Seeing the announcement and new trailer of The Last Guardian made me so happy that I wanted to create my own version of the two endearing characters.
So here is my homage to a guardian and its friend.

Together with developer Aran Koning I created a jam game for Ludum Dare #31. The theme was “Entire Game on One Screen”. The game is about a Manatee who’s in love with an Aardvark. Here you can download the result!

We ended up #2 in Graphics and #70 in Overall!

Vlambeer asked me a while back to create a piece to celebrate their 2.5 year existence. It has been almost 4 years now, so I think it’s more than time to say: congrats JW and Rami (and everyone who worked with them) for inspiring so many developers and for being awesome!
Can you discover all their games? ;)

Here’s my submission for Segazine! I always wanted to make a cute Sonic, so the Segazine was just the right reason to create him and his buddy Tails :) This song was in my head while making this!

I was asked by Liza Groeneveld of Invest Utrecht to create a design for a unique handout for her. Liza was looking for something playful and creative, which she aims to express through her work. I decided to use the city-arms of Province Utrecht and its lions as an inspiration. We both liked the the idea of Liza as the main character with a young lion friend playing around high up in the sky without fear. The four little cubes in the Invest Utrecht logo I turned into four statues to represent their playing field.

Control Magazine asked me to design an exclusive art piece for their Game Art of the Week feature. In the interview you can read more about it and my art background. Hope you enjoy! :) (And a special thanks to Kitty Calis for initiating this.)
PS The first concepts for the bear creature were inspired by a dream I had about cardboard layered animal sculptures. Hopefully I can use them for something else in the future.
