Savoy Room (jazz band from The Netherlands) returns to the studio to make new music!
They’ll be working on new songs, gigs and eventually a brand new album.

I’ll be supporting them again with new artwork.
More about that when there’s something to share!

Patterns around the house #July’16

The 15th of July I’ve started a weekly Instagram project to get more pattern minded. Last year and this year I found myself buying more clothing with patterns all over it. It’s a nice contrast seeing them laying between my dark colored stuff in the closet and I find it a nice change to wear them as well!

To get even more pattern minded (for creative purpose) I thought I’d collect them as well, captured in a pic as reference material. And I thought, like many people do, Instagram is a good medium for this…It brightens my account too!

So…every week a pattern, shared on Instagram (and Facebook) and I’ll post them once a month on this blog, categorized ‘PATTERNS AROUND THE HOUSE’, found in the right menu.

This one’s for July!

Project Sketchbook 2016

One of my new years resolutions was start working in a real sketchbook.
I decided I want to draw more, to create material for what so ever (illustrations, patterns (collection), collage, maybe for clients or self-initiated projects). I think it’s more fun than only focussing on making things for the given assignments (by clients or courses).
But when I want to work in a freely way I still need restrictions or guidelines to stay on track, I think that’s because I want to know it’s for some reason, rather than just doing stuff….hm… quite contradictory, isn’t it?

This is Project Sketchbook 2016:

I started with an image in my head, drew it, and every next page should be related in some sort of way, wether it’s a detail made into a pattern, a texture, emotion, things from a dream that’s related in a way, strangeness, perspective, whatever. I’m allowed to add new things. When I cannot think of anything else, this relation-illustration is done and I can use it like it is or use selected things for patterns/ a collection, collage or whatever…

Here are the first six pages. I will share new pages whenever they’re ready to share, I made a category for it, which you can find in the left menu.
