Concept childrensbook

A few months ago I was asked by a woman who wanted to make a children’s book in Manga-style, to come up with illustrations for her book. My idea was to illustrate the main characters and use real life pictures as background. For this concept I used the program Adobe Photoshop.

Visual concept De Plint

As a graphic designer I’m sometimes asked for an assignment.  For a new project at Hogeschool Inholland in Rotterdam I was asked to make a visual of a concept for an interior design. I made all visuals, using the program Adobe Illustrator.


I was going threw some pictures I had on my laptop. I came across a picture of two women with beautiful natural hair. Somehow I was drawn to it, so I started to create an illustration with that picture as inspiration.
The making off this illustration is also on Youtube-channel:

Woman with headscarf


One of the many illustrations I enjoyed making. With everything I make, I always try to stay close to my roots. There for the earring the shape of Africa’s continent and the headscarf. The thing I enjoyed most was working and the details in the headscarf and earring.

African Fashion Illustrations part 2

This concept is also part of the African fashion Illustrations. It looks a bit different, due to the detailed patterns. I wanted to add something that showed something of my style. Just like some of my other illustrations and paintings, this illustration has a pattern on the face and neck and the woman has no pupils and iris.


This is another new African painting I am working on. I don’t name my paintings, because I don’t know what to name them. lol. I don’t draw the pupil and the iris in the eye, because I want to try create an expression out of her body, instead of the eyes. That’s the reason why the lady in this painting and the two previous ones don’t have an iris and a pupil.


New artwork finished

And then it was finally finished. When I started this painting, I wanted to keep the colour of the background gold, just as my previous painting. But for some reason I didn’t quite like it on this painting…soo I painted the background yellow.



Working on a new african portrait

afro portret 3 inprogress

Hey everyone. This is a new portrait I’m working on. It looks very much like the previous portrait I made. This is because I want to continue working in the same style. That is something that I really have to get used to, because I like working in different styles. For me this is definitely a challenge, but I like challenges and art… soo we’ll see what the result will be 🙂
