Real quick sketch for some more practise in PS, not so happy about the anatomy though.

For many months I’ve barely touched anything artie-material wise. So I believe this might be my first sketch of 2014! :)

One of my  shitty-gritty digital sketches whilst learning myself digital drawing and stuff…
Conceptish sketch of Rihlah and two of her many companions, Pain and Grudge. Part of my personal project Pathos:Rihlah.

As long as the fetuses are alright..
Is a response from a fellow Tumblr person, on a message or topic from (I believe) http://truth-has-a-liberal-bias.tumblr.com/ quite some time ago. Prior when the state Texas toughened their abortion restrictions… Which of course, sparks quite a debate and protests.
Anyway, the words stayed with me for quite some time, till the final day it combined with a sketch I had in a drawer, which hasn’t seen the light of day for about 2 years…
So! Here is some practice and experimenting in the style/medium department. So credit to the person who wrote that down! And thank you for the inspiration!

Finally after several weeks of lying around getting through several types of flu (I should have a member card or scratch card for this), applying for jobs, working on my website, which I’ve updated! And so on.. I finally scanned some sketches!

After graduating I’ve slowly started sketching and researching for a new personal project which I now dubbed Rihlah, which is Classic Arabic for journey, mostly used in Islam as a journey or quest, with connotations of a voyage undertaken for the sake of divine knowledge of Islam. (source: wikipedia.com).

For a little while now I’ve been researching the cultures of North Africa and am absolutely stunned with several cultures of e.g. Marocco, Algeria, and so on. And fell in love with many of the traditional outfits. So probably lots of research sketches of those coming.

So far the story follows Rihlah and the creature Pain, as Rihlah tries to find a way to get rid of Pain.

On Saturday the 6th of July I graduated for my Bachelor Illustration Design. The first three photographs are courtesy of Leo de Wijs, the first two show my part of the exam exhibition, with my graduation project, the major part of the wall “Pathos, Pain & all her Friends”. And on the other side of the wall, designs, illustrations, books, my thesis, etc. made by me. 

The fourth picture is taken by Tammo Schuringa, right after my final exam.  :)

I finnaaallllllyyy ordered my very first, batch of business cards! During the design part for which I took 2 days, I eventually got so carried away with the idea of how much the card is supposed to tell about me as an illustrator, that at one point I threw all the sketches and such aside and just started drawing away and focusing on ‘having fun’.

Though, because it was quite a ‘stressy’ time and ‘yay for Fibrofog’, I made some tiny errors, that I know could have been improved. But as for now, I’m reasonably happy with the final result. :)

So here I present my very first business card and the original piece. Because in most cases the original alwaaayyss looks better………

The end is near!! Well at least for my graduation project it is, thus therefore I present my graduation exhibition, which will take place from July 3rd till July 7th at ArtEZ, school of arts in Zwolle, the Netherlands.
So if you’re in the area be sure to check out the exhibition, not only because of my ‘fabulous’ works of art, but also the many other graduating students who’ll display their work. Ranging from architecture to theater and Fine art and many more…

Rather quick sketches turned into more finished illustrations-thingies.

Whilst trying to find a fitting theme/design/idea for my business card, I went through several routes, including just draw things I like, which are for example, whales and sloths..

(yes, those weird looking things that somehow became some other strange looking creatures in the process, but were supposed to be sloths).
