Metalshop


Last November I was part of an exhibition at the Singer Sweatshop in Rotterdam named "Metalshop". Art, music and performances all had something to do with the musicgenre. My contribution was a detailed triptich that depicts a frantic madness at a metalconcert.

Otis

Friends of mine asked me to make the birth announcement for their son. I was honored with the request, and had total creative freedom. So instead of the usual cute stuff I tried a different approach...



 Having a first child can be a scary thing!

The parents to be liked the idea, so I went on drawing and painting:



The small portraits didn't make it too the final design, except for the cat, and a decision was make about the name: OTIS
This lucky kid has some cool parents!





Logodesign

Oranienstra├če


My studio is in a nice and quiet backyard in Kreuzberg. But as soon as we leave the gate we are right in the actionpacked middle of this vibrant neighbourhood.

First I made a few thumbnails to get the angle right. I needed to figure out the best way to show the many different characters that roam the street. 

 
 Slowly getting there. In the process the charcters are taking shape as well.

Here the people in the background are still too small. I want to show them bigger, even though that means bending the rules of perspective a bit...

Now that everybody is more or less in place I startet filling in the charcters, thinking of all the details like fashion, style, expression etc.

 
The final drawing in pencil

 
 Inked with pen and brush...

...and the final illustration in Watercolor!
