Branding and Promotional Illustrations for my Portfolio
Self Initiated project regarding the branding and design of my website, logos and twitter background.
Wanted to promote my portfolio even further with this project and also have some more commercial
style work on my portfolio.
Main element of the illustrations is my portfolio, displayed on a variety of devices. These are a mix of
of 3D base layers illustrated and retouched in Photoshop. The style I went for Is what I think best
describes my work. Energy, flow, candy, neon, gloss, chrome, light and explosive were the key elements
of inspiration for this project.
Hope you like it!
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!
Rage . Fury . Intense / Mixed Media
Recent new piece that looks great on print, it is has a neat aesthetic to it from every angle.
I started using hand written words at the beginning of the year, so, this is a strong visual reference to most of my work now.
There is a simple system of arrangement and process to get the effect used here, which in terms of an identity development, is a good look.
Whilst colour is always a good challenge, and of course there is a need for it, some newer pieces are simple black & white.
My view is that there is still so much depth to discover between these two tones, yet colour is just as pleasing for colour specific visuals that warrant.
This works well. Oh, colour items on the way too.
‘Crack Whips Ride Hard’ / Mixed Media
This is an old type piece, rather than scrap it, I thought the you may like it.
Completed in three colours, black on white has more impact. Reviewing various + & – of using mixed media.
This is only a reference piece that has been printed, although it looks pretty good on screen.
‘Don’t write slogans, write truths’ – Joe Strummer
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.

Just posting my latest typography artwork!
Snake Bite / Keystone Design Union / Self initiated example.
Evaluating some new communication pieces, also trying out new machine tools alongside pencil. Everything is printed to get an overall feel of any artwork. Nothing truly lives unless it is outside of the box.
The type is based on ‘Wicked Grit’. Being a fan of alternative fonts that are not widely used, it really was put to good use here.
The overall composition is as intended, an explosive force.
Can be seen here: Tadaa!
Poster composition & Print / Charity
May I draw your attention to this months posting. When looking back over the past year or so, one steady item has remained. Something that all of you could do if you spare a little time. Over 3-4 years I have raised money for various charities by donating canvas artwork, mostly of an abstract nature. Yeah ok, ‘paint splashes’, Donated for charities that resonate with health issues that family members have faced, battled, won and lost. The article here this month is charity based.
The Royal National Mission To Deep Sea Fishermen – a charity that is vital in offering emergency and welfare support to families of injured, wrecked or deceased deep sea fishermen across the UK, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. Also for those who do not know, that during 2 World Wars, Trawlermen were an independant force whilst sweeping for mines and aiding evacuations.
The piece of work here reflects what I consider to be an Ensign, which was also the name of the first Mission ship. As the first part of the donation I am also taking part in a Night Trek across rough terrain which will also help to raise vital funding.
There are currently 50 copies of this modest sized gloss stock poster for keeps, with all procedes to be given fully to the Fishermens Mission.
You can now grab all the 24 prints for 12! www.kronex.net
