Ray Wylie Hubbard

From Austin we drove to Waco, only to attend the concert of Ray Wylie Hubbard. I've enjoyed his music for many years, and it was fantastic to see this hero live. He also wrote a very entertaining autobiography by the way. Recommended!

Last show of 2018

For our last Shantycrew concert of this year I wanted to make a nice poster to make sure the place will be packed. First I wanted to use the bulldog logo of the bar, but it was too cartoony. So I made it more alive and added a singing sailorfish for company. Looking forward to the show!

Diary sketches

I kept a diary during my latest trip through Texas, and made a bunch of sketches and notes that need to be drawn. Here's a first few:

First night out in Austin we met a funy bunch of new friends at the Crow Bar.

 Some random bearded guys in fancy outfits at Casino El Camino

 The drunk guy in the middle was about to get his ass kicked out of the Continental Club. On his birthday!

And Junior Brown played. What a legend!

Record cover for The Jerry Hormone Ego Trip

Dutch enfant terrible Jerry Hormone himself commisioned a record cover, and it was a blast working on this thing. Inspired by the great recordcovers by Jack Davis, this one shows the band in their natural state, swinging out of the pan! (It's a dutch expression...)

New kid on the block

My Brother had another son, so I made this card for them:

A gig with the Voodoo Kit!

Shantycrew Kreuzberg are the opening band for an Instant Voodoo Kit show in Leipzig. They are fantastic, and we are happy to be invited. I made this stickerdesign to support the event. Oktober 20, tickets still available!

Braless smile

while having a morning coffee at Oranienstra├če the other day, I caught this huge (braless) smile. Days can start a lot worse...


My friend Anton was in town the other day, but he ate some bad pizza. Unfortunatley it was his birthday he had to spend on the toilet. I made this drawing to make sure he thinks of this shitty (really!) birthday with a smile.

200 years Frankenstein

Dutch moviemagazine Schokkend Nieuws has organised an exhibition during the Haarlem Comic Days, for all the artist associated with them. I have a few older pieces on display and made this new one, because the overall theme this year is 200 years Frankenstein. Yes, that book by Mary Shelley is that old already!

New Shantycrew Poster

Our last Shantycrew concert was cancelled, unfortunately, but it gave me some more time to improve the posterdesign we had.

Firts it looked like this, very sketchy.

It's got a nice painterly quality to it, but as a poster it's not really clear enough. So I drew another version of it and cleaned it up quite a bit:

The Helloweeners

Made a quick illustration for a new bandproject of my buddy Denvis, The Helloweeners. Fun stuff!

An eventfull weekend!

Quite an eventfull weekend it was! After we went to a rather crappy but funny looking Johnny Cash cover band we witnessed a huge gold heist in our street on the way home. They blew up the safe and the explosion destroyed the whole storefront on the first floor. While we were carrying our bikes over the street paved with glas and debris, we saw the robbers take off through the back window over the roof. Crazy!

Here's the news:

Some more Shantycrew Kreuzberg stuff

I was working on some new Shantycrew promotional illustrations, but was not really sure where it should go. Fist I went with the diver, but didn't like the final image enough. So I abandoned that idea and went with the angry whale tipping us over. Here's some progress and the final poster:
