Illustrations for iOS app

Illustrations for iOS app A visual holiday pack-list application. It was an idea by software developer LuuX to create an app where the pack lists are not the text files you’d expect, but where the user chooses images from several categories, with the option to colour them and customise the pattern. Once the list(s) have …

Animations for iOS app These were made for GetPacked, an iOS holiday packing list app by LuuX software using Adobe Flash and Blender’s Freestyle 2D renderer (for the suitcate).

This was made before I switched from Adobe Flash to Smith Micro’s Moho Studio Pro. I was frustrated with the rigging (bone tool) in Flash: around 2012 it was in any case so bad that it was taken out completely in the next version of Flash. I found it a pity because I have been using Flash since the Macromedia days, and I have always liked it. Anyhow, I found that Moho (then called Anime Studio) had much better rigging support, though it’s not without its flaws either. I’m currently experimenting with Blender’s Freestyle Rendering which produces very acceptable 2D-results; and the upcoming 2.8 releases of Blender for its grease pencil tool are even more promising

(What is financial guardianship?)

This cartoon animation was commissioned by Stichting Budgetzorg, a trust that provides (financial) guardianship for people who can’t do that themselves because of, for instance, intellectual disabilities.

It explains the concept of financial guardianship to an audience of prospective clients. Therefore, it could not be too dry or technical. Instead, I chose to explain things by telling a typical story that Stichting Budgetzorg often encounters in their work: people who get into financial trouble because they’re easy prey for the oftentimes shrewd strategies with which goods and services such as cell phones, electronics etc. are marketed. 

Stichting Budgetzorg helps these people by assisting or teaching them to manage their finances, negotiate a repayment schedule and / or quittance and, if needed, to represent their interests when dealing with authorities.

I found it especially interesting to create a story that clearly explains the content matter to the prospective audience and also approaches them in a positive way.
