– Als een ander wel kon janken werd zijn grijns alleen maar groter
– When an other could cry his grin only became bigger
Some people might this guy’s riding saai and boring but I really like Big Mig’s style for it looked his smile got wider as the hurtin’ got worse. And yes, he also won de Wereldtitel tijdrijden besides the five victories in la Tour de Francia.

Onze keus

– Our choice
You asked for it so I delivered. Before the start of the “performaing art” as them folks at the boekenwinkel put it, I said that i would laugh my ass of if I could sign in two books. It turned out that I made drawings in 20 books, sold one painting, got een opdracht for another and now mail is coming in for an expo in Berlin… Ik zeg #goodbusy.

Mijn familie

– My family
The two people I’m most closely related to. They are Kim de Vries, my partner for the past 15 hard years, she cooks the nicest dinners and does the photography for my website. Plus my son Sam van Eijk, he’s a professor, the friendliest guy in the universe next to me and the main reason to rediscover my verworven vaardigheden, my values, myself.

Wat doe jij eigenlijk?

– What do you do?
The stuff I do is merely a reflection on my disbehaviour. I do drawings on canvas with Posca stiften and ProMarkers. I do not sketch cause I find that chances either come around or come back. Make a decision and draw the line.

Expo II

– Expo II
I like stripboeken. I used to read comics as a kid instead of the books they gave me in school. I enjoyed learning a lot from them and now two of my canvas are exposed at stripboekhandel De Noorman, but mainly because of the books on Coppi and Pantani.

Expo II

Expo I Plus!

– A massive load of canvas on wielrennen is up in the windows at Hijman en Arends, needless to say I’m pretty content. But even better is the fact I’m going to sit at a table in their shop on saturday 23 july (10:00-16:00) to perform art while making drawings in books people buy that day. Totally enthousiast and also really looking forward to it. So have a couple of beers less these next two weekends, save up some money, come spend your coins in Arnhem on any cycling/sports book and I’ll make een tekening in je boek. Or… we’ll just talk Tour de France.
