bits of 8 bit

A while ago I got a rather fun request, Diego Garcia wanted to redraw one of the monsters I sketched for my last contribution to Picturebook report.
Now I can't find that drawing at this point, it's out there somewhere on the internet. But you can see Diego's work here: http://radstronomical.blogspot.com/, and here: http://themoviethegame.blogspot.com/
and here: http://drawedgoods.tumblr.com/
(along with doodles by such talented folk as Jordie Bellaire and Reed Bond).
It was there that he drew this: http://drawedgoods.tumblr.com/post/1718569194/borlo-is-a-halfling-ranger-twang-twang-arrows-b
And I thought it might be fun if I in turn were to redraw that.
So here we are, that's my roundabout way of explaining this post.

EDIT - here's Diego's version of my doodle.

Boekie boekie diary continued ~ catching up part 4

As promised, here's the back cover illustration for the Dutch children's literary magazine Boekie boekie date planner/diary for 2011.

Here are some of the sketches I made for the front cover.

Fox and Hare ~ Catching up part 3

Fox and Hare, originally uploaded by groene_inkt.

This is more work for the boekie boekie diary. These were drawings that you can cut out and then use to create a little diorama. There were more characters, so you can also use them to make your own little puppet theatre of sorts.

The Neverending Story sketches or: Catching up part 2

These have been up on picturebookreport.com for a while, but this was my last contribution there. Since then I've been frantically busy, hopefully I'll have some time in the near future to finish my next drawing.

Querido poems ~ or: Catching up (part 1!)

Okay so this has been a while. But then I've been rather busy. More on that later.
But here are the illustrations I made for a poetry anthology for children published by Querido. It's the follow up to the anthology I contributed to last year. That one is actually in reprint, since it did very well and won a small award.

Also check out some of the illustrations my friend Pyhai made for the book as well: http://snagt.net/childrens/illustration/nacht/
