Hey deviants!

I postponed my plans releasing a premium brush set (although I am working on it atm) and made a new brush set, exclusively for Brusheezy! It's called "Aurora Brushes", a vector abstract styled set!

Please check out and download the brush set over at! Don't forget to share this set with everyone! :D…

I'll keep you updated!

Hey guys!

I've been working on a big project lately, in particular a premium brush set that will go commercial in the near future. I'm working on a personal website at the moment to launch this premium pack on, and I'm asking you guys to help me with that. I'm a broke student, and investing in this project will take some time and money. Please feel free to make a donation to help me deliver the stuff you guys want to see!

Please donate to support me!…

To thank you guys for the support over the last years, here's a preview of my new premium brush set!

Thanks and take care!

Hey world!

Today, my dA-page has reached the mark of 10.000 Pageviews! As a relative newbie on this site, I'm totally relieved so many people have viewed my work, only after half a year. Thanks to all the people that download or just like my brushes; there will be more to come!

Secondly, I made some new photos these last couple of weeks. Here are some of them.

Hey guys!

First, I'd like to thank the new watchers for sneaking in my dev-page. It's been a while since I posted some actual words on this page. But it's going fine with me, and also with my artwork. My first brush set, Midnight City, has reached 20.000 views and 1.000 favs! Big thanks for the support. My other brushes are also doing great though! :la:

Some other good news, I will be featured in issue 67/68 of Advanced Photoshop!! :woohoo: I'm the lucky artist this time whose resources are going to be put on the CD. It's a huge honour, and can't thank the editors enough. I will also be featured on with some of my brushes. Also, my resources are used for a lot of t-shirts and cd's (some even on I-Tunes!) lately, regarding the notes and shouts I'm recieving. Keep doing that! ;)

Today I made some photos with my new Nikon D3000, in a beautiful forest near Tilburg, The Netherlands. Here are some thumbs:

Best wishes for 2010, and keep in touch, lads :wave:
