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 feat is still celebrated among the locals, among which I count myself. In the run up to the festivities, I...

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 and on RedBubble. The first of these is this minimalist F1 car design. Each element has exectly four anchor points,...

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 through practice, and I am quite happy with the result. I am hoping to get this approved by Valve to...

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 as Prost and Mansell. The 1988 dominance of the MP4/4 and the resulting rivalry between Senna and Prost puts even...
