Tour de France ‘Druivenstreek’

My biggest work yet.

Although I live in Antwerp now, I grew up in the ‘De Druivenstreek’. ‘Druivensteek’ means ‘Grape region’ in Dutch. It’s a beautiful region made up of four villages south east of Brussels where they grow tasty grapes in greenhouses. You really should visit it.

On the sixth of July 2019, the Tour de France will start in Brussels and passes in Overijse (my hometown!) and the neigbouring village of Tervuren. I drew posters, designed a set of spot illustrations and made my biggest work yet: a huge 2,5 x 20 meters banner hanging in the city center.

Client: City Council of Overijse

Wall Painting Tom & Nele

A huge mural for Friends.

He is a big fan of antique tractors. She plays the saxophone. They both really enjoyed their hiking holiday to Switzerland and still had a blank wall left in their living room. The rest is history.

My Studio

This is where the magic happens

I’m always inspired by seeing someone else’s workspace. I’ll show you mine in the hope you show me yours. My workspace is small and in constant evolution. The header always shows the last setting. Here you can find the previous setups in reverse chronological order. Sometimes I tidy up before I take a picture, but mostly I don’t.

October 26 2018
Pre-October 2018. Yes, I tidied up this time. And yes, the panorama-function went a bit wonky this time.

Want to inspire me with your workplace/office/studio/hackerspace? Send me a picture at willem@willempirquin.be. If I ever get enough pictures I’ll share them on my website.

“Women are actually not that complicated”

Sometimes Jelle Goossens writes about life. He mails me these writings and waits patiently until I send him back a weird illustration. Experts might call this “a layered multidisciplinary cooperation”, but we don’t use these expensive words. We have no idea why we are doing this. Read Jelle on Jasperwiet.be (in Dutch, the language of Peter Paul Rubens).
