I HAVE A NEW WEBSITE UNDER CONSTRUCTION
The times are changing, and so should my website; soon to be released a fully updated fully responsive fresh bright new site, made in Berlin.
A new gig poster for one of my favorite bands: King Khan & his Sensational Shrines! I made a limited edition 4-colour screen print for their show at Le Guess Who? festival in Utrecht, Netherlands, at November 28th in Tivoli.
The poster will be exhibited and available at the poster show Le Gig Poster? that’ll be held during the festival in de Kargadoor.
New film poster for youth documentary by Astrid Bussink: Wolkoorts!
Wolkoorts (Wool Fever) takes place in the little village of Lievelde. Two groups of eighth graders are working hard to create the most beautiful wool parade car of the year. What starts off as fun, ends up in a true battle between boys and girls. The film will premiere at the Cinekid Festival 2013, Amsterdam, October 20th.
I’m excited to be participating @ Coloured Gigs 5 Dresden; a screen print gigposter show featuring poster artists from all over the world. The show is curated by Dresdner gigposter artist Lars P. Krause and takes place at Kulturzentrum Scheune. At the exhibition you’ll be able to see and also buy limited edition screenprinted artwork from some of the best postermakers around, most of them directly traveled from the famous Flatstock poster convention in Hamburg!
I moved to Berlin! A new environment full of fresh inspiration and lot’s of things to discover:
MAY / JUNE
Poster update: Thee Oh Sees -for Primavera Sound Barcelona (amazing show, thank guys!) check the webshop, they are still available in a very limited edition. And another poster for Vera Groningen; Thurston Moore’s new band Chelsea Light Moving . – Inspired, of course, by the song ‘Burroughs’.
FEBURARY I created a brand new poster for Vera, the first one of 2013; Bettie Serveert + Awkward I
JANUARY Already some good news at the start of the year, two logo’s are finished; Soepzooi (a soup-and more- catering company) and SterkeTXT (a text and communication bureau. SterketXT means strong text).
It seems very likely that the Impossible Machine will attend Flatstock Barcelona again in May, since the Primavera sound line up looks amazing and we cannot wait to work in the sun again. AND last but not least; both me and Mirjam will do a lot of teaching at Academie Minerva this year which is also very exciting. What a great start for ’13!.
Happy new year; I created this card which is a mixture of two of my favorite posters of last year. Believe me, I sent them out on time. Just updated my website a bit too late…
• TWO new screenprinted posters for the Vera Club; Sharon van Etten + Marisa Anderson AND Nomeansno + Yankee Sandwich. Those (last ones of 2012 already…) prints are available via my webshop after the shows have taken place.
• Astrid Bussink’s documentary Poule des Doods (Poem of Death) for which I made the poster, made it’s telvision debut this week. It had loads of very good reviews in the newspapers all over the country. We’re currently working on the dvd box – imagery soon!
Showcases well over 350 of the finest examples of rock poster art from the last 60 years. From custom-designed posters for provincial R&B and folk concerts in the late Fifties to the computer-generated images of today. Arranged over seven chapters. Each chapter begins with a concise overview of developments during the era. Features profiles, interviews and quotes of leading artists during these periods. Focuses on influential venues describing their history and their role in the development of rock art and rock music history. Features over 350 posters, flyers and handbills produced to promote both mainstream bands and sub-genres. With posters selected by Dennis Loren (largely from private collections and from portfolios of fellow artists), this is the most comprehensive and accessible visual history of the subject published to date.

30th: Premiere Poule des Doods (Poem of Death) September 30th, Nederlands Film Festival, Utrecht!
‘THE IMPOSSIBBLE MACHINE’ WEBSHOP IS NOW OPEN!
Again I had the honour of creating the poster fro Astrid Bussink’s new documentary. Her new film Poule des Doods (Poem of Death) has been selected for competition at the Nederlands Film Festival in Utrecht and will premiere September 30th! Poem of Death is a documentary about a group of poets in Amsterdam, who write custom-written poems and recite them at ‘Lonely Funerals’. They accompany the solitary departed to the grave, with a poem written for the occasion. In Amsterdam only, fifteen people a year pass away whose interment will not be witnessed. Be it nameless people, or people with a name, but without family or friends.
