Buying, licensing and things like that
My work is sold worldwide by art and poster sellers. But the cheapest way to buy artwork is directly from the artist. That's me;). You can save about 40 to 50% this way. Are you interested in my work? Please don't hesitate to contact me at creatis@hotmail.com.

How does it work?
You can buy a high quality print of my work in several sizes and materials. I can make my work available at Peecho. A fine art printer. At Peecho You order and pay the artwork and have it delivered at home or at your company worldwide.

Technique
It may sound not very arty, but all my work is digitally edited one way or the other. There are 3 ways:
1. I draw by hand and edit it
2. I edit my own photographs
3. I create things completely digital

The art is to make it look not digital. That is a long process. The big secret is that you have to make lots of mistakes. Failure after failure. That's my talent I guess...

Background
At the age of 17 I went to the Amsterdam Graphic School. The same school my grandfather started his graphic career. I failed. The technical part and straight lines in paint and ink drove me mad and I decided to study business. I succeeded. My goal was to work in advertising and marketing. I succeeded again and worked for agencies and companies. I merely worked on the creative side as a copywriter, marketer and translator. Besides that I worked as an illustrator because I could not stop drawing. After the first day I worked with Photoshop I couldn’t stop creating at all. At the time internet appeared I knew what I had to do; combining text and design.

Dream
At office hours I work as a copywriter and editor for the world wide web. In my spare time my graphic work keeps me busy. It’s my oxygen. I don’t have much time left to market or sell my work though. That’s no problem because I love it and have an income. On the other hand I want to spend more time at my artwork. So if I could sell more that would be great. I already have some good selling points now. Ultimate dream is to travel and under while making pictures, edit them and sell them in order to travel and make more pictures. Who knows.
