Portrait of Joost

I made this portrait of my friend Joost. We go way back…I have known him for about 25 years. I have a memory of him that he was tied up on a pole wearing a toga….(long story..something..something…fraternity). But I also see him who is actively seeking spiritual liberation.

MVI update video

For Stichting Rijk I made, together with my friend Jorrit, a video about sustainable procurement. That is called MVI in Dutch. In this video experts of RIJK explain what kind of possibilities there are for sustainable procurement for the Dutch Municipalities. My friend Jorrit manned the camera, I did the interviews and production. Together we edited the video to make an interesting and entertaining story. You can watch the video here below.

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 …

Sky Dive Albert Heijn

One of the other visuals I made for Albert Heijn was called Skydive. This was made for an invoicing project within their organisation. This image had to convey to take a leap of faith in the new project. In the image a cartoon figure jumps out of an airplane followed by big number of papers with euro signs on it. The character has a hand scanner in her hand pointing at the viewer.

Shrink Albert Heijn

I have made a few visuals for Albert Heijn for an internal presentation. 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 Money”. This money is past its expiration date so a discount sticker is put on the packaging.

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.

Procurement land, Dutch Government

I made a map (in Dutch) of procurement land (Inkoopland). This was commissioned by a collaboration of government agencies. The aim for this map is to give people who work within the Dutch municipalities more insight in the procurement lexicon. It also serves as a way to get people signed up for a procurement course. The design is a like a page in an atlas where different highlights of a land are shown. Every city and place has some link with the procurement lexicon. The maps was printed on an …

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 …
