Here are two cover ideas that I proposed to the New Yorker a few years back. The first idea is a poetic idea, hiding the shape of a turkey in a wind-tossed maple leaf. I proposed the second layout while the American Senate debated the health care bill, that later became Obama Care, it’s a doctor showing an x-ray of a broken wishbone to a turkey.
Earlier this year I participated in a logo design contest called “A New Image for Pinocchio” unfortunately for me I didn’t do as well with my logo presentation as I had hoped. It turns out this is a clear case that simple is not always better, or is it? To see the winning design solution click the link here and judge for yourself. Congrats to the winner.
A good friend asked me if I could make an Xray collage with an image of her dad’s leg, who is a retired CEO of a Dutch water company and recovering from knee replacement surgery.

I’m testing and learning the application “Procreate” to create new illustrations. So far, I love the program it’s easy to navigate and work with. I like to work on multiple drawings and because I’m playing I mix things up a lot, to find the brush, pen, etc. For now, it’s doodling, doodling and more doodling.
I’ve got this photo in the mail today. My coaster design for “LE PERCHE” a French / American restaurant located in the lovely city of Hudson. It looks like I have to go there and raise a glass.
