Art: The graffiti van for the good cause

The guys from Haarlem, raising money to help KWF

Cycling is a big part of the future. It has to be. There must be something wrong with a society that drives a car to workout in a gym. Well.. 20 days, more than 2000 km, 18 stages, more than 100 kilometers a day. Piece of cake? Nope. But that’s what Pim, Neal and Frenk are doing this summer. Not for nothing, because during this grand event, they raise money for KWF to help in cancer research. They cycle and the homies Robin and Seppe follow them with a camper, make drone movies, cook them diner, and give massages.

My friends cycle, I paint

Nicknames like Drankie, De Stoemper, Tomba, Ploegleider en Het Duracell Konijn. Pfff… however they are my friends and of course their adventure makes me super proud. I’ve known them since high school and I’m happy they’re doing something useful for once 😉 Obviously they stole the whole camper idea from me, but I am happy I was able to help on that front. Cycling is their hobby and in my eyes, KWF is a pretty good cause. Since I can’t really support them financially, uh.. (emptied the sock under my mattress to keep the Benz rolling), I painted their logo on the side of the graffiti van.

Painting for charity – Support

To everybody who sees the Benz, I present Ploegmaats – Booyah! Logo exposure! The message? “Support”. I support the guys my way, which means you can too. Check out their website at to help them with their tour from Haarlem to John ‘O Groats and remember that all raised money goes to charity.


“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for charity I can tell you I don’t have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. If you don’t call me now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you, but if you do, I will look for you, I will find you and I will paint you something.”
