De tour bus van Harry Merry

Together with Lastplak we painted the tour bus of Outsider musician Harry Merry.
The last three years Lastplak invited me to join them painting on Baroeg Open air.
Since i consider myself a fan of Harry Merry, this year was rather special for me because i had the oppertunity to paint the tourbus of the culthero.

My favorite song of Harry Merry is Clarissa.

Men Without Hats



I have started a project about music.
I will make a variety of illustrations about bands, producers and artist who i like to listen to.

The second artist is: Men Without Hats
This is band is really a one of a kind in my opinion.
The positive 80's synthesizer music in combination with the often confusing lyrics gives the feeling of being part of a story that only lives in the heads of the bandmembers.
One of the myserious figures in their repertoire is Tony.
He is selling parachutes door to door becouse its always a war and Tony had been kidnapped before he got to old.
This illustration is taken from their hit song 'The Safety Dance'
Check out the video i made this illustration off!

May you rest in peace David.

Game Concept



Game concept
Jules Verne & The Writers Block.

The video game is a individual project formed by a small company that makes applications for mobiel consoles. The company exist of a small team of friends who started as amateurs but are slowly turning into pros.
The games is based on a RPG/roleplaying game on the tablet and phone which is settled in a isometric world that excises out of a cartoon like environment and playful atmosphere. The story goes that Jules Verne himself is the main character. He has gone totally mad and has been trapped into the fantasy that the real world became a mixture or mass of all of his most famous books. Now its time for him to sort things out. There for he has to go trough a whole bunch of levels that combine all the story lines and content around the subjects putten forward. In this levels he has to solve tasks, puzzles and find hidden objects to complete a book. This can contain the main character, space and time, themes and all including. For completing a book he, sometimes has to go to previous levels and back. Every book has the same amount of levels as chapters.
For completing the game he has to complete the following books:

1 - Around the world in eighty days
2 - The adventures of captain Hatteras
3 - Journey to the center of the Earth
4 - From the earth to the Moon
5 - The mysterious Island
6 - Twenty thousand leagues under the sea

Because the game starts all messed up and its like a setting everything straight type of game, this game is very interesting to play. Because once u have started playing, the results are shown right away. The game is easy to play with a handle and action buttons on screen. This give the player the feeling it can move around freely trough the levels. Also jumping, swimming, flying, digging, riding vehicles and all kinds of movements are part of the game. The character change appearance in between levels. Getting further in the game makes the character stronger and upgrades of weapons and the character itself are needed.

Music variety presents: Tim & Eric

I have started a project about music.
I will make a variety of illustrations about bands, producers and artist who i like to listen to.

The second duo is: Tim & Eric
Tim & Eric were the creators of the American sketch comedy series Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!
which aired on Adult Swim.
In this illustration, Tim and Eric play the musical group Casey and his brother.
A duo who perform goofy songs that sound realy bad.
That is becouse Casey suffers from facial eczema and extreme stage fright. His brother just dances in a intresting way.
Anyhow they try their very best, its a true comedy.
Tim and Eric made alot more then just this, for example: Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie, A must see!
Check out the video i made this illustration off!

The first Band is: Laibach
Laibach is a music project of the New Slovenian Art group.

Family visit

Today i paid my family a visit for a little job they had for me.
I was asked to paint on a piece of metal they will put on the door of their barn.
All they wanted was the number 45 on it, because that is the number of the house.
I had to use my imagination to fill in the rest of the piece of metal.
