An Idea a day - Watermelons, sausages and James Joyce

This time I made an illustration for this article, about the greatness of the novel Ulysses by James Joyce and how everyone should try to read it this summer by the pool.

An Idea a Day - Little Telescope

An other illustration for Ideas Illustrated

This time about a small telescope, no bigger nor more powerful than a high-end digital camera, has helped researchers discover two new planets. Read the article here.


Asthma Trust Commercial

A while back I was asked to create 30 images for the Dutch Asthma Trust, these images were used as props in a national tv commercial.
The commercial talks about the history of the Asthma Trust and their goals for the future like banning smoking on school grounds.
Its quite exciting to see your drawings as big as the people in the tv spot although normally I would have chosen different colours but I had to stick to the colour pallet of the Asthma Trust.

Have a look!

Here are some stills

More new ideas

Since my last blog post I did some more drawings for Ideas Illustrated! Perfume designer Geza Schoen and fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld have created a scent that smells like “freshly-printed books”.  I chose book titles that could very well be names for parfumes. (some of them already are)
Read more about it here.

Ideas illustrated

The last 2 weeks I have been an intern at the design agency YCN's studio, a very inspiring and exciting place to work!
I have mostly been doing illustrations for their Ideas Illustrated blog where an interesting idea is posted daily. I get one day to work on each piece of work which is very challenging but a good exercise for me to work quickly and develop concepts in a short time period.

Here are a few of my favorites (you can see them all on the ideas illustrated blog)
Make sure you check out YCNs latest edition of Ideas Illustrated magazine, its packed with interesting ideas and beautiful illustrations.

Since successfully finishing my first year at Kingston University I was lucky enough to get an summer internship at the London based creative studio & agency YCN.
I will be working at their studio for the next month on various projects, one of which is making illustrations for their Ideas Illustrated blog  where each day an interesting idea is posted.

Here a welcome post from YCN on their talent blog!
