Magic is an Illusion
About the artistArt curated by
First of all how did you enter the circle of awesome known as the Black Rock Collective?
If I remember well I paid one million in some strange currency to Aaron Hogg, bought Blair Sayer a sixpack and I got in.
Tell us a little bit about your ‘BRC series’ design.
When I start drawing I often have no idea what the result will be. I think you can see that clearly in this illustration. Strange things suddenly appear on paper and when I laugh out loud when I'm done that's usually a good sign. The bunny isn't really dead of course, it's just magic.
Which BRC project has been the most interesting to you as an artist?
The BRC card deck was a great project to be involved in. The result is awesome and I love the response it has gotten from the public.
Who is your favorite member of the BRC? (Don’t be shy, I’ll be asking all the others too ;)
I'm jealous of the great talent some of them have. The versatility of Aaron Hogg, the typography skills of Manos, the clean vectors of Tesko and the looks of Jublin.
Which members of the BRC have you met?
Manos in Greece, Steven Bonner in Scotland, Pascal Hoayek in Amsterdam and Zeptonn/Stinger/Jan Willem Wennekes lives in the same town as me, so we meet now and then. Most of the members live too far away, but everyone is hereby invited to Groningen!
Give us one piece of inside gossip on the BRC.
There's a rumour that Moss and Reilly are brothers. Or lovers, I'm not sure. I don't read the BRC tabloids.
Do the BRC have a secret handshake, if so what is it?
If you read the Da Vinci Code backwards, you'll know.
What’s next for the BRC?
There's a few new projects lined up, but I can't say much yet. Alright, two words: Grizzly Clown.
Which member of the BRC would you most like to collab with?
I really like people with a unique style. For that reason I think a collab with Sonmi could be interesting. Her work is amazing.
