abstract series

MF-abstract-rug-all2-wl

For an instagram-competition by Slowdown Studio I made these rug designs.
A winning chance is like winning the lottery…
Little chance because of the “OMG-so-much-cool-designs-sent-in-already!!!!”.
So maybe I’ll be turning them into prints for selling?

Anyway, it was really fun to make these kind of images and my brushes are
screaming for more! =D

OWN

mf-miid-own-pattern

The second, and last, assignment in the Make It In Design Winterschool 2017 was creating a pattern with the theme: OPULENT, WONDROUS NATURE, with the words in mind “animals”, “eclectic”and historical”. (Click here to check out the first one.)

I’ve chosen to draw (fantasy) insects with a touch of Jugendstil details and some soft colours. This time I did a mock-up, just to see how it would be on a wall….also because I found the photo was very suitable for this pattern ;).

After inking all the illustrations with the help of my lightbox, I scanned them in, cleaned them up in Photoshop and made a composition in Illustrator.

I coloured the pattern in photoshop and voilá…
The first picture is the repeat pattern tile (quite a big one…).

Would you decorate your home with this wallpaper?

It’s here! The new record by MDV from his Voodoo Gold Records label…..
I designed the label and did a little photoshoot with it on my gorgeous orange couch…

The record is still for sale here, distributed by Clone Records, and you can also listen to some soundbites

Yet again a new Recycle Hero is born

Let’s give our new Recycle Hero, born on the 1th of July a warm applause!!!
Although….I don’t think she’ll be needing it….

She likes to sunbathe and doing nothing but parade in her bikini and her golden jewelry. I’m not sure yet what kind of things we can expect from her and I certainly don’t think we’ll be seeing much of her during fall and winter time in the Netherlands.

I made this little Hero for my niece as a ‘baptism’ present (water, gold and crosses on the bikini).
