I have been a freelance illustrator since 2002. I started working for Yoast.com when Joost asked me to update his world-famous avatar (the one with the windmill). The end result was well received and this convinced Joost that the world was finally ready to see his true personalities. Many images of Joost followed. Because of this Joost keeps on being one of the most recognized, literally, SEO-experts in the world today.
Since 2012 I also provide every new employee at Yoast with their own avatar and more. As of december 2012 I have been added to that of employees list myself. I now work on ever more assignments, together with my wife Mijke.
Besides being the illustrator at Yoast, I’m an all-time geek whose interests range from Star Wars to dinosaurs, and beyond. I currently live with Mijke, our 2 children and my huge comic collection in Rosmalen.
