ABOUT

I graduated as an architect in 1997. As a child one of my favorite ways of playing was drawing. I was influenced by animations, cartoons, and among others, encyclopedias.
I start by sketching with pencil. My technique involves drafting an initial painting at a small size and then processing and painting them digitally. The final artworks are hand-painted, printed and hand-painted, often with acrylics and oils, with highlights and fades.     

I have practiced illustrations for almost 30 years. I have also done a lot of exhibition design for various museums. The illustration side has been pretty much across the board varying from children’s books to women’s magazines and everything in between and over. Interesting is to do specific illustrations for companies and businesses, you get to use different processes and various visual ways to get the message across. Most stretching and inspiring illustrations, for example, have been the Space Freaks board game for Toad King’s. My hobbies are diving and underwater rugby (as an old and slow striker). Today, I focus on painting and running my print shops like MoleHoleOffice (Underwater Rugby and workout stuff) in Etsy.   In my workshop, I have two carcasses of motorcycles side by side with my art in perfect harmony. My motorcycle t-shirt shop is here mummyduck.com.
