Design: Assetto Corsa Competizione Alt. Logo

When Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) was first announced, I was just experiencing my first Assetto Corsa ‘high’. I was a bit late to the party. However, I thought that AC1 lacked a bit of focus. ACC promises to be about GT3 cars, and GT3 only – featuring the Blancpain GT-series. This prompted some inspiration, so I created this ACC logo; Assetto Corsa Competizione can be purchased HERE on Steam. I highly recommend you doing so. I might do a review later.

The F1 ‘Oracle’ – Trying to predict the results for GP #15: Malaysia

Koornbrug 1900

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 finished my drawing of the Koornbrug, one of the most iconic...

Music review: ‘Every Country’s Sun’ by Mogwai

Post rock, as a genre, is hard to define. It is a mix of synthesizers and rock music, culminating in a sound that can be described as ‘atmospheric’ at best. It is even harder to suggest to someone to give it a try. The songs are often way over six minutes long and have generally very long intro’s. They have slow tempo’s, lack any real chorus and, more often than not, lack any vocals as well. At first glance, the songs are highly repetitive and monotone. They aren’t catchy. They...

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, and four handles (two anchors have none). This makes for...
