A long day at the office.




Made this one as a part of an art test. I'm happy to report that it went well but that's all I can say for now. We're also finally working on the HippiePippiePocalypse pages! It's immensely fun and I can't wait to show everyone the results :D I wish i could draw faster and had more then just two properly working arms!

New HippiePippiePocalypse Illustrations!



Both of these are collaborations with David Smit. It's pretty cool, we're getting a clearer and clearer idea about the style and how we're going to do this. Sadly we spent waaay more time on the first illustration then on the second. But anyway, all important characters have been introduced now. So yay ^^
Next step: some freaking pages!

Also.. Drop us a "like" We love "likes"

The Cast


I made a sort of desktop background for myself of the HippiePippiePocalypse characters. It to remind me to practice drawing their faces more often. Let's see if it works!

Shhhh!! DeeDee & Owly are sleeping.


I can draw great danes noaw! Which is good, because one of the HippiePippiePocalypse characters is a great dane. I spent yesterday morning practicing, and already this morning when I woke up, I felt I was much more familiar with dog anatomy.

So now I can finally introduce Owly, he's grey with a white spot on his eye. You'll see more of their antics soon!

Star Boy

I haven't posted anything in aaaages! But here's something I had lying around. I drew this little guy for a potential client. I might have mentioned it before, but for some reason I fucking love drawing characters with giant heads. I'm also trying out cell-shading to speed up my production work. Pretty fun!

Girl + Snake + Colors!


Decided to throw some colors on that sketch. The snake looks even more harmless now. HA! It was on purpose, I swear! I swear!

Made with Sai, the super sexy sketching software.

Collabofeestje


Hiya!

I did a collab with the kickass artist Yasmin Sheikh, go check out her stuff!
I finally settled into my new workspace and it’s good to be productive again :D My last blog post might have sounded a bit gloomy.. that’s probably because I hadn’t been able to paint or draw anything for a looong time.. and apparently when that happens, I also lose my self esteem! Who would have thought!
So yay.. or something.. heh.

Ok bye!

Kidnappers, my first comic


Hi guys!

It's been a long time since I updated, and a lot has happened since then! I met Zombina and the Skeletones and gave Zombina the portrait I did of her. It was really fun! The show was awesome and there were dancing rockabillies everywhere. I got to hang out with them afterwards and was relieved to find out they are a laid back bunch, so that was cool.

Also, I moved from the Netherlands to Budapest, Hungary! I hope this will be a start to a great cosmopolitan life, changing country every 2 years or so until I'm old and boring :P

And remember the lil comic I was making? It took me a while to post it but here it is! :S It took so long because in hindsight I made many mistakes and it's kind of a vague story and probably the punchline is really odd and incomprehensible. But yea, failing is not new to me so why start feeling embarrassed now, right? So here's my little fuck up of a first comic. In case you're going to read it and you don't get it, here's the punchline: The building was a beauty school and those heads are these things are practice doll heads


Yea.. I'll work on those storytelling skills, I promise.

Zombina & the Skeletones!!!


I made a painting of Zombina from Zombina and the skeletones. I love their music and lyrics. It would be the perfect soundtrack for when Tarantino ever decides to make movies like 'From Dusk till Dawn' again. I could go on and on about how awesome I think they are, but here's a painting instead.



Oh! BTW, I'm seeing them live on april the 1st!! No Joke!

A Face


Because it has been a while since I updated! I'm not slacking, I swear!
This lil painting I did during breaks I took from work, it's not super spectacular I guess but it was fun though! Had some reference too. It's inspired by Vika Yermolyeva, something about her face just really made me want to paint it. So pretty ^^
