Overview

I love to illustrate with simple forms and enjoy creating a feeling of construction that looks edgy, has rough forms or some kind of geometrical elements. I generally prefer elements that don't look perfect. I also like to simplify perspectives, mostly to create a distinct front design and equally distinct background.

My favorite themes are architecture and character design, especially when it comes to the female form. I like to delve into the details of a building, exploring the many corners, roofs and windows. I then create a flat design out of it, because I love to deconstruct reality like that. However, when needed, I can bring characters to life, whether it's a cute cartoon animal or an erotic pin-up, as you can see below.

When working with clients I prefer to get as much information about the project as possible before beginning work. Tell me not only about the story of your book but also for whom you wrote it. Do you have a publisher for that book or is it self-published? Do you have a motif or a color theme in mind with your story? All of this will help me to get a vision for your illustrative purpose that I can then mull over and come up with a proposal for.
