New book

I'm working on a new book for De Eenhoorn. Written by Brigitte Minne and hopefully published early 2012...

Nobrow 6 - The Double

I finally made it into Nobrow, the nicest looking illustration (and now also comic) magazine in the world. Nobrow 6 is all about the Doppleganger, packed with breathtaking spot colour madness and sold right here.

Feest in't Park

From 2002 until 2007 I did the posters for Feest in't Park, a world music festival in the heart of Bruges. Recently I was asked to design a 8 by 3 meter banner with the character I used in the last 4. I'm not going to show the original posters, because... well, they were made a long time ago... But I still like the shape and movement of the lady, so it doesn't look that bad at all ;-)

Boekenbeurs: the process

Because was very pleased with the outcome of the 2011 Boekenbeurs poster, they asked me to come up with a 'making of' to put on the BB Facebook profile. I thought I'd post it on my blog as well, so here it is: from rough idea to finished artwork.

The idea: a lot of books representing the stands and interior elements like doors and stairs and people doing all sorts of things with those book.

Looking for characters and their position. I was inspired by the map of the book fair to come up with the space that was needed for the title and other information.

Mixing the characters with the books.

Looking for the final composition. I added some characters and had to lose a few too. The client wanted to see all the aspects of the book fair in the illustration: book signing, lectures, workshops,...

Still moving some characters around...

The final line drawing.

Almost done.

The final artwork. I had to change a few things digitally like erasing 'boekenbeer' on one of the covers and adding a mic to the lady at the bottom.
