back on a bag

Next to showing the stuff that makes me tick, I suppose this is what an illustrator's blog should be all about; the behind-the-scenes, the previews and what nots. So hereby; the making of my first totebag-design for envelop.eu (An online store where illustrators can create and sell cotton items.)
The design is actually part of a draft I made for a magazine-illustration, that got a bit out of hand. It was supposed to be just a quick outline for approval. But I was so sure of my idea and the way it would turn out that I got on&on with it. And then it was rejected.
But. Here it is again, back on a bag! And I'm thinking that these failures could be the start of something new.

preparing for exhibition

Next week I will participate in an exhibition, so today was all about printing and cutting and thinking frames and prices. Found myself carrying around this large art-folder once again, and it felt like I should be doing this more often.

must haves (part one)

After skates, today it's crates. That's right; they have my name on them. Ever since I saw how Mauricio Arruda turned them into this amazing cabinet I have my mind set on them.
Besides that I appreciate the mix of colors and the geometric repetition.

put your hands up for amsterdam (our lovely city)

There is a first time for everything. So this is my first babystep into Bloggerhood. Also, today was the first time in about four years that I've used my rollerblades. Took this picture riding them home in my bike after 2(NOTE!) rounds of Vondelpark.
