A childhood love for the illustrations and logo art on skateboards, album sleeves, t-shirts and gig posters has influenced Dutch artist Eric van den Boom ever since. Inspiring him to study multimedia design first and then illustration, his true love.
The high-octane lettering and illustrations he creates under his moniker, BoomArtwork has caught the eye of clients like Ray Ban, Netflix, Subway Restaurants, Computer Arts, Xerox and Q-Dance. An experimentation enthusiast, Eric begins his projects with strong line sketches he then traces on a lightbox before layering on colours and patterns to make them pop.

Let's work together
I'd love to hear from you whether you've got a small branding brief, an illustration for a global ad campaign, some cool pattern design for your new collection, or perhaps some custom lettering to give your project a bit of flair. If you're after a creative designer with a bag of experience, I reckon I might just be the guy you're looking for. Just hit the 'request a quote' button
While every job is different, most run along those fases:
Fase 1 - Briefing
It all starts with a briefing. Maybe you've a very particular idea in mind, or just a really rough brought idea. I can help creating a idea or you provide your idea.
Fase 2 - Sketching
Based on the briefing I'll develop a concept sketch supported by a mood board and reference images. When this concept is approved I'll move on to working on a sketch of the idea. I'll send a rough sketch of the idea for your approval before I move on refining the artwork.
Fase 3 - Refining
When the sketch is approved I'll develop the final artwork based on the sketch. One revision round within the initial concept is included, additional revision rounds after this point will be billed at my hourly rate. If needed I can do a small revision round, additional revision rounds after this point will be billed. After final approval of the final artwork I’ll send the artwork in high resolution bitmap or vector depending what we agreed on.

Ryan Olbrysh @ Art Director, Las Vegas Weekly
"From sketches through final art, Eric van den Boom 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 @ ID&T - 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. As you would say, he has the total package and skills to make him a go-to illustrator 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, BoomArtwork, 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 I met Eric From that time on I totally trust in his vision and designing capacity. Because I truly believe Eric 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. We got in touch and 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!"
