6001 IS THE NEW 1060 ( EVENT )

Today you can find me at the cool and upcoming maker fair "6001 IS THE NEW 1060" in in an old car wash in Charleroi. A poor industrial city where a new generation of young creatives is changing things, slowly but surely. It's in the French-speaking part of Belgium, so I'll be practicing my Français again a bit more :-). There will be people showcasing zines, posters, accessories, clothing,..

check out the nice flyer below ( not by me )

ELVIS & BENNY ( ANIMATED SERIES )



Test episode for an own animated series concept I'm working on together with Stef Wouters (Haptic). Please share and let me know what you think. Detailed feedback highly appreciated :-)

Best friends Elvis & Benny have the most amazing wacky adventures in a desert landscape filled with ship wrecks and crazy creatures. They are both madly in love with the stunningly beautiful, but fiery Seahorse-mermaid Toucane. They play safely above the ground in Babette's treehouse, but danger lurks from below in the form of giant blue underground rabbit lobster monster Sandy. When in peril guardian yellow rubber duck-angel and shapeshifter Babette comes to the rescue.

Concept and Animation: Jangojim & Stef Wouters (Haptic)
Advice: Wim Tilkin & Ives Agemans (Cyborn)
Voices: Peter van Gucht, Anneke Caramin & Jangojim.

360° ELECTRICAL CABINET ILLUSTRATION

Last week 92-year old Belgian comic strip hero Marc Sleen inaugurated his own "Nero Stripmuur" mural in Antwerp. I felt privileged to design a 360° illustration print for an electrical street cabinet in front of the mural. It features a map of Antwerp with a walking tour that features all 10 comic strip murals. In connection with the mural I put in references to the comic Nero and to Antwerp and its maritime history.

ART GAMING - (EDITORIAL ILLUSTRATIONS)

I made a bunch of illustrations for an article by Michi-Hiro Tamaï about ART GAMING, a new wave in the world of games. The article is featured in the wonderful Belgian "24h01" MOOK project ( a 200 pages cultural quality crossover between a magazine and a book with no ads ). It's in French and it's beautiful. For the illustrations I was inspired by independent games like "Samorost" ( a personal favorite ), "Dys4ia", "That dragon cancer", "Fez", ...

THE VOICE MACHINE (ANIMATION ON TV)

After my live drawing on The Voice recently I was asked again to make a giant machine to be animated and shown during a performance of jury member Bent van Looy's team. This job was totally up my alley and it was superfun to see my work that big.

See the animation on tv here!

ALTERNATIVE PRESS LONDON (ZINE FEST)

My girlfriend and I had a great time last week at the Alternative Press Takeover zine fest in East London. Met loads of nice strangers and friends: awesome people like lo fi indie rock musician Joey Fourr, funny comic strip girls Lizz Lunney and Philippa Rice.

Globetrotting comic strip artist Steven Kraan and his girlfriend Willemien were so nice to have us over in Bedford. Great trip!

Here's our table. Yep, I drew eyes on my glasses.

Old mural in Bedford. Almost makes me want to start smoking. So cool!

THE CLOUD EATER ( BIG DRAWING )

I made a big piece for the great indie game festival "Free to Play" at the designcenter in Antwerp. I'm part of the group exhibition, but next to that there's of course loads of games to play on homemade arcades and other machines, a pixel wall, game-related fashion, loads of talks, game workshops and chiptune deejays.

Had loads of fun making this. Haven't done that much shading in a long time. Ink + watercolours. 50x70cm.

THE VOICE BEDROOM (LIVE PERFORMANCE ON TV)

I was asked to draw a bedroom live on tv on a giant piece of paper for jury member and musician Bent Van Looy's candidate Demi on the Flemish version of the popular tv show The Voice. Obviously a very basic drawing, but it was exciting to pull it off in less than 2 minutes live on tv with only one test the day before (that didn't work out). I eventually used liquid acrylics. Really fun experience.

Full video here!

That's me showing my ass in a white coat on tv!

JANGODOODLES #4 - SKETCHBOOK GALORE

Most of what I draw are doodles and ideas in my sketchbooks. In the past I didn't really post anything from my "treasure box of ideas", because I thought it wasn't good enough or uninteresting. But since I really love looking at other people's sketchbooks, I'm gonna start doing it more often. It might give some more insight in the ways I work.

USE-IT CROWD FUNDING ( ANIMATION )
















I made a silly animated video to support the crowd funding action of Use-It to make a smartphone app. They are a non-profit organization that makes great free alternative city maps for young travellers. It's a bunch of supernice enthusiast folks, so if you ever used a Use-It city map please consider donating a few bucks.
