1000 Heads: the book

1000 heads, my illustration book

Inspiring books for the creative type


Vandalised calendar

I have the nasty habit of doodling, sketching, pasting on, scribbling and doing other improvements in my calendars and agendas. Stuff that really should go to the sketchbooks, but it's something one can’t help doing, isn’t it?

Anyway, before throwing away these past years agendas I rescue some of the pages I like, at least digitally.


Let the ink run wild

Sometimes you just have to:

This is a video posted by Graffica on their video account, and the moleskine sketchbook is by Juan Martínez. They have some other nice shorts, like their homage to the illustrator and designer Javier Jaén:


Wilde Dieren

That's Dutch for "Wild animals". The snake rattles, Lion yawns, and the man makes a book. The man in question is Rop van Mierlo.


Herry Arifin

I find the freestyle watercolors by Herry Arifin (aka mypaintings4sale on Flickr) very enjoyable:

I paint with watercolor. Sometimes I add ink, gouache or oil pastel, depends on the mood I'd like to convey. What inspires me most to paint is the possibility to design using exciting compositions. In most cases I build my works with value contrast, although I also use color contrasts once in a while. My ultimate goal with watercolor is to keep exploring its virtues, i.e. its spontaneity and the liquid quality in it. A never ending discovery.
