“I'm a freelance artist specialising in illustration & custom lettering“
I've been designing a lot for DrNo-Effects lately including this screenprinted wooding box for shipping DrNo effects. It is such a fun project to work on.
I'm also working on a Wah pedal named 'Holy Wahcamoly' as you can see it is still quick test mockup. The lettering is eventually going to be done in a 3d rubber print technique, and the pedal is going to be vvvvery green ;-) and mexian stylish. This one will be in stores soon.
I've also been working on designing a new DrNo-Effects pedal called 'Brain Ray', with glow in the dark ink, so the brain will light up in the dark. This is a signature pedal for Brian Ray who is the guitarist for Paul McCartney. I'm really currious how this will look on stage during a live show.
I've recently been working on developing a logo design for the Blendomatic Shop. I started off with some rough sketches and finally vectorized the artwork into a final logo
Work in progress poster illustration for Belgium dance festival The Qontinent. I started by creating some rough composition sketches then rendered a more refined sketch, and traced this sketch onto a new piece of paper with fineliners, a brush, and ink. Then scanned it into the computer and added some colour and texture. I still have to do some details and finetuning, but I guess it is almost finished.
Some work in progress for an illustration for CBI Skin Care.
The pencil sketch is approved and currently I'm tracing the lines on my lighttable using a Winsor & Newton series 7 nr.3 Brush.
Hope you like it so far!

Through my agency I was asked to create a CD cover for KPM Music House, which is the production music branch of EMI. All of their music is for use in the media, and is not for sale commercially. The brief was to create something that would immediately show to their clients what kind of music is on the CD by looking at its cover art.
As I wrote earlier the other day, I've been doing some artworks for Dr. No Vintage Guitar Effects, and it has been a really great and fun job to work on. I've also been asked to create a vintage packaging design, which is getting some nice slikscreen printing today.
Please folow Dr. No on Facebook for more news on these amazing vintage guitar effects.
