Hey everyone! I recently created a comic for Codeglue, a dutch game company that develops the arena shooter game ‘Antegods’. Below you see the cover and a page from the comic (1 of 22). If you want to learn more about the process of making this comic, then have a look at the interview on Codeglue’s blog over here.
The story is written by Niels ‘t Hooft & based on the artwork made by Codeglue’s design team. The comic art & character design is done by myself; and Maroussia Jansen did a great job helping me out with the basic colors! ( Thanks again!). And this is the game the comic belongs to:
For years I have been doing art-project together with Gijs Hermans (currently art director at Ronimo Games). And recently we made this Coffin Crusher illustration together. I did the sketch below, and Gijs did all the hard work turning it into a fancy image ;0 I think it turned out great!
Hey! These are some recent maps I made -and I felt like sharing them ;0
The top map is a game-board for the card-game ‘Gang Up!’. Just to explain a little more about that; the city-blocks that have white boarders, is where you place your card stacks. The map itself shows ‘Crimetown’, the fictional city where the game takes place. And the buildings on the map refer to the characters & situations that are part of the game. I made the entire map out of shapes in PS.
The middle map is the floor-plan for a huge manga convention in the Netherlands, the ‘Abunai’. The convention takes place in a huge hotel and it’s a maze! So I updated a very basic map, to this one; using clear colors & icons to help the visitors navigate the hallways It’s also visually connected to a timetable that is printed on the backside.*
The map at the bottom is for the website of cosplay model ‘Azzy’, and the locations & feel of the map represent her interests.

During the last few years I’ve been practicing anatomy by attending live drawing classes. And although I made hundreds of sketches, I never really came around to actually make a more refined illustration of a just a model. I think i’ts because I have the strong urge to mix everything up with all kinds of fantasy costumes/designs etc. Anyway, I tried to avoid that this time, so here are some simple nude-illustrations. Enjoy!
Click on the icons to get an overview of the various personal projects I work(ed) on.
