PhD thesis cover illustration

General / 10 May 2018

I had a lot of fun creating this cartoon-style 3D illustration about a chemical chain reaction, for a PhD thesis cover.

Vlogger — iconic vector illustration

Vlogger — vector illustration in an iconic retro cartoon style.

TV viewer — stylized isometric illustration

General / 14 April 2018

I love to experiment with different visual styles and techniques. Using the same style or technique starts boring me sooner or later, and exploring new media, styles, tools and techniques is as interesting to me as creating something.

This is an icon-style vector illustration in an isometric perspective, which I created using Blender 3D's 'NPR' line renderer named Freestyle. NPR stands for Non-Photorealistic Rendering.

As much as I like variation in styles and techniques, there are a number of recurring themes in my images, such as (retro) games, science, technology and a hint of satire every now and then.

A Little Lovely Duck in a store

News / 14 April 2018

During a visit to the Dutch city of Utrecht, I attended the Keck & Lisa store, where A Little Lovely Company's Duck lights were happily sitting on a shelf. I was the Duck's 3D modeler for A Little Lovely Company, and seeing it actually displayed in a store results in a warm, fuzzy feeling. 🙂
