Illustrations and randomness by Sjors Prinsen.

Thought it was about time for a new profile pic so I made this Selfie :)

This was a random idea that popped up; A robot getting tattooed, of course instead of ink they would use a welder I guess? ;)

I drew a new picture of Juna traveling through the desert! Really satisfied how this one turned out since I don’t usually draw without lines.

I’ve started working on the desert concept a bit more, still not too happy how it turned out but I have to move on!

Desert landscape study, practicing with color and landscape. I’m still getting into drawing backgrounds, deserts are always fun to draw!

I drew another guy, his name is Ramas, he’s blue. Time to go deeper down the rabbit hole.

Here’s the first render of another one of the main characters: “Fever”.

Lately I’ve been working on a personal project that has been on my mind since the start of the new year. Now that the concept is beginning to take shape I’ve started doing environmental and character design. This is the first draft of one of the characters that I’ve had in mind, I’ll call her “the girl in red” for now. Expect more of this in the near future. :)

Ru-fi-o! This guy was so awesome when I saw him in Hook years ago so he was a lot of fun to draw! Here’s the scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Um8mMa5w41A

I wanted to try out some new brushes made by Kyle Webster so I decided to draw this little Octorok from the Legend of Zelda games. :)

I love Frenden’s brushes, they make every stroke seem so much easier!

Draw like a six year old! →

The thing that really struck me, working with a classroom full of six-year-olds, was that kids draw without any reservations or inhibitions. They just have fun and are excited about putting their ideas down on paper, about making something tangible with just a marker and their imagination. And if they’re young enough, it doesn’t matter how primitive or messy their drawings might look. When it comes to drawing, kids are FEARLESS.

A very inspiring blog post from illustrator Phil McAndrew about his passion for drawing. I recognize a lot of issues that the people he describes in his post use as an excuse to stop drawing. I’ve always loved drawing but I haven’t done it as much as I’d like to these past few years.

Dawn of a new day

It has been quite a while since I last used this blog so I thought it was about time for an update. This blog was originally part of my final project that focussed on a new human subspecies known as the Social Cyborg. I recently graduated and am now standing at the beginning of a new road leading to the rest of my life. 

When I was busy working on my comic book about the Social Cyborg my love for drawing was rekindled. I was drawing every day trying to get the book done before my deadlines and it made me realize how much I missed drawing and doodling. Because of this I’ve decided to give a new purpose to this blog. As of today this blog will be used to post new drawings, doodles, illustrations and other things that I find interesting and want to share with the rest of the world. 

So press those “Follow” buttons and join me in this new quest!

The Domesticated Cyborgs →

The deep union of ourselves with our inventions is not new. If a cyborg means a being that is part biological and part technological then we humans began as cyborgs, and still are. Our ancestors first chipped stone scrapers 2.5 million years ago to give themselves claws.
