Dolfinarium Slides

Dolfinarium is Europe’s largest marine mammal park. They asked me to make a 3d illustration to promote their new water slides. I modeled their new water slides and tried several perspectives to capture the full size. This proved to be tricky, the water slides of Dolfinarium are huge, and have pretty complex shapes. I eventually settled for an isometric perspective.  With an isometric perspective the things in front are as large as the things in the back. This perspective is often used to make maps, especially of theme parks, museums …

Shrink Albert Heijn

I have made a few visuals for Albert Heijn for an internal presentation. While I can not show all the visuals due to certain company constraints. I can show you the top one. This visual addresses the so called Shrinkage. Shrinkage means inventory loss. This loss can happen due to theft but also due to Shelf life or expiration date. Simply said, Shrink costs Money. So this visual shows that Shrink means throwing money away. In this visual standard Albert Heijn Packaging is used. The product being sold is “Fresh …

KOOLE contractors

I have done some work for a big Dutch Salvage company called KOOLE contractors. Most work I did was for their international Maritime Salvage branch. Which means they clean up shipwrecks around the world. The size of the machines they use is impressive. My main job was to visualize and animate their new and innovative concepts. The owner of the company mr. Koole is very keen on developing innovative but ‘cheap’ solutions for difficult Salvage problems. So I can not show all my work I made for them yet. Some are still in development. But I can show you the animation down below that I made. This is one of the solutions proposed by KOOLE to remove containers from the North Sea Seabed that are accidentally dropped their.

Portrait of my brother

This a portrait of my big brother, the fourth one in my series. My brother had tough time the past two years with a divorce. So now he is standing on one leg in Balance. Two houses depict the two households that there are now. The three lampposts are his kids. The big crane means reconstruction of his life, as well as his feet that are partially deconstructed. I must admit that for this portrait was heavily influenced by the American Realist painter Bo Bartlett. I took his composition and …

Ocean in glass sphere

This work that I made is inspired by Hieronymus Bosch. I visited the Hieronymus Bosch exhibition in Den Bosch a few years ago and I was struck by the sheer beauty of it all. One of his works called ‘The Garden of Earthly Delight‘ is a triptych oil painting. Which means that it consists of 3 panels which can be closed. When the panels are closed, there arises a new painting (see image). The exterior panels show the world during creation. I wanted to recreate that feeling of a miniature …

4 selfportraits

I fooled around with an app called Bellus3d. It gives you the possibility to make a 3d scan of your head with an iPhone x. The scan can be imported in several 3d programs, which I promptly did. So I made several self portraits. One of them looks painted, which I am really proud of. Most of the time I work with filters so that it looks like it is painted. This is the first time I used several brushes on the image in Photoshop to get that oilpainty look. …

Portrait of Joris

This number 3 in my series of portraits that I am making. This is a portrait of my good friend Joris. He is a life coach who as you can see in the portrait loves to surf. My previous portraits were more realistic. In the sense that my father and Jorrit are more or less possible in real life. With Joris I wanted it to be more surreal. The main theme of his portrait is balance. Can you figure out in how many ways I have a portrayed that theme?

Portrait of my dad

This is my 2nd portrait that I made. This one was really hard to make. Mainly because it is a portrait of my dad. When I do a portrait I want the one who is being portrayed be pleased with what I made. But if they are not pleased, I am not overly disappointed, things like style and taste differ. But with my dad it is a whole different ball game. Just felt like a kid again, who presents his drawing to his parents. Relationships with your parents can be …

Portrait of Jorrit

This is a portrait of my good friend Jorrit. Jorrit is a photographer and someone who is an all-round Handyman. This is the first one in a series of portraits I am making. When handing over his portrait I interviewed him. He was really touched by the way I portrayed him and as an artist that is the reaction you hope for. In my work process I first took several pictures of him, then I recreated him in 3d. He thoroughly enjoyed the photo shoot, especially the hair cap. But …
