Together with Miss Delight I created a magazine in one (very long) day. The idea was to create something in a very short period. The zine is called ZIJN (which means ‘BEING’ in Dutch), and every edition we discuss a of theme in image and typography. Last editions theme was ‘SAMEN’ (‘together’ in Dutch), and the upcoming edition will be ‘blauw ZIJN’ (‘BEING blue’). We’re always looking for interesting input and content (in words) by others, so if you are interested feel free to contact us. You can also use this address to order a copy.
I have always been an illustrator with an great interest in other disciplines like graphic design and photography. Because of that I find it hard to profile myself. Is calling yourself an illustrator encompassing enough for all the things you do?
In this thesis I have researched the history of the craftmanship, so if our role did change, the way we profile ourselves these days and why we do that, and the impact of media on our workfield.
It resulted in a small booklet of five thousand words, where the edge if the page is constantly moving, just like the subject.
Last friday I officialy finished my internship. To accomplish this I had to write an essay about the past four months where I reflect on all the work I’ve done and goals I achieved. The main subject in my essay is that I find it hard to profile myself as an typical illustrator, because I think that a lot of people have misunderstandings about what being an illustrator means, and how broad it can be.
