Surprise, surprise: you can hire me. I'm available for animation, illustration and editorial work.
Started out at Art School, doing painting, moved into illustrating for various Dutch magazines, like the Alternatieve Konsumenten Bond, TV Studio, Mikro Gids and eventually moved into animation. In the meantime I also collaborated on a theatre project called the Incredible Thinking Man, produced some talkshows and worked as art director for a theatre/animation production called Amleth.
Got a regular job (to my surprise) making flash animations for a company called BitMagic. Worked there for two years and loved it, until it went bankrupt, as any decent dotcom did in those days.
At the moment I'm freelancing again.
Some recent employers are: Grapes , Valkvisuals and ncrv.nl, MacFan. At the same time I'm also editor for the website of Dutch comix-magazine Zone5300.
Until 2001 I formed part of this collective of Dutch artists, together with Liz Chute & Sander Dikstra. They're still going strong, but I only work with them occasionally now.
The play 'Amleth', performed in 2001, is based on the a 10th century manuscript by a monk called Saxo Grammaticus. If the title sounds familiar, you're correct: William Shakespeare got his 'Hamlet' from the same source.
Technically innovative, this play combines live actors in front of an animated backdrop. The animations were made in Flash, and can be controlled 'live', through a keyboard. This allows for split-second timing and offers the actors lots of freedom and room for improvisation.
My work consisted of art direction, additional animation and general digital cleaning.
