Where is Wally? But really, where is he? Can't seem to find him. This could be a nice idea to use on wallpaper. I am trying to find a solution for an 'interactive' wallpaper and this might be it. ('Waar is Wally : Op ontdekkingsreis' Martin Handford)

Bar Choq. The very first place I will design a wallpaper for in Antwerp. Except for the nice coffee and oh so tasty hot chocolate with brownies this small cozy cafe offers a wonderful atmosphere. You can pop by for a cup of tasty goodness and have a look at the many books and magazines laying around or just to have a chat with Jens the owner. A wonderful break.

These japanese erotic drawings are amongst the most famous ones. (1788) These drawings were made in a time of famine but great liberty. I am intrigued by their use of print on fabric. There is a clear evolution to be seen in the use of fabrics in these kind of drawings; stepping away from the very traditional all covering clothing and choosing for lighter fabrics (f.e. silk) sometimes even transparent ones.

For the anniversary of the School of Art and Design in Helsinki (TaiK) which was founded in 1871 a big exhibition was organized with all of the great projects made over the years from students at the school. The airplanes we made for Blue1 were represented by a miniature version of 'Blue Flow'.

These 8 little books are part of the 'Parked car project'. You can buy them from Extrapool or read more about it on their website. The illustrations inside are stencil printed and therefor very bright in color. They are all hand sown with matching colors which ads a lil' something something to it. If you ask nicely you'll even get them wrapped up in the nicest wrapping paper ever.
