Bladerunner - Redesign

Here's my take on redesigning the world of Bladerunner. Done as part of the Facebook group 'Brainstorm', where weekly challenges are posted.

Really enjoyed working in this somewhat more realistic style, hopefully more to follow soon.


Themepark Visuals

Adventure Cove -  Sunken City
Terra Inventa Avenue

Adventure Cove - Treasure Trail
Adventure Cove - Dark Water Ride
These past few years I did quite a lot of theme park work, but due to NDA's the images I can not show in my portfolio. 

Therefore, I decided to start developing my own theme park as a portfolio project, which has been a lot of fun sofar! Above the first 4 visuals I did, fleshing out the  'Adventure Cove' and 'Terra Inventa' areas. 

I've been referring to this project jokingly as 'Edventure World' to friends,  a name I'll keep until I come up with something better (which shouldn't be too hard, ha!).


Swamp Maffia - Pensketches

Hi all!
I've been working on a ton of new stuff, in quite a wide range of styles. One of my favourite projects to work on is still my Swamp Maffia project, which we're trying to develop as an animated short. 

Above 3 rather rough concepts to flesh out our frog town 'Undertow City', sketched directly in pen on paper and grey scaled in photoshop. 

I thought I'd put up some snapshots of the pensketches aswell to give some insight in my work process. Next step in the process after grey scaling would be to create a tight line drawing, and flesh out everything in more detail. 

More stuff coming up!

More Swamp Maffia

Hi all!
Here are 2 more paintings done for my project, trying to further develop the look and feel of my toad-filled world. First painting zooms in on one of the many food stands that can be found throughout the city (which I for now dubbed 'Undertow City'), while the 2nd painting shows their main means of transportation across water.

Also still doing my daily spit paints, will post another batch here soon!

Back to work,

Style Test

Here's a styletest I did a while back, which now serves as my new blogbanner as well. :)


Italian Book Covers

Hi guys,
Last year I did a series of children's book covers for Italian publisher Atlantyca Dreamfarm, which finally hit Italian bookstores last month. I did a couple more, but above 2 are my favourites. It's a line of scary books for children', so don't read them right before going to bed. :)

Swamp Maffia

Finally, some new work on this blog! Above some visuals for a story idea I've been developing which I dubbed 'Swamp Maffia', revolving around a dark and gritty noir world inhabited by maffia toads. Mostly for fun and portfolio purposes at the moment, although I'd love to develop things further and make it an animation short. :)

Back to work,

'Sketching from the Imagination ' Article

That's me!

Some of pages from the article about my work

Hi all!

I thought I'd do a quick post to let you guys know my work has recently been published in an artbook called 'Sketching from the Imagination'!

The book features the sketchbooks of just so many great artists, and it's an honor to be published besides them in this wonderful 320 - page book.

It's available at various webshops, here's a link to Amazon:

Currently working hard on new personal work, you can already catch a glimpse in my
instagram sketchbook. Stay tuned!

My christmas card for this year; happy holidays everyone!


CTN 2013

Hi all!
A bit later then planned, but I thought I'd do a quick post on how much I enjoyed CTN again this year!  It was our 2nd year coming out to LA to this wonderful animation convention, and once again we couldn't have had a better time!

We were able to meet up with alot of friends we made last year, and also made many new ones.  Thank you all who stopped by our booth, and picked up some of our free cards and drawings!

As a picture can speak a thousand words, above a collage of the event. Check out more CTN photos on my facebook, thanks!

I finally found some time to put together my 2013 demoreel, which I'll be bringing to the animation convention CTN in Los Angeles again this november. Like last year, I'll be sharing the booth with my buddy Wouter Tulp, so make sure to stop by if you're in the neighbourhood!

More info on CTN coming soon!

I thought I'd finally post this one. I started it many months ago, but never got around finishing it until today. I wanted to create a single image that would capture my entire 'Giant' project in one shot, and show how much potential the story would have for the big screen. Defenitely hope to one day flesh out this project in either a book or animation;  for now enjoy the image and keep your fingers crossed it'll one day become that big project :)

Rough sketches - Main Characters

Storybeat Color

Style Exploration

Hi guys!
These last 2 months I haven't exactly been updating my blog alot, above the reason why! The images above were done as part of the online CGMA masterclass 'Environment sketching for production', as instructed by the wonderful Armand Serrano. This class basically took me and my fellow classmates through a fictive animation production, including coming up with your own script, creating mood & styleboards,  rough sketching, storybeats, switching styles (so much fun!), and much much more.

My story synopsis:

When the Mars Rover finally returns to earth, he brings with him a botanic plague that may cause the end of the world.

During a live television broadcast on CNN, NASA proudly shows samples of Marsian rock. The broadcast goes haywire when one of the presenters accidentally knocks over a glass of water, which is quickly absorbed by the  alien rock, causing it to explosively grow botanic tentacles. 

In a matter of minutes the whole TV studio is overgrown with weird looking veins & plants, which is only the start of a turn of events that may lead to the end the world as we know it.

Yep, and that's why I never became a writer :)
Anyway, I had alot of fun, learned alot, and met some great people. I want to thank Armand for his amazing class, I could not have wished for a better instructor.

More stuff coming up!
