Under the mistletoe…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Margriet More’s seasonal Culinairy Special is still in stores, and I made some outrageous amount of illustrations for it. YAAAY! A tear-out mistletoe page on extra thick paper, 23 tips for an extra shiny christmas, an illustrated christmas story by Ronald Giphart, and some illustrated vignettes (the little page section indicators on the top of each page).
Get this wonderfully festive issue while you still can…


Amstel Nest project – B&B Amsterdam


Together with 03 CS jewelry designer Eljo Kusters, I was invited to exhibit in the Amstel Nest project for this incredible AirB&B close to the Amstel in the east of Amsterdam.

The Nest project gives independent shops and artists a great place to collaborate by exhibiting together in small boxes. This time in the suitcases that Rob and Fang, a very creative and warm couple, who run this AirB&B have hung to the wall of there residence.

Please visit AirB&B to see for yourself why this is such an incredible place: you won’t believe the extra rooms that are hidden in the closet!

Flow Book for Paper Lovers

flow book for paper lovers
Flow Magazine’s second edition of the Book for Paper Lover’s released last week, and BOY is it fat! It’s filled with lots and lots of mouth watering paper goodies. As I’m quite passionate about paper and all, ever since I was a kid (going in and out stationary stores to take a glimpse, and later even working for kiosks for quite some time) I feel absolutely privileged to be a part of this big bundle of joy. I made 12 coloring pages that’ll cheer you up. In the Cute Stuff section of my portfolio you can see them all!


Amsterdam &Co

Yesterday was the launch party of Rabobank’s initiative Amsterdam &Co at the Hallen Studio’s in the West of Amsterdam. Amsterdam &Co is a magazine and online platform that sheds a light on the people that shape the heart of Amsterdam. Vandejong Creative Agency asked me to illustrate the food recommendations of inspiring ‘Amsterdammers’. You can take a more detailed look at the illustrations in my portfolio section ‘rich and detailed editorial illustration’.

You might also be interested to read my view on my good old hometown Amsterdam. I wrote about this earlier for Best Wishes. I’m proud to be in this first issue and just think that the whole look of Amsterdam &Co magazine and logo by Vandejong are *fab*.
