These life dawings I made at the sessions arranged by Arne.
The male model was very expressive. He is a dance student, and his poses were very challenging.
My father also joined some of the sessions. Check out his drawings here
and the drawings of Arne here

This illustration is about someone coaching an unemployed person. He's is rowing in his paper resume boat, and the coach is giving him directions.
Unfortunately the illustration was rejected in the end. On second thought they found the illustration too negative.
Too bad, although I personally am very glad I got to finish the sketch. I learned some more about textures and digital illustration...

Studies studies studies. I really enjoy studying life models. With everey drawing I learn more about the human figure, shapes, anatomy, and translating that into a drawing...
My good friend Arne set up a drawing class, and I am really grateful that I can join in. Check out his drawings here

My first steps in animation.
I finally puchased animation software, so I can experiment and find out what this medium is about. It is really fascinating studying movement, timing, squash and stretch.
Having good fundamentals in understanding shapes, 3 dimensionality and basiscs of anatomy is essential to make a character move convincingly.

After a long time i finally had the opportunity to do a commisioned caricature again. These are Johan Cruijff, Rinus Michels, and Marco van Basten: three of Hollands best soccer coaches.
I did it in little over one day. Very little time. The whole illustration was done digitally.

The first drawing depicts the infamous Jules Deelder. The second sketch is a quick study of the actor Ron Perlman.

I have had the honor to cooperate on a TV-commercial for Albert Heijn. Hollands biggest supermarket. The commercial is about the smurfs that you can get for free when you do your shopping at AH. It was my job to design the Harry character, and to paint all of the Backgrounds. I had a lot of fun doing this job, and also I learned a lot about animation, since it was my first animation project. The storyboard was done by the great Daan Jippes and the movie was directed by Hans Buying.
As you can see this is the evolution of the Harry character. I had to navigate between likeness and smurfness...
