It has been a while since i made an illustration as big as this. I really enjoyed making something like this again. But i noticed that i am really lazy about making illustrations, i think very quickly aaah that is good, but there is so much more to out of this. So! i will see this as a first sketch and later on i will make a better version.

acryl paint on white paper
ink for the black outlines
and some pencils for colourajustments


birthday, cake, colour, boy, young, crown, happy, candels

Every kid loves drawing, I just never stopped. 1 day my teacher in highschool told me I could go to an artschool because I was so good in all that artistic stuff. And so I did. I went to the artschool in Genk. It was a whole new world, for the first time I was completely in a world were art and drawing was important. It was so inspirational. Now I am studying at the St-Lucas in Gent for a bachelor. I still have 1 year to go. Than I can start working on my career as an professional illustrator.
