An experiment showing a new technique i tried: painting in Photoshop.
Another experiment incorporated in this post: extremely long titles.
I think there's a future in both.

This illustration was used in magazine- and newspaperads selling educational childrens' books about nature. The four small books were sold together with the newspaper Het Belang van Limburg.
This is the story of a colleage who became a friend, who then presented me with a fairytale he wrote, which I liked very much and therefore decided to give shape to the main character, who you see standing on the rock above sticking his tongue out. His name is wolf. He has a custom made t-shirt, two eyes of varying colours and a mild case of ADHD.
Story credits to Philip Maes.
Composed out of many themes liked by men, this logo illustration was born out of love, but shortly after given away for adoption by it's would-be parents. From now on it will spend its days on this blog, hoping that someday its promised family will reconsider their selfish decision. I wish it all the luck. Please take a closer look.
Born into my sketchbook almost a year ago, resembling a speakerbox viewed by challenged eyesight, Doubleface continues to do the thing he loves most... popping out of holes at random times, embracing the people on the left and hissing at the ones on the right. Where do you stand?
To accompany a small magazine interview, I made this selfportrait/profecy featuring my former copywriter and I. We worked as a creative team in advertising for 2,5 years before he decided to quit the business and become a shoe salesman (this is actually not a joke). Wether his decision was made after witnessing this drawing, I can't say for sure. In any case I'm a little more careful with what I draw these days.
