Kees van Kooten

When I create caricatures for magazines, often I hand in my work, get paid and that's that. Sometimes, the depicted personality contacts me to tell me what they think about my drawing. In this case, Kees van Kooten published his thoughts on my drawing in 'Hollands Diep' magazine.
For all of you who do not speak dutch; let's say he has a very kind way of saying he likes the drawing.
Thank you very much, Kees!

Graphite powder

Recently I bumped into the great work of Niklas Andersen LINK
He allowed me to share some of his advice on the use of graphite powder on my tutorial blog LINK. This drawing is the result of some playtime with pencil and graphite powder.

Art for water

My entry for the 'Art for Water' project.



Art for Water is a non-profit campaign to aid two charities, Charity: Water and Waves for Water, in bringing clean and safe drinking water to the almost 1 billion, who struggle without it.

We are a group of artists who have donated our art to be part of an online store where 100% of proceeds will go towards the campaign. The website will be a collection of talented artists all over the world. We hope that you will take time to visit it when it is launched.


The water projects we are trying to fund include 3 wells and 100 filters, which can help up to 6000 people. To do this we need to raise $20,000.


Almost a billion people on the planet do not have clean and safe drinking water. We’ve decided that this is unacceptable. $20 is all that is needed to save one life. Think about how easily you spend $20. It’s not a lot to us, but it can do so much somewhere else in the world.

Please donate and support if you believe in this cause.

To donate immediately, please visit:

Ugly Lily

This is the very first concept sketch for an Ipad app of a song by the very talented singer Elisabeth Simonian. I will be collaborating with the great Coen Hamelink . The project is still very fresh, and I can't wait to see how this will develop...

In this sketch I just wanted to capure a mood and style to refer to in later stages of the process.
