I share my creativity with the children

The little ones loved the coloring picture I’ve made

Some days people ask you to do something new. Like drawing and design a coloring picture as a marketing tool. Cool!! It was for Sinterklaas. The dutch saint who’s birthday we celebrate on december 5th. Head theme? Veggies!

The client let me down and decided she loved Christmas more. Yup, throw away all of my hard work and start over. But I didn’t. Of course I did not! I realized I could make a lot of children happy with it.

It’s all about marketing!

I opened my mailbox and typed in all the names of the people who had kids or who are working with children. Like schools, kindergartens or who just knew a bunch of them. Added my work.. send! Not for the marketing. But because I want to bring a smile to the faces of the little ones. And it worked… So f* ing well!

Spread the colours! Colorize together

What happened after was amazing 🙂 My phone started to dance by all the messages it received. Happy parents, thankful teachers and a lot of photographs of smiling children. It made me … how can I describe the feeling.. it made me ecstatic, euphoric, thrilled, elated, delighted, on cloud nine, in seventh heaven, jubilant!! This is awesome!!

I color the world.. and the children are with me.

TTYL!

PdeG draws for Branded Free against modern slavery

Whoop whoop, my drawing at auction for charity!

During a special event in The Harbour Club in Amsterdam last friday, people had the opportunity to make a bid and support the fight against modern slavery. The drawing I sponsored for this cause symbolised the deep emotional and physical pain that a lot of women suffer from.

Highest bid?! € 150,-

The charity: Branded Free by Shared Network

Branding. To highlight ownership. To tell the world: “Mine!”. The effects on the branded people? Their dignity, gone. Lost power of their own body! Captivity. The results are unreal. The majority of victims can be found in forced prostitution. Branded Free tries to save those girls. They are helping them to build up a new life. A free life. And… to cover up the brand marks.

My drawing at the event in Amsterdam

I was a sponsor, so were about 12 others with me. This special evening was filled with a silent auction, presentations about the charity from the organisation, sponsors and we even got to listen to the story of a saved victim. There also was a tattoo artist. She donated 12 tattoos for free that night, plus she’s going to cover the brand marks of some of the victims of modern slavery. Music and a bar. In short: a fun, super useful and hugely inspiring night. Thank you Branded Free, the work you are doing is amazing!

Byeeee!!

Whoohoo! www.artbypdeg.nl is online!

Check out my very own brand! The name? Art by PdeG

After the decision to start my very own brand was made, live turned into a rollercoaster. Amazing and crazy as hell. The ride turns out to be fantastic though. From telling people about my new adventures, registering my company name (Art by PdeG) and designing my own logo. I love it! My business cards are traveling the world faster than I am, and now my website is online. Oof, the website. A steep hill to climb. However now though, I am a flipping pro. WordPress = mine!

Painting, drawing and my design work

Painting, drawing and my design work. I’ve been building my own style since forever. I have never had a solid response to the question “Paul, can you show me some of your work?”, other than “… ehm sure, look under some bridges…”. Until a couple of weeks ago. I saw the light: I need a portfolio. I need a website. I need to show my work to the crowd. Why? Because it gives me widest smile imaginable.

What do you think of my website?

Creating is my passion. But I’ve never thought building my own website would be so satisfying. Digging through the pictures I’ve taken over the years, criticising my own work over and over, again and again, only to discover which works I like best. Friend and family spontaneously started to send me pictures of the works I’ve made for them. “For your portfolio.”, they said. The support I get.. one word: ‘Amazing’. So this is it. This is my website. This is the project I’ve been working on for the last couple of weeks. What do you think?

Please, help me to conquer the world!

So I want to spread my artwork all over the world. Wanna help me become world famous? Nah, just kidding. Fame doesn’t thrive me. Just let me be creative and colour the world. However though.. if you have a project and no one else can help you, maybe you can hire the PdeG-team! Drop me an email at info@artbypdeg.nl and I will turn whatever you have, into amazing art.

Aight!
