Ghost in the Machine

GHOST IN THE MACHINE. A philosophical concept in which the soul is a separate entity. The ghost controls the body as a machine operator. This work was a technical challenge laid down by Rita Quattrocci to see if I could do broad brush work. Broad brush background, and rough pencil drawing. I’ve done it, now I will return to my usual detailled work.

‘Looking at Time’ A digital experiment that ended up looking rather traditional


I didn’t expect to do much drawing this year as I was supposed to be working hard at the biography assignment. But the roof of my clients huge farm kitchen has collapsed under a tonne of snow, the budget for writing now obviously goes to French workers, beams and roof tiles. Therefore I tried the next step after finishing the ‘Ugliest City in The Netherlands’ series (It’s got a 3 Month exhibition!). I decided to mix the general effect of those images with my traditional pen drawing style. Resulting in an image built up by nearly a million tiny curvy lines. It was a nice project but I somehow had expected a more alienating image from 57 layers and complete control over colour sharpness and transparency. Think I’ll be trying something completely different next, a real challenge, like; no details.

Finally opened my web-shop at

Took me about one year since the invitation. Creating the shop is easy enough but since I had a lot of work waiting for this I didn’t really fancy the tedious job of formatting, uploading and adding key-words. But the work done, if you like my work you can now put it on the wall. insist they have high quality prints and T-shirts.
