My best friend - and biggest fan of my drawings - Lies, asked me to make an illustrated Christmas portrait of her, together with her fiancé and cat. But ofcourse! I lóve doing these kinds of things, it's very relaxing.
She send me some pictures and I 'morphed' them together (sketch, sketch, sketch) to create the ultimate family picture.
A selection of my work (artistic portraits) will be exhibited in beauty lounge OMORFIA, Hoogstraat 50 in the heart of Antwerp.
You can visit it every day except tuesday from 11h till 19h, untill februari.
Together with a beautiful Congolese model from Amsterdam, Debby Kundenga, and my make-up artist Alisa Acx, I made a very colorful fashion editorial. We worked both in studio and on a simple and sober location nearby my appartment in Ghent. If you are interested in the results (and the brands we worked with), you should read further!
For a month, two artists and two photographers, including myself, accompanied the 'Brieljante' residents of the residential blocks on Groene Briel.
Some people have lived in these residential blocks for decades, others recently. Everyone now knows the Rabot towers, but the Groene Briel is more isolated from the rest of the neighborhood, and is still unknown to many residents of Ghent. With this project we want to put the residents and their beautiful stories in the spotlight and give them the attention they deserve.
The portraits can be admired in the coming months at various locations near the Groene Briel.
I'm a big fan of natural elements, such as flowers, so I desperately wanted to experiment with flowers in portraits. Together with Alisa, the make-up artist I work with the most, I organized some collabs with models. I bought A LOT of artificial flowers and we did all the photosessions in studio. Interested in some of the results?
On my blog I write about the process of improving my skills, about grabbing every chance I get to become more experienced and about learning from ups and downs. Besides that, I write about everything that inspires me, like film, photography, paintings and psychology.
