As an architect, teacher, artist and passionate observational sketcher Aarnoud works in between many disciplines. After his master-thesis “Fragments and Fractures” (deep dive in to comics and architecture) and his research project “Sketch Atlas” (video library of architectural sketching tutorials) drawing keeps inspiring him beyond his architectural training and teaching. Through mainly self-education Aarnoud learned to make many drawing techniques his own so he could set himself up as an artist and illustrator.
He still learning and figuring it out, but through many exercises, personal work, commissions and projects he gradually builds a portfolio for himself. Because of his background in architecture and skillset to design by hand, his artistic expertise lies in construction and perspective space. When not at work, he carries a sketchbook and a pen to fill empty moments or register interesting observations.
About this site
Because I make and learn many things in several disciplines, this site reflects upon this variety. As for an actual portfolio I’m making a separate section to quickly show what kind of artwork I can do.
Commissions and prints
Yes! I take commissions and sell work. For now only for my observational sketching. You can email me or go to my etsy shop if you are interested.
