I was lucky to have the chance to design the Debut Album for my friends Polina and Aaron and their band "LINKAA" this year. We chose the Pangolin as the key visual, to honor this special, versatile creature, as it is at the brink of extinction.

Designing collaboratively can pose a great challenge, if you don't do it right. From my experience it works really well, when files are passed on chronologically between designers. That way we get our own space and time to work on it in our secret chamber. After some chamber time...Read More
Sharing VOICES OF TRANSITION along the way // USA, July & August 2015 // As I'm the kind of person, that feels guilty about leaving a giant CO2-print in the air by crossing the ocean, I do try to make up for that as much as I can by sharing inspiration and goodness as well as absorbing and receiving inspiration as much as I can, just like a sponge, wringing myself out when back home to share new ideas and what I've seen.Read More

[Visual notes taken during a talk on the Blue Economy Projects (102!!!) by the amazing Gunter Pauli.]
WHAT IS THE BLUE ECONOMY?
"The Blue Economy goes beyond the Green Economy. The present employment crisis, especially amongst the young does not permit us to pursue a business model that aims to cut costs by cutting employment, a model that offers the best for everyone's health and the environment as the most expensive. Time has come to shift towards a competitive business model that allows producers to offer the best at the lowest prices by introducing innovations that generate multiple benefits, not just increased profits. This economic philosophy was first introduced in 1994 by Prof. Gunter Pauli when asked by the United Nations to reflect on the business models of the future. Now, substantiated by over 180 concrete cases, it is increasingly clear that it is possible to generate more revenue, while generating more jobs and still compete on the global market."

Creating together. An exploration of the abyss.
A 9-day exploration of working on a theme, structure and work flow together. The result is still in the making, but we've started with some illustrations and sculptures (by project partner Philipp Stulz), made of shiny tin, and dark fireclay. The plan for the realization of my illustrations is to do screen-printing, so what you see here is not final at all yet.

I couldn't be happier, finding my dad copy my art and doing so, even dealing with the challenge of imitating water-ink-drawings on a stone wall. Go Daddy!
This month my dad had asked me for high-quality- prints of the Animals I drew a couple years ago. Why? Because he was inspired and motivated to eternalize them on a (honestly pretty brittle) wall in our garden. I remained impressed, by how well, he copied them. You can find the originals in my portfolio and at the end of this blog entry. Has any of you ever had your own work copied by someone?
In collaboration with friend and illustrator Lucie Van Der Elst we created a playful photobooth during the OuiShare Fest, Conference dedicated to the Collaborative Economy, that took place in Paris, May 5–7 2014. Through the DIY-OuiShapes Photobooth the Fest-Attendees had the chance to REALLY get in shape. Take a look and explore the collaborative and interactive spirit of creating playful sceneries together!
A BIG THANK YOU goes out to La Reserve Des Arts Paris for their support with recycled material waste, creating more sustainable material chains.
