and myself.
A few portraits I was commissioned for by Histor, the dutch paint brand. They have a special team of style advisers, people who can help with picking colours for your home. And with the vast array of colours to choose from, with such incredible names as ‘eyelash’, ‘promise’ and ‘unexpected’, you might just need their help!
A few images from a recent pitch for a pretty big client. Some of the most commercial and simplified work I have ever done probably, but a wonderful learning experience for sure. I found my satisfaction not so much in the subject matter, but playing around with limited palettes and shapes. Stripping down the process has been one of the most beneficial things I have done the past year or so. I still enjoy getting fussy and detailed, but I feel the focus has shifted from stacking details upon details to a more cohesive approach. A little more structured.
A fantastical creature sketch from a while ago. This was done for an illustration pitch, and ended up being used as concept art for a promotional image. In hindsight, I can’t deny the obvious resemblance to a certain kind of fluffy alien, but that was unintentional. I guess the Galaxy Far, Far Away has left a profound impression on my imagination…
