Some extra photos Masterclass Barbara Stok

For my groupmembers: here some personal photos made with my camera during the Masterclass Barbara Stok CBK Groningen October 27th. Hope you enjoyed it as well ;-)


On the Success of the Tulpi-seat

A nice publication in Get Connected - Economic Board Utrecht. How come the Tulpi-seats are such a huge international hit the journalist asked me: to start out with this is very good Industrial design, combine it with fun and social elements and you have a Dutch Design Award winner for the most original design. But most of all and most important: the users totally love it! Social design with a touch of flair that brightens up public spaces, you can't get any better!

Masterclass Barbara Stok CBK Groningen

Oh and how wonderful it was yesterday during the masterclass with cartoon/graphic artist Barbara Stok in the Centre for Visual Arts in Groningen (CBK). We presented our work, received feedback from Barbara and the other group members, and we of course also listened to Barbara's stories about her work (her latest book on Vincent van Gogh is doing really well internationally!).

Yesterday I received the news that I am selected for the Masterclass with my favorite Dutch cartoon artist Barbara Stok. Those interested were asked to send in a cartoon. I've been drawing a lot over the last few years, especially drawings with stories for toddlers. The visual here is just a little part of the cartoon. Super happy!

Forward Thinking ~ The Art of Transforming

Getting world cities ready for a more 'bicycle friendly' area would best be guided within 'transformational tools' like art and designplatforms. Stylepark features this project.. cool idea: "Do you like amazing art and design projects? Find more at Stylepark: — in Toronto, Ontario, Canada."


How does one adapt to the different directions we can take? Love this one : "After years of training as a professional ballet dancer artist Kylli Sparre made an abrupt course correction and decided to pursue conceptual photography. See the influence of dance in her surreal images:".

Oh London here I come I would say...look at this, saw this at Inhabitat's page: "A crop of larger-than-life woven willow mushrooms just sprouted in london's Kew Gardens!" I'm crazy about this gorgeous piece of art! Wouldn't mind having this in my garden, not at all!

The Coloured Bears..

This one is doing very well in all sorts of magazines, especially in the art areas. There are many amazing photos going around, but Architectual Digest just published this awesome one. "Emmanuel Perrotin and Dominique Levy team up to create two of NYC's must-see galleries—and they're both under one roof."


The Architect's Newspaper: "Mutant Message: Amazon updates designs for Seattle headquarters including three skyscrapers and a series of dramatic domes by NBBJ. Read more and see more renderings here: — in Seattle, WA, United States."
