I'm Eric van den Boom a Dutch freelance artist specialising in illustration, lettering and graphic design since 2005.
A childhood love for the graphics on skateboards, album sleeves, t-shirts and gig posters has influenced me ever since. Inspiring me to study multimedia design first and then illustration. The work I've created over the years has caught the eye of clients like Ray Ban, Netflix, Rivella, Subway Restaurants, Warsteiner.

Ryan Olbrysh @ Art Director, Las Vegas Weekly
"From sketches through final art, Eric was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is one-of-a-kind and I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a truly unique and memorable illustration."
Frank Burghout - Art Director @ Q-Dance - Amsterdam
"I can absolutely say I had the privilege to work with Eric. The way he combines his craftsmanship, love for the art of printing and combines them with all the new digital methods and demands while keeping an eye on the deadline is a very rare and sought after combination. The icing on that cake is that Eric has a very easy going character and a sharp creative mind. He has the total package and skills to make him a go-to designer for a vast array of projects."
Roderick Johnson @ Brand Arts - USA
"Eric was a consummate pro to work with. He was patient and committed to the creative process, not to mention a super nice dude. I am very pleased with the results we achieved!"
Cedric Chauveau CEO @ Kothai - France
"Working with Eric, was very easy. He caught our idea quickly and made great designs. We worked twice together and will certainly ask for new stuff."
Dr. No @ DoNo-Effects
"Almost eight years ago we met. From that time on I totally trust in his vision and designing capacity. Because I truly believe he is as passionate about his work, as I am about my product. This ended up in this amazing sometimes magical relationship. Eric has the capacity to extract my thought and shape it into something more beautiful that is sometimes beyond my imagination."
Justine Doswell @ Preachers Son
"We had a wonderful experience working with Eric on each step of the process of creating and delivering an image and colour design for our male and female t-shirts. He was an inspiration, very enthusiastic and extremely professional. Everyone comments on how beautiful our t-shirts are and that's a testament to his work. We look forward to the next opportunity we can work with Eric."
Nick Royale @ Imperial State Electric
"I stumbled upon Eric's art and was blown away by his designs. His work is so diverse and at the same time very consistent in terms of his unique style and approach. What a beautiful piece of classic rock and roll imagery he delivered. If the record bombs it has most certainly nothing to do with the artwork!"
