I like to draw things. I guess this is as good as any platform to show my drawings.

Drawing: Koornbrug ca. 1900 (prints for sale)

Leiden is a magical place, filled with history reaching back well into medieval times. It played an essential role in the war against the Spanish. From May until October 1574, the city was besieged by the Spanish. By cutting the dikes, the geuzen were able to relieve the city and on the 3rd of October, the siege was broken. Nowadays, this...

Design: minimalist free Rocket League Octane wallpapers

As I’m cleaning out my design backlog, I stumbled upon these Rocket League wallpapers which were quite well-received on reddit’s /r/rocketleague, so I will repost them here if you stumble upon them so you can download them for free. There’s a few variants; for phones (both 16:9 and 18:9), for dual screen setups, for widescreens, and with different backgrounds. I...

Design: minimalist Eau Rouge wallpaper

To get in the mood for the Belgian Grand Prix, I made some free Eau Rouge wallpapers for your phone. Above, you can see how it looks on my LG G6. Below, you can preview the wallpaper, and there’s a link to an Imgur album featuring three different sizes: 2880×1440, 2560×1440 and 1920×1080. Preview:   >> Link to album <<...

Design: minimalist Formula 1 car

Between June and August, my internet cable broke. This meant I couldn’t browse the web or watch TV. There was an upside to all this: my productivity greatly improved. For 47 days, I was almost entirely disconnected from the world. I did a lot of designing during that time, and now I’m slowly uploading all of these designs both here...

Design: Dota World

Three weeks ago I had an idea for a design – a spherical Dota World. In an hour or so, I put this idea to paper. That was the easy part. What followed was three weeks of painstakingly coming to terms with the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator, which I, at the time, was still a novice at. I learned...

Design: Ayrton Senna’s Helmet (1990-ish)

What words could one dedicate to Brazilian legend Ayrton Senna which haven’t been said before? His career was excellently (albeit a tad biased) documented in the 2010 documentary ‘Senna’ (IMDb link) which for many was their first glimpse into the sport. Understandably, Senna’s fanbase (for a non-current driver) equals Schumacher’s. Who could forget his battles with other 80’s legends such...

Design: Damon Hill’s 1996 helmet

As a young Schumacher fan growing up in the early ’90s, Damon Hill was the antagonist I loved to hate. Not just the infamous ’94 clash in Australia which saw Schumacher take his first WDC, but also the ’96 season in which Hill defeated Schumacher. He gained some of my sympathy when he was booted off Williams for the ’97...

Design: James Hunt’s 1976 helmet (+extra)

James Hunt will always be seen as the “bad boy” of Formula 1. Not only was he famous for his ‘all or nothing’ attitude on track, his off-track escapades might even be better remembered. Hunt entered F1 in the 1973 season for Hesketh, scoring two podiums in his first season (the first being a third place in my country, the...

Design: Michael Schumacher’s 1994 Helmet (+extra)

Michael Schumacher was, and always will be, my hero. I was born in 1991, the year he made his debut. One of my first memories is watching him drive Formula 1 in 1994 and winning the title that year. I had a slot car set by Carrera which came with a poster of him on the podium in the 1993...
