And then there was motion

Being far too busy which is making me dream about work every night finally paid off (besides the money): last night I actually did have a useful idea for one of the pieces I'm working on!! I was asked to make another illustration for Heijman's blog, and now here it comes: Not only is there the advantage of RGB colors, but also of.. motion. Ha!!
Hence the poorly animated gif, but this is the first stage of the test phase. You wait!

rusty nail

This is how photography beats illustration.. Never ever in a million years could I make a drawing as striking and alienating as this one, published in Dutch newspaper Trouw today. The headline reads Stubborn as a rusty nail. The resident disagreed with the demolition of his house for the construction of a highway..

meccano love

This weekend Dutch newspaper Trouw will print an article about the development in technology, and in particular the ethical side of this, which is symbolized by the story of Icarus. Therefore I have drawn a wing that is built from Meccano parts. I'm crazy about using elements that literally help me build an image. So whenever I get the chance to do so I grab it. I illustrated the parts very precisely so that all holes actually fit together. I'm sure I'm going to use them more often, they are so pretty!
