And finally, my first exposition is a fact. I had lots of fun last friday filling a huge glass cabinet with my children’s book illustrations and lots of cute props!
Here are some photos of the result:
The library asked me to fill a huge 2 by 2 glass cabinet near the entrance.
I even reprinted some of my older work — I used to draw childrens book illustrations when I was still in high school. The little black sheep is a recurring character. Recently, I discovered the animations of Shawn the Sheep and I realised how much they look alike!
“De Raaf en de Vos” (The Fox and the Raven) is still one of my favorites. I think it really looks good as this glossy A2 poster! I translated the poem (the original is in french) to Dutch prose, so that children who don’t know the story can read it in the library.
The penguins! I love the penguins. I have friend who dreams of becoming a professor. He loves penguins, so I made him this poster years ago. Now I could borrow his collection of stuffed penguins for the exposition. Another friend loaned me his Lego model of the Mars Rover Curiosity (which is very, very cool. I cannot stress this enough. Lego & science = awesome!)
My sister picked up the stuffed hedgehog for me so I could recreate the “for science!” t-shirt design with stuffed animals and a real Erlenmeyer flask. Thanks, sis!

Karpe Noktem is hosting a cocktail party next week! I was asked to make a poster for the university campus. The last year I’ve been working on my illustrator skills and nowadays when I have to design a poster, I try to make the design as a vector. I’m really happy about how this one turned out. I’m learning new things every day!
There is a new master in computer security in the Netherlands: the TRU/e master in cyber security! It’s a joined program of the Radboud University and Eindhoven University of Technology.
I was asked to make a logo for the master track. Using the logos, fonts and colours of the two universities, I made a cross-over between the two styles of the universities, which represents the cooperation between Nijmegen (RU) and Eindhoven (TU/e).
Radboud University has a new marketing campaign with the title ‘Change perspective’. I made this poster to spice up the walls in the Mercator Building, where all the computer science offices are situated.
It features an impossible triangle, which can be found in the works of the Dutch artist M.C. Escher.
This was a collaboration with Bas Westerbaan.
When I started to learn Adobe Illustrator, it was a big challenge to learn how to wield the pen tool. The Bezier Game is a really cool web game that helps you to learn how all the weird hotkeys and such work in illustrator.
