Since the shooting of 'Dimitri', the tv-series I got to work on, ended in April, I've picked up my graduation film where I left off. And about a week ago I finally finished it, and thereby my animation studies!

My film is called 'Mie', and here's a little preview:

Long time since my last post, but it's been a busy summer: I got the chance to work as an intern at Beast Animation, a studio specialised in stop motion animation! I already learned a lot, and was very lucky to get involved in some great projects, like the TV-special of 'Dimitri in Ubuyu':

A day in the air

These are a few photoshop drawings I made some weeks ago for a friend (who is a stewardess). She used them in a presentation for children, to explain what a day in the life of a pilot and stewardess can look like.

Life as it is: Ikea

Every weekend, for over three years now, I've worked as a shop-assistant at the Ikea store in my neighbourhood. Not the most fun job in the world, but the additional income made a lot of other very fun things possible (travels, studies, shopping :), ... ).
Nevertheless, the following months will be the last: I’ve decided to quit this year!

To celebrate my departure I made this self-portrait in Photoshop, with in the background soft toys from the children’s department. 

I do think/hope I look a bit less grumpy in real life, though :).
