Klimaatgesprekken Flyer

This is a flyer I designed for the Dutch Carbon Conversations.  This cartoon styled figure wants to have a lower impact on the climate and doubts what is the better choice: Chicken or Cheese? While cheese is the vegetarian choice, chicken has way less impact on the climate then cheese. Cows produce a lot of methane and use a lot of water. Chickens are very efficient in turning their food into meat. The character is rendered in a 3d engine. I modelled the cheese and the chicken. The character was …

Rings

Sometimes I am just inspired by a certain shape. In this case it is rings. I will just make a series of visuals with rings. Exploring different techniques and styles. This one is inspired by the recent solar eclips.   These stars have a seventies hand drawn vibe.   An eye in the distance, up close little spikes.

Ball in a cup Loop

I made this looping animation of a ball in a cup. The ball makes the wood bounce a bit. I posted this animation on reddit. A few people thought it was real and wondered how this was possible. That was a fun reaction to get. Wait a minute for it to load (is 17mb). I tried several gif makers but or the files became large or cut of some of the final frames making the loop less smooth. So I just posted the whole mp4 here.

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 …

Hydra Desk Lamp

The hydra desk Lamp is inspired by the mythology of the many headed water snake called Hydra.  The desk lamp would be made of a flexible metal which can be bend in all directions. You could even bend it around a pole. The metal is sturdy enough to carry the weight of 3 bulbs without flexing. The 3 bulbs could also be bend in different directions providing extra flexibility when necessary.  The red wire is a resemblance of a snake tongue or poisonous tail. The length of this lamp would …

Bulbed Pendant Lamp

This pendant lamp is made of white semi transparent half spheres. This will make the light more diffuse and magical. This would be rather large lamp with a height of 60/70 cm and a diamter of 40/30cm.     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.

Dragon Tooth Desk Lamp

This is desk Lamp based upon a tooth. I can not recall how I exactly came upon the idea. But the shape of a big tooth popped into my mind when I made this design. The point of the tooth supports the small lamp. The lamp can be pointed in different directions with the small stick at the end. The on/off button is conveniently placed at the bottom. Matte chrome and red are the main colors.     Note: This is one of many studies for a lamp design. I …

Floating Bulb in Copper Mesh Hood

This lamp made of copper wire is a way to present out of the box thinking. In this case the shape of the copper mesh embraces the lamp…nut is essence not necessary. The bulb hangs from the ceiling spreading its light. While I like my own idea very much, I don’t think it is practical.

HeadBulb

The matrix is strong in this one. The brain is connected to the wire, spreading the light with the mouth. The mouth is wide open keeps the bulb fixed between the teeth. This head would be made of ceramic and have real-life dimensions.
