‘Bohemian Vintage’ / Art Direction & Photography – session 1
This is a selection of a recent Art Direction & Photography with my good friend & professional model Alice la Vie.
Having a massive interest in photography, and only recently started to pursue a more varied selection and style to my work worthy of serious dedicated art direction. Point & shoot right?
There has been so much amazing feedback to my photography, this together with wanting to steer clear of Architecture as the main field of study, so decided to arrange a couple of photoshoots. The female form is the next logical step from architecture, with a good study of light and shadow, but colour rather than black & white is a huge challenge for me.
Alice is great to work with, we get on very well, she is also an alternative model, more to the point she is highly adaptable at pushing her own creativity, and certainly not a flake like many other ladies that I have come across. She is well aware of her limitations and knows how to push herself to achieve results. On the day we both worked super hard gathering as much variation to our styles as possible, throwing around a good amount of ideas and inspired themes. This selection of clothing ( models own ) gave me a good opportunity to mix up the colour & blend a vintage lighting style into the composition. Here you can also see a good selection of prints chosen from this particular photo session as further aesthetic communication. Rather than just taking random shots, there was some format involved in producing high quality images for a purpose.
On the day we completed 3 strong visual sessions / themes + a hundred or so test shots & deletions.
My conclusion is that the photography part was easy, with a little direction. Now, if you are working as a team, it is essential to communicate, this allows entire creative freedom with super positive results.

After completing my second year as student in Cross-Media design without any trouble. I used my vacation to spend more time with my girl, my passion – training athletics and illustrating.
This project is a result of experimenting with new techniques to illustrate portraits and a passion for stories from legendary athletes in track and field. Myself, Bram Vanhaeren ran my first race when I was 5 years old and still compete today. It’s my favorite sport and I love to spend my evenings on the track with my friends.
After picking some of my favorite athletes, having fun illustrating and playing with colors. I have decided to share it with you. Five illustrations, five stories, five legends. My love translated in colors.

SACRED Print pack detail for A Company Of Wolves -
Inclusions: selected Architecture, border detail, identity, transparent overlays, front & rear id cards, packaging + stickers.
A Company of Wolves is an ideal experience of Art & Design aimed at serving the public with a purposeful injection. To fuel.
Many art related platforms & sites are strategically curated to form a community of a simple unified digital experience. This is all well and good, but where do traditional portions of practice reside? The only realistic + tangible form of progress to further a varied aesthetic is in print. This view of the collective / collaborative pack is shared & exercised by the design, curation, print & production of ‘Print packs‘. This is a well structured addition to the art community, in which we will also seek to adopt further members based upon skill, technical knowledge, consistent communication, style, but more importantly growth of the entire group dynamic.
A Company Of Wolves differs in that :
- Descriptive theory contained within our studies
- There is unique exposure
- Curated packs
- Our audience shares gallery / exhibition level visual appeal
- The art experience is sensory
- Ongoing, unified ideating, on a personal level
- There are no visual constraints
- Every piece is highly collectable
…SO BEWARE OF WOLFISH HUMILITY! LOYALTY IS PACK.

6 months ago I was lucky enough to get to join the crew behind 43 magazine – the only skateboard mag based out of NYC, and a creative and artistic approach to skateboarding through the eyes of some of the worlds best skateboard photographers. Issue 002 has been on the stands long enough now that I can share a preview for those of you who haven’t seen it yet. It’s available in skateshops and independent book stores around the world. Go grab yourself while they’re still out there.

After Fiddling for a lot of time with the idea of using a tablet for my work and a few failed attempts at it from the past, i decided to do an entire piece using the tablet and Photoshop. I decided to go full on with it for this piece and actually start with something more challenging than a simple character so i just tried to go as far as i could with it and learn while doing it. The result is this piece i made for an upcoming book featuring my character doctor een, i hope you like the results!
