The Vector department
All my vector artwork that you see below is built from scratch with 100% vectors . Exclusively using vectors allows to re-scale images to any size without loss of quality. All vector artwork was created from scratch. Update sequences and additional information on them can be seen in my portfolio blog. Click the images and links (in red type)  below to see their stages of creation. There is nothing that can't be done in vectors that can be done in pixels. You will notice that a number of works still need to be completed (for various reasons), but that is how I work. So please stay tuned to see the end result. Enjoy your visit and spread the word!

Crossing Death's Frontier

Death marks the end of ones presence in this material realm and the continuation of existence in an other. Commonly there is little knowledge about what is on the other side, mainly because most don't spend time to investigate the matter of what being is like when life is no longer bound to matter. Such an acquit was less common in other times, but since 'esse est percipi' began to dominate man's reason, this type of comport faded, that lead to the situation in which human no longer aware of what existence is like after (s)he has crossed the frontier of death.

Vladimir Putin

The president of Russia has lead his country out of the dire situation his predecessors left him. Putin doubled the minimum wage, reduced inflation from 12% to 2% and halved the unemployment rate in his first term. So for the average Russian he did a great job. Besides that he gave the US deep state war mongers a run for their money. Western press reports a rather gloomy picture of mister Putin, not presenting a lot of convincing evidence for their biased opinions. Putin is one of the few world leaders who dares oppose the WEF, that plans to wipe out 90% of the world population.

Monique Klemann

This is Monique Klemann who used to sing in the Dutch group Lois Lane with her sister Suzanne. MK has intriguing mystical and stylish looks, which prompted me to create this portrait. The late great Prince invited her to perform in the supporting act of his show. As always he had a keen eye for female beauty and talent. But MK decided to follow her own path through space and time thereby declining much greater acclaim, while in doing so preserving her integrity.

Abe Lincoln

A successful wrestler (he won 300 fights and lost only 1), self-taught lawyer, legislator and vocal opponent of slavery, was elected 16th president of the United States in November 1860, shortly before the outbreak of the Civil War. Lincoln proved to be a shrewd military strategist and a savvy leader: His Emancipation Proclamation paved the way for the abolition of slavery.

Abe Lincoln was assassinated because he introduced the Greenback issued by the United States government, thus taking power away from privately owned banks. Anyone who plans to exit the physical domain, should just go against the bent policies of the corrupt banking system.

Crystal Reed

CR played the role of the ruthless Sofia Falcone in the movie Gotham. Her facial traits and mimicking skills allowed her to play that role in a convincing way. Main objective of this work was to create hair with custom vector brushes to save time while remaining realistic. Affinity Designer allows strokes and brushes to be given a variable, fully customizable width, gradient colour and opacity which is exactly what is needed to create realistic hair textures. Vector brushes, by the way, are based on bitmap renderings, which actually makes them pseudo vectors. Before rendering an image of a particular size, containing these, this matter therefore has to be taken into consideration, in order to prevent undesired pixelation.

Salvador Dali

Spanish surrealist painter that was well known for his excentric looks and behaviour. His full name was: Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, marquess de Dalí de Pubol, which indicates that he had a nobility background.  This vector image was created entirely in Affinity Designer.

Emma Hardinge Britten

American EHB was a psychic in the English Modern Spiritualist Movement. She was consulted by high ranking politicians and business people, because she could provide valuable advice concerning policies, strategies, future events and helped rid them of ailments. She was a co-founding member of the Theosophical Society in New York in 1875, but around 1889 she decided to change course, because she felt that there was a insurpassable demarcation between Theosophy and Spirituality, not dismissing the verity of the former. If you would like to see the progress sequence and read more information on the creation of this portrait, please visit my portfolio blog by clicking here.

David Bohm

In this vector portrait of David Bohm I used various drawing techniques to achieve the proper appearence - 'painting' with custom vector brushes, drawing shapes and strokes and the Huion graphic tablet to draw the hairs. This is a work in progress (as of July 17 2020). Click here to see the update sequence in my portfolio blog, read more information on how the drawing was made and information about the life and work of the hyper intelligent and emphatic David Bohm, as he layed down in his 'Implicate Order' treatise.

Robin Williams

Vector portrait of Robin Williams created in Affinity Designer. 100% vector, zero pixels. Williams past away on August 11, 2014 in what is believed to be a tragic act of suicide. Great comedians are smart people, which is required for making good comedy, but they also also have an empathic character, which often causes them to see the harsh reality of life much more clearly than the average person. Click on the link to see the progress sequence and more information about the portrait in my portfolio blog.

2x Elvis graphic portraits

EP is an American rock & roll legend. It is commonly believed that Elvis has left the building, but some deny it anyway. Other sources claim that he wasn't too friendly towards his partners some of whom were a bit younger than he was, which is rather strange since he could have had almost any woman that he wanted to have. I mean, the looks, the money and fame were all there. A tutorial in Affinity Designer on 'How to avoid hard edges in vector portraits' can be found here.

Graphic self portrait

Many artists in the history of human art have created self portraits, so I figured I could not not draw one. Click this link to see the sequence of progress in my portfolio blog. I used an X-mas  2014 photo as a reference image, because since those days I have grown far too old and ugly to clutter up this website. This image shows me in my strange persona, which, to be honest, is normal for me.

Vector Butterfly

This was an exercise to create organic shapes (curves and strokes) in Affinity Designer, that take more time and effort to make in vector drawing programs of the competition (most of which I have worked with for two decades).

CFM-56 Jet engine

The CFM56-3 is one of the most successful jet engines in civil aviation. This image was drawn for KLM's Technical Training Department to prove that creating tech art in CorelDRAW requires less time and is visually more appealing than art made in AutoCad. It took CorelDRAW one third of the time to draw this image that AutoCad required, which version at the time (1995) was only black and white.

Tech presentation

Technical presentation created in Rhinoceros 3D / Cinema 4D of a horticultural growing lamp and ballast (power regulator). A small company I used to work for once sold 300,000 of these in one sale to a Russian agricultural company, which was quite a hassle to actually produce within the limit of time agreed upon.

Eaglehead guitar in 3D

I've tried for years to get some decent sounds out of a guitar, but miserably failed at these attempts. I did however manage to create a proper guitar in 3D in the Rhinoceros program.

Nostalgic Grails logo

This neon effect logo was created in Affinity Designer.  NG sells vintage apparel, footwear, accessoiries and collectibles. Nostalgic Grails salespoints at:
Depop as Hunting4Grails

Colourful Coaching logo

I drew this concept vector logo for a coaching company of youth to be in Affinity Designer.

Capricorn sign

Capricorn, the western zodiac sign. The mix of land and marine life forms makes it different from the other symbols in the zodiac.

Celtic Tree of Life

The tree of life symbol is often used and rarely understood. Click on the image to visit my VectorWhiz blog to read about it. It is part of my quest to live life in a different way, one that aims to offer ways to escape from the cyclical prison that this illusory reality actually is.

Would it kill you

To the mentally challenged that feel addressed. Getting the facial expression correct within the restrictions of emoji design, was what I tried to achieve. Especially the asymmetric aspect of the expression in the face is what I focussed on. Take a peek at a few other emojis I drew, here.  To all emojis alternative versions are added.... There is a version for evil people as well, here.

Renault Alpine A110

At this time (April 17 2020) this A110 drawing still is a work in progress, but the contours of this beautiful car are already becoming clear. It is my all time favorite vehicle, designed by the brilliant Giovanni Michelotti.

Range Rover Evoque

The Evoque is a fine example of superb modern minimalist and refined car design. Land Rover design chief Gerry McGovern was responsible for the eye-pleasing design of this most elegant vehicle.

View to a kill

The jag in the image above is the people, the caiman is the New World Order. The jag kills the caiman on the near (river) bank, that uses fake currency, while behind them the liquid (liquidity) current (currency) of the river continues to flow. On the far side of the river is its other bank that is no bank and uses decentralized crypto currency as the new way to pay. It will be the post NWO era currency, in which the centralized banking system will have been drowned in the blood of the people.

Secret of the desert

Times of transition require to travel to different places and times, which often results in rough rides if movement is physical. But far beyond the horizon of awareness and sight of most, guides and guards accompany the travelers on their journey towards their destiny for this stint of existence in the material domain.

Welcome to our loft, dear food

Each predator is prey to an other one. The biggest, fastest and strongest can be decked by a small yet virulent micro organism that stealthily finds a way to the predator's vulnerable inners where it can undisturbedly do its destructive work. It is just a metaphor of course, because reality is nowhere near being real, really.
