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.

The Amsterdam Canal Dragon

This is my application for the Amsterdam Light Festival 2019-2020. What is slumbering there in the Canals of Amsterdam? An unforeseen consequence: The dragon has been awoken. Rumors of his existence were always there. Spotty pictures of a white water beast emerged sporadically. Most people claimed it was an urban legend. But now everyone must face the truth. It is out there, in full glory. A lot is unknown about this creature. Is it a force of evil or a force of good? Maybe it just wants to be kept …

Klimaatgesprekken Flyer and Banner

For the Dutch Branch of Carbon Conversations (Klimaatgesprekken) I designed a banner and a flyer. The idea is to show real people who do their best to lower their carbon impact. Different examples are presented, like driving an electric vehicle or going on a holiday locally.  The pictures are presented like small puzzle pieces. We are all small pieces in the puzzle of lowering our climate impact. On the flyer there is a call to action ‘Discover the workshops’.

Don’t Walk Installation for Amsterdam Light Festival

This is my application for the Amsterdam Light Festival 2018. This year I was not selected to go through the second round. The theme for 2018 is ‘The Medium is the Message. Below you can read the description of my light installation called ‘Don’t Walk’. Do you dare to walk through or will you wait and obey? In the middle of the walkway two classic pedestrian traffic lights are erected. The crosswalk is visualized by red lights on the floor.  There is no traffic that needs to be regulated. The …

My son is an avid Donald Duck Magazine reader. It is one of the most popular magazines in The Netherlands, and still going strong after 65 years.

You had to come up with a ride for Disneryland Paris. My son Job came with the idea of a soapbox race. We discussed if he should …

The Cost of 3d Artwork

I would happily make some artwork on commission. My artwork can be used as an illustration in a magazine, book or website.  Al my artwork is digitally made. It is made on my computer in a virtual 3d photo studio. I call my work often 3d artwork, because the virtual photo studio enables me to work in 3d space. This give a lot of flexibility in changing the scene. Objects can be placed in the scene with ease. Camera lenses and perspective can be changed in a second. But maybe …

Desk Lamp Hood

This desklamp is made of sturdy red and white plastic. The height would be approximately 30cm’s. The idea is that the white hood could be moved around and forward to direct the light. The impression that the lamp gives is like a hooded woman.   Note: This is one of many studies for a lamp design. I have more ideas then I can eventually produce in reality. So I just share them for inspiration. Maybe some of my designs will be realized one day.
