This Valentine’s day I had quite a few dates. Ten to be exact. On the same evening that is of course. For this romantic evening I collaborated with Moët & Chandon (LVMH) for a special event. The evening took place at the design hotel Okura. Moët & Chandon wanted to organize something in an intimate setting with a select group of friends. So here I was facing a total of ten couples at my table (one couple at a time). Each of them very well known. Guests included Vogue Netherland editor-in-chief Karin Swerink, Glamour editor-in-chief Sabine Geurten, Esquire editor-in-chief Arno Kantelberg and many more very Read more

As some of you might now I’ve created art work for Moët & Chandon before. Now my collaboration with one of my most established clients continues. To celebrate the holidays and the end of a successful year they decided to do a little tour with me performing live-art. This time I made illustrations on glasses, champagne glasses to be exact.

A while ago I’ve designed my own bag for Eastpak Artist Studio. Together with 55 other designers, artist & celebrities from different countries we were asked to create something out of the same basic white backpack.
