OVERHEARD is a miss-ordered diary of the dark, crude, random and occasionally funny snippets of conversation that I’ve noted down.

For a few years now I’ve taken the nonsense I hear and written it into my phone’s ‘notes’. The quotes – each out of their context – are tagged with the themes of the conversation it was taken from and it’s colour is based on its general category; MIND, AIR and BLOOD. Colour intensity is linked to the time it was written. Every quote has an illustration that embodies its narrative. The snippets are verbatim from my phone (drunken spelling and all).

Read more about the side-project on my site here.

Hi fellaz,

It’s been a while since i have time to post some of my artworks. Here it is. My recent series called ThINK™ :

” ThINK is a series of digital art blending modern and traditional art, digital painting and ink, poetry featuring the artist’s life, a sort of “tribute” that band around a single question: What’s define the soul of an artist?
Reflect on what forges the soul of an artist: his influences, his career, his successes, his failures, his encounters, love … What makes them beings apart and embody or incarnate the beauty of art in its most beautiful form. “


Amy Winehouse


Self initiated art work for my studio
“This world is but a canvas to our imagination” – Henry David Thoreau

Personal artworks created for my new studio setup. 
It’s been quite some time since my last personal piece but I have been really busy with client work :)
I am loving the new direction my Cintiq is taking me! Amazing piece of kit!
Anyway thanks for all the support so far and hope you like my future works!

ONI

Text over image // Multi-layered // Mask

Another recent addition whilst working on a couple of mask related images. Was looking at ways to produce a chrome effect to sharpen the surface and give it some depth/dimension. Using a variety of mediums, this exploration is what I would see as part of a sticker set or a board graphic.

Inspired by Ukiyo-e & the transmission of tales.

…Should mock one up!

Hello KDU staff and members,

So this is my very first post.

First i would like to thank the KDU Team and David Gensler and David Son for gaving me the opportunity to join this great and creative family.

My name is Daniël Matakupan. I’m a freelance illustrator residing in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. In the past few years I’ve worked for clients such as  TEDx Amsterdam, Sanoma Media, Publish Magazine, Funkrush Clothing and more. And now is a proud member of the KDU.

Currently I’m working on my version 2 website (with an huge update) but you can follow me on networks such as: Twitter, Behance, LinkedIn or Dribbble

Hope you like my work!

InkFace / New Development / Mixed Media :

Here is the latest edition of artwork.

In a nutshell my own development using an array of mixed media, every tool I have is being used fully and cranked hard!

This has been a long time coming, so for me, it is a milestone reached. After a few discussions around the table, plenty of caffeine, days melding into nights and nose to grind. I have been looking through a vast selection of old work that to me, is just that, old. The only way to push past this kind of ‘block’ was to scrap some, keep some, build anew. Still the same one man show, but this time, more determined with a whole trunk of focus.

I am very aware that this point was reached well over a year ago, during this swift development, one of the main factors was by reading my personal journal posts and how slow and frustrating the process has been.

To quote the previous post, production time is now much swifter, paying much close attention to mediums used + file types to ensure size aspect & resolution stays exact.

Fully confident that this will develop much further as my own language as an Artist and Designer.

You can find a page to continually reference all of my old/new personal musings & mess right here

Prima Facie/Facient :

Pen / Scan | Abstract | speed test.

Having never fully exercised working on words, except for writing & a set of png letters for poster plates years ago, thought it may be time to give it more thought.

Executed from ‘one’ file alone. One simple quickly written image to scan + 3 programs using the same file for the entire construction of the image.

Now, the original file was intended for a collab weeks ago, as it never happened, here it is.

The time taken for the two lettering files from scan to finish, the background, including one background element was well under 4 hours.

Well, some may point out that it could be better, sure, or another choice of wording perhaps, the point is, that with combined efforts, time constraints should not be an issue.

Conclusion:

Production time is now much swifter. Also paying much more attention to file types used over the past couple of years to ensure size aspect & resolution stays exact.

This is not as comfortable as splashing paint, but holds awesome possibilities alongside older digital languages/work that could have been pitched. Keep everything.

This would look just as good, better in fact, in paint…

‘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.

Alice la Vie can be found over at her social network pagehere
