morrigan from darkstalkers. i'm not even familiar with the game but i am familiar with the character, and wanted to see how the design translated into my own way of drawing..

dogs



portrait of a lonsdale kid

today's the day of dutch caricatures! this is inspired by a dutch teenage subculture which involves listening to hardcore techno, riding cheap scooters, and a list of other stereotypes that may or may not apply to all of them.

prostitutes


i live near a red light district in Utrecht, called the Zandpad. it basically consists of a bunch of house boats - boats floating in a canal with little rooms in them where the hookers stand in windows lit up with red lights. it may sound weird, but welcome to holland, haha. i pass it practically every day on my way to the grocery store which inspired the above drawing.. a lot of the prostitutes there are quite young. but in order to avoid misrepresenting the available selection at the zandpad, i drew the following:

welcome to my town



some drawings based on people that hang around my neighbourhood. mostly practice on how to draw characters using primarily shapes and forms.

these include: boy sporting the 'maroccan' dressing style with blinding white clothing, little girl that lives in the house across from ours, and the bottom left is how overweight women in their 40s dress here. commonly referred to as the "libelle zomerweek typetje."

portrait of a californian airhead


caricature of audrina from the hills. i was captivated by her perpetually blank airhead expression.

b+w test



for some reason this drawing seems really chris sanders inspired. a coloring test: i did the shading in black and white and added the colors with layers afterwards.

stylish smoker


pointless but fun.

geert wilders

caricature of a dutch politican, geert wilders. he's a huge racist jerk who wants to ban the koran and kick all immigrants out of the netherlands. for some reason he also bleaches his hair. i wanted to capture his unique ugliness with this portrait.
