Born in 1969, it took me quite a while to find my right lane in life. After graduating from business school, fulfilling my draft duties and working a zillion odd jobs, I eventually came around to the conclusion that I wasn’t executive material. Always having felt itchy fingers around a box of crayons and a piece of paper, my last time of getting sacked finally made me decide to take the plunge and try my luck in the field of freelance illustration. I named my studio “Dutch Courage Graffix” and haven’t looked back since.
My artwork heavily gravitates around the field of Kustom Kulture and my drawings and paintings usually have more or less of a “cartoony” touch. I obviously have a predilection for automotive work, especially when it is hot rod related. I started out working in traditional media, but these days all artwork gets done in Illustrator and Photoshop on my Mac.
I live in the small Dutch town of Heythuysen with my girlfriend Claudy. Together, we have two kids: Koen and Vera. Look for more examples of my work on my studio website:
