Painting murals in Toronto

From the very start of their venture I've been supplying my friends Justin and Alison of Borrel in Toronto with illustrations and art work. I've seen them grow from strength to strength with their Dutch food pop-ups at some of Toronto's hippest bars. After several sell-out events they decided to take the plunge and start their own bar/restaurant!

‘Borrel’ in Toronto

I recently got commissioned to make some drawings of typical Dutch dishes for a pop-up restaurant in Toronto, Canada. Every Sunday afternoon from 1 till 6 pm Dutchman Justin and his Canadian fianc├ę Alison host a 'borrel' in bar The Ossington on Ossinton Avenue. 'Borrel' is the Dutch word for having drinks. A 'borrel' is always 'gezellig'...

A day in Awesomestow

I had a wonderful day in Walthamstow, east London yesterday. I now totally get why this suburb is dubbed Awesomestow. A museum, vintage shopping, a warehouse filled with neon signs and a mircobrewery made it a great day out...

Pub Carpet Crawl #6

It's been far too long since I've organized a Pub Carpet Crawl. Though the last two London crawls were loads of fun, they were not very successful in terms of carpet-count, so I think I had been demotivated a bit by this...

Bare Naked Beer poster

Fresh from the press: the poster I designed for Cardiff based microbrewery Artisan Brewing to promote their monthly BAR OPEN event! Somewhere hidden away in the leafy neighborhood of Pontcanna is a garage is filled with an impressive array of kettles, pumps, pipes and hoses. This is where Simon brews his fine beers according to traditional recipes from all over the world.

Pub Carpet Crawl #2 – Now that the mist has cleared

I wasn’t sure if the second edition of the Pub Carpet Crawl could top the magical first crawl, but much to my relief this edition has really lived up to the high expectations! To be honest, it was somewhat disappointing on the carpet side, but this has been fully compensated by other unexpected finds and happenings. Now that – after three days – the mist has cleared I can tell you our story… F

PUB CARPET CRAWL #2

After a truly EPIC first edition, it is my pleasure to announce Pub Carpet Crawl #2!! On Saturday March 31st we will set out for the area of Roath in Cardiff. The route looks promising, with pubs ranging from charming locals to ‘interesting’ dives… We’ll meet up at 18.30 at the pub with the swankiest toilets in Wales (really a must-see, despite having no carpet!): The Ernest Willows on City Ro
