Music Production Academy presents: The Summer Course

You may recognise the name Music Production Academy (or shortly 'MPA'), because I have been working with them for over an year already. Started as an intern at the music school in Rotterdam, and worked myself up to a fully respected graphic designer. I am responsible for most of their banner work, poster work and their business cards.

Most of the time, there is a strict branding we have to follow. But for this particular instance, I created the banner for the Ableton Summer Course - Almost totally up to my own taste.

Compare it to the other banner I made for (another) upcoming Ableton Course. You'll spot the differences. The icon box has been moved to the left, and is now filled with 'Sunny Beach Blue'. Together with the repositioning of the other elements, it refreshes the whole thing. Nice.

Seck One - Graffiti in Spijkenisse - 2017

Okay, I (not so) proudly present: The first piece ever to be finished in two days... Because of the curved surface I was painting at the skatepark, my spraycans would run out of paint much faster than they would normally. On day one, when trying to get my outlines done with an almost empty Tar can, I realised that it wasn't going to work. 

So after a lot of swearing and throwing stuff around (Haven't been that angry for ages haha) I went home, to return to the spot to paint the last touches. Enjoy!

Graffiti Capelsebrug - Tricolore 3D

A quick piece today, with the sketch I posted on Instagram a couple of days ago as an inspiration. I borrowed a GoPro Hero 5 from Paul, but as it was the first time filming with a GoPro and we only had a chest mount none of the lines are actually captured. I'm going to buy a headmount later on, so I hope we have better luck next time!

Piece is a conceptual one, with 3 shadows placed upon eachother. Enjoy!

Graffiti Couwenhoek - Toy Story 2017

As the weather was becoming better for the first time this week, we got out with our new Molotow Coversall spraypaint to get something done at Couwenhoek, Rotterdam.

I really like the new Molotow cans. Do they cover? Better than the more basic cans like Ironlak (especially the old ones), and better than the lighter color Molotow Beltons. They didn't really 'covered all' like they said on the can itself, but thats okay. Coverage on chrome is superb by the way. Because they're low pressure its more easy to get clean lines done.

Enjoy this 'Toy Story' inspired graffiti!

Chrome graffiti in Spijkenisse - The pole work-around

So yesterday the Tober and I got to Spijkenisse once again, to paint a quick piece at the Skatepark. 

It was going all well, but... When I finished painting my outlines, I was looking at my piece from a distance. I noticed the poles were painted white, and it didn't play well with the black background my piece had; Having vertical linework going across a piece, doesn't work most of the time. That is why I 'repainted' some parts of my letters on the poles. Take a look at the footage below!
