Coquettish Crochet

I've been making a few new items for the summer festival markets this year. And what better fashion accessory for summer festivals than a sassy little crocheted Bikini Top & matching Tote Bag? I can't think of any.

And, the Flyer...

Oh ya, baby. The best damn party in Rotterdam is coming up in a few weeks... Pijnackerplein Bluegrassfestival. I was very happy to be asked to do the design work again this year. The organizer of this festival is Guido de Groot of Kito Cartoons. Guido does the illustrations and i try to match his vibe with my graphic design. I think it's a good marriage. And this year, not one cage fight during the process.

I really like that Guido doesn't go the 'Babe and Hot Rod' route with this fest. Not that i have anything against Babes and Hotrods, but it seems that so many festivals use that 'look'. I love the quirky-ness of the whole affair at the Pijnackerplein... a true reflection of this wild and wacky little neighborhood here in Het Oude Noorden.

Wanna see more? Click on the image and then click next to see the back of the flyer which highlights all the amazing things you can see, hear and do during this years fest.

So, if you are going to be in the neighborhood of Rotterdam, make yourself a note: 28th & 29th of June. See You There! Yeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaw!

Graphic Designs for
the Pijnackerplein Bluegrass Festival

Here's the huge A0 Poster, which nearly took my poor old Mac down for the count. The wonderful illustrations were done by the festival organizer, Guido de Groot of Kito Cartoons. I think my graphic design goes really well with his style. Very glad he choose me to do the posters again this year. You can see more of my design for Guido here and here.

These huge posters will be pasted in large advertising frames along the highway and throughout the city. More designs for the Pijnackerplein Bluegrass Festival coming soon!

Pen & Ink

I found some really nice wooden nib holders at a flea market and have since been playing around with Pen & Ink. I absolutely love drawing with a dip pen.
