Here’s the third edition of BLNC I have been involved in. This edition only has Asian contributors. The cover was shot in Bangkok by JIRA. The model is Tawan, winner of Asia’s Next Top Model.
A new issue of BLNC. For this one I shot the cover.
BLNC is an online fashion and art magazine based in Cebu, dedicated to the underground youth, the vague and the implicit.
For Robeco and The Royal Concertgebouw, I was asked to create a supershort for their midsummer concerts.
For Dutch startup Qlickr, I designed their first product: the ohello-app. It’s a very Dutch app, meaning it’s very direct and no-nonsense: designed for the sole purpose of meeting new likeable figures as quickly as possible.
See All This is a new magazine and online platform in the Netherlands for all art lovers. For the launch, HagensPR asked me to make a series of animations. For each participating museum (18 in total), I morphed some of their top pieces in that of another.
Illustrator Stefan Glerum, hero of the clear line, designed a 60ft-high Stained Glass Facade in Amsterdam. I was asked to photograph the interior.
The island is sprawling with cats. Cats without tails. I don’t know why and nobody seems to do so. My friends from Bandung say it’s because the locals cut them so they can’t breed. I need an explanation, if only to stop picturing cats breeding with their tails.
A friend of mine just moved to Peru. He mailed me to tell me he was planning to participate in an ayahuasca-ceremony. Now and then I meet people who tell me about their ayahuasca trip, it hardly ever sounds inviting: aya makes you puke, forget who you are and has the tendency to change your … read more
She’s so happy I am here now. We just moved grandma, this nursing home is much nicer. Of course she doesn’t recognise it as her home. At my arrival, grandma was on the verge of her grande bust-out. I bring her back to a chair in the garden. She is so small, grandma. Next to us, there’s miss Brauer, at … read more
Benjamin and I did a beat for the new Joe Kickass album. Download the digital version here for nada. Order the vinyl here. FYI The second Benjamin Diggins album will be released this year. Guest features will include Pseudo Slang, Blueprint, Dudley Perkins, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Nate Dizco.
‘But how will I know, where you are?’ Asked the swallow in despair. ‘We’re swallows, remember? We’ll always find each other again.’ The other swallow reassured.
I wrote this for a Dutch magazine ‘God of the Netherlands’. Clearly this is fiction: I for one would never order hummus.

Hyper Island (Sweden) students made an animation inspired by the last chapter of my first novel, Een rijk alleen. It’s quite creepy, very unlike the book. But I’m impressed. Erik Hellmouth – 3D Kristofer Nilsson – Cell Animations Kristian Andersson – Comp, 2D animation, Live Footage
I wrote this for Das Magazin After a year of travelling, I had planned a last, short trip. I was going to take the train from Montreal to New Orleans. The travels I had been undertaking earlier this year had brought me to places that were meant to form the background of my second novel. This … read more
