kapitaal kracht


several weeks back (20th sept.) i was invited to do a short presentation as a guest of bno utrecht, a fun gathering which was held at the wonderful (but soon to be defunct) gallery and creative workspace of kapitaal in utrecht

i shared the evening together with my friends from studio mals and passionate type designer peter bilak, we each had 30 minutes to do our ‘thing’ and there were inspiring words to be heard from both parties


i was allowed to finish up with a (ridiculous) presentation; attempting (against the organisers’ advice) to present 300 slides in max. 30 minutes, eventually coming in under the allocated time by at least 10 minutes! but judging by the reactions, i managed at the very least… to entertain the crowd

once again, thanks for the (i was honoured) invitation, delicious meal and fun evening! see you all again soon i hope…




in 2012 i was asked to make the poster for an exhibition of my ballet posters at the ‘dutch poster museum’ in hoorn


i wanted to create a life-size dress made of posters but liked the small dummy/test version so much, i used that for the final poster instead…

earlier this month news reached me of the death of my uncle john a sweet man who passed away after a prolonged period of sickness aged 72 years old, them some ten days ago my week took another much darker turn when i learned of the bizarre and tragic death of my good buddy harm wimmenhove who was hit by a speeding police van late at night on his bicycle; whilst crossing a road just around the corner from my office…


i had intended to write a long piece remembering harm, his friendship, the work we did together (this very website since 2005, for example) and all that he meant to me as a person


but… sat here, now, in front of my keyboard, i realise that i don’t really feel like writing that article anymore… i miss him, that’s all… his death was sudden, tragic and has left a great number of people behind’ shocked that he is no more


my thoughts go out to his family & close friends in particular

farewell harm… we had a blast, later on i will play the track ‘phoebe’ by extrawelt from their album ‘in aufruhr’ very loud, just for you… remember?
