Color Sketches

Some color practice. Just started watching True Blood, and boy do I want to visit New Orleans some time. Love the mood and setting of the show. The other sketches were random doodles that came too mind.

The truth about TV fortune tellers

This series of illustrations tells the truth about the TV fortune tellers. You may think they are total hacks, but maybe they're the real deal?

The Swamp
In a swamp not so far away lays the house of the fortuneteller you may know from the television. The swamp is the place where people get lost, cars dissapear and souls get stolen. Campers are scattered across the swamp and lost things never to be found again. The house is put together with junk from the swamp.

Tv Broadcast Room
The broadcast room spreads the message of the tv oracles worldwide.

The Study Room
Learning how to predict peoples fortune is not a trick, it's a lifelong study of the mystique. A family car used as study platform is one of the many remnents of the unfortunate swamp victims used as decoration in the study room.

The Work Room
This where the stuff of nightmares are made! Frog Legs, life chickens, money of the greedy, alligator eyes or the lost souls of the fallen are just some of the ingredients used for concuctions with effects no normal human wants to comprehend. The work room is built in an old camper toppled on it's side.

Farewell Lost

Ah Lost what a wonderful time we had. Heres a drawing of hurley with a hurley bird chick and a stack of libby towels. Nerd points for anyone who understands what the hell I'm talking about.

The Witches

Ah The Witches how I loved that book when I was small, correction I still love it :). I bought a bunch of Roald Dahl books to relive some of the more scarier and amazing moments of my childhood. A part of the fun of the books came from the charming pen illustrations done by Quentin Blake. 
I don't know if it was because of my birthday, but in a nostalgic fit of creativity I started drawing witches Quentin Blake Style! And the second pencil sketch was me trying to capture the scary insane comical feel of the witches drawn by Quentin. For the fans of the book I even drew some squared off feet. And yes I know they wore normal shoes in the book, but I liked the idea too much :)

Interior Sketches

I'm practicing my interior sketches. Trying go  from pen doodle to black and white sketch and set a mood in one fluent go. Feeling more confident with every sketch I do, hopefully resulting in a quicker more efficient workflow. I even reaaranged my desks so that I can quickly switch from my drawing table to digital drawing.

Cheap motel with a hint of hopper

A test in creating depth by using color temperature and color. The inside of the room kinda reminded me of a hopper painting, maybe it's a book on my desk... Maybe I will redo the floor of the room to make it feel less like grass, but I kinda like the chaos it creates :)

De Breuklijn : Matte Painting and an IMDB Listing!

During my graduation I participated in the graduation project of some fearless animation students. I could do some dali based sky matte paintings, which was very fun to do :). The short is doing pretty great, it has been shown from India to germany (http://shortfilmcentral.com/film/1103/ ). And the most awesome part is that I have my own imdb page and due to my showing off my imdb page to just about everyon I'm up in popularity with about 750%.

Random >>Speed>> Doodle

Somehow when I draw a random portrait people always seem to know the person. So for all of you out there who know what the name of the person in the portrait is, please let me know :)
