In control

  • Touwtjes in handen
  • Stringhe nelle mani

Pulling strings. Master of puppet. Skipping the rope. Giving accord to the cord. Life’s bananas, a thin line, but I’m an artist.

Monkey

  • Singe
  • Aap

A monkey without a tail is still a monkey with a tale. My 26th book is finished and though it’s most likely to become an never-ending story of books and books and books… Ich bin stolz wie ein Affe.

Vooruitgang

  • Progress
  • Fortschritt

Continuously all evolves. But whether that makes me a monkey, a kameleon or simply mensch are 3 questions in one. And this turnaround only has 2 options… So whatever happens, stopping or standing still are the same 1.

Feel – Play – Think – Work

  • Voel – Spel – Denk – Werk
  • Fühl – Spiel – Denk – Arbeit

Confusing emotion with ratio was one of my many mistakes. Or should I say one of my few lessons. The serious side of me needs to be immature and natural as a monkey. The trivial side of me would like to be cultured and logical as a man. To were or being are both part of creating. Not truth. Neither lies. Art is part love, a part indefinable and all life.

I’d like to get my work more seen, more read, more known. So I uploaded most of it to Behance. To share it so you can share it. The majority is in Dutch, but feel free to ask for translations or more info. Some of it is about cycling, some books are for kids and most of it is autobiographic. Enjoy the words, the pictures and spread the love.

15 Gedichtenbundels

  • 15 Libros de poesía
  • 15 Poesi bøger

All poetry took was stop reading that book, and start taking time to write a rhyme. Sometimes one picture or one sentence just isn’t enough to express one emotion. I’ve written 15 gedichtenbundels about me and my thoughts but haven’t managed to get them published yet. So I guess it’s time to go look for an uitgever… all sharing and help are more the welkom.

25 Boeken

  • 25 Liber
  • 25 Bücher

What would an autobiographic artist be without a book? Romanticism, psychoanalyses, pain, ambiguity, storytelling, childhood, truth, ego, self reflections, pictures, fun and comparisons. I’ve written 25 books about me and my thoughts but haven’t managed to get them published yet. So I guess it’s time to go look for an uitgever… all sharing and help are more the welkom.

The always busy people form Mantel wanted artwork, so I got to work. A painted canvas and 60 riso-prints were the result of some nice teamwork. So all work and no play, you think. Ofcourse not, we had a couple of beers to celebrate cycling and kunst. And that worked out just fine!
