A bird




It is invisible to us It exists in solitude It knows it exists, but knows nothing more It pulls things in, pushes things out It grows spikes and builds walls It designs its own vicious weaponry It latches on to things It fights to keep holding on It attacks, it kills It creates things not meant for this world It lies, to you and to all of us It weaves dreams, like a spider It gets tangled up in its own web It gets crowded It gets messy It gets damaged It gets lost It crumbles Such is your mind, beautiful like a thunderstorm.

My Bio
Hey there! I'm Roel and I'm an amateur fantasizer, writer, doodler, webdeveloper and elephant. I conjure stories about spiders, ants, demons, angels, dragons, robots, unreal delusions, spaceships, extra-terrestrials, fish-people, undead skeletons and lots more, and I attempt to illustrate these stories here. I mostly make traditional sketches and doodles to express my ideas but I also know my way around Adobe Illustrator and I occasionally use Photoshop to add colour to my drawings.

When it comes to writing, my language of choice is dutch since that's the mother tongue of my brain. I'll occasionally attempt some english pieces though and I'll even translate dutch texts (all be it poorly). ;)

-I post my art on tumblr ->
-But I'm obsessed with other people's art as well ->
-Finally I have a portfolio site with some more technical school-related stuff on it. ->
I keep updating it as I keep learning more about webdevelopment
