At first I found it hard getting the creative juices flowing during the first few weeks of quarantine. But now that I’m able to enjoy some days of Easter holidays, I have finally found the time to start a project that’s been on my ‘to draw list’ for ages… decorating skateboards. It was the death…
module illustratie @ Xaco
It’s been my dream for years and last year it became reality. It was every bit as fun as I imagined it to be and the results surpassed my expectations, as you can see for yourself. One of my students went on to study Illustration @ St. Lucas, but I’m sure she’s not the only…
The last three years I’ve had the honour of illustrating a Christmas greeting card for my friend Annelies Adriaenssens of Vrij Bewust I’m quite happy with the results and as luck would have it, she is too. Vrij bewust wants to break taboos connected to love and I designed some Christmas cards to spread the…
Christmas holidays means I finally get some time for reading and drawing and in this case one inspired the other!

Postcards for sale
My new postcards are for sale @TLNT (Talent in de buurt, Statiestraat, just around our corner) and right here of course. I’m working on a new Christmas card. Let me know if you’re interested and you’ll be the first to know when it’s printed.
I bought myself an iPad last summer. I started experimenting with colouring some sketches I did on two lovely American writers: John Steinbeck and Edgar Allan Poe. Here’s the result:
More sailor’s delight
I don’t know where the sailors keep coming from, but here they are… I’m a big fan of Stephan Vanfleteren. When I see his pictures, I always end up drawing them. (I’m not sure if that’s allowed, but you could call it fan art, right?) There’s something imperfect, yet captivating about the faces he catches…
I’ve been working on this sailor for too long and I have decided that he’s finished even though I’m not satisfied with the result. The idea was that the sailor would be entirely covered with inspirational tattoos but the project turned out to be too time-consuming, so I threw in the towel halfway. Maybe…
