poster for new year's event

This poster I made for a new year's event in the cultural center in Jette (Brussels).
In the end I believe it feels a bit to summery, but yeah..don't we all miss a bit of summer in winter...?

We also made a banner for the event itself:


Logo design 'State of the Region'

Logo design 'State of The Region'

'State of the Region' is a collaboration between 4 Flemish social-cultural organisations:
De Federatie Sociaal-cultureel werk & Amateurkunsten, De Wakkere Burger, Kwadraet en Vormingplus. In this context 8 events will be organised, each one in another region in Flanders.
(Learn more about State of the Region)

Co-working on this project was really nice, especially getting complete creative freedom. 
I created one logo and applied it in 8 different colors. That way each event has it's own.
The logo's were used for promotion, invitations, newsletters, banners, decoration, etc.

First sketches and other ideas:

For the event I also made a map, provided with the chosen color.
At the event each guest made a polaroid picture, pasted it on a provided card, added some information (name, organisation,...) and pinned it on the map. 
That way we had an idea from were our guests were.

The first event was in (Oost-)Vlaams-Brabant in an old chapel:

Brochures for GC Essegem, cultural center of Jette

For the third time in a row GC Essegem* asked me to illustrate their seasonal brochure. 
And, yay, once again I have the honor to do whatever I want! Full trust :). Thank you Essegem!

The new brochure will be ready in august. Updates will follow.
This is what I made the last two times.

Last summer I've been trying to draw whales for weeks. Since then I feel a bit more confident about my animals (they don't all look like mashed-up monsters anymore). I even decided to reuse some of my wale drawings for a pattern. And yes, it was a lot of fun!
I might try patterns again with other animals, like those long dogs. 
How are they called again? Teckels?

January 2019

For the last edition I drew a lot of mannekes. I don't know the English word for mannekes
little men? Small people? Anyway, I guess the photo's explain everything.

I also made postcards. Accidently they were delivered in A5 format, instead of A6. 
But with two stamps they can still be send (in Belgium at least)!

Drawing bicycles and babies is fun!

Last month one of my best friends got a baby, a special occasion, since I've known her my whole life. I was asked to make the birth announcement and of course I felt very honored!
Even better: for the first time ever I didn't experience drawing babies and bicyles as a struggle.
(for the record: illustrated babies easily look like old grumpy men รณr aliens, bicycles are just technical disasters). But this time... I really enjoyed drawing them :)!
To be repeated?

Cake with mannekes

My god, a dream came true! I was asked to illustrate a cake!
Definitely worth repeating :).
