Vectorising Kafkaesque

I recently remembered to hit “RECORD” while I was working on a new vector design in Inkscape. The result is a timelapse video I uploaded on Youtube, featuring some awesome music by a Croatian band called Zlobnik. It took me a whole day to render video, but I did it! Yaaay! I’m quite happy with the outcome! read more

Let’s make these shoes a reality!!!

OK! Making shoe design on an old laptop is super challenging, but I just LOVE TO DO IT! Because it takes me a while to do it, I only made 3 different shoe designs so far – they are available in my Threadless artist shop: vonkowen.threadless.com/mens/shoes … But that’s not what I want to talk about right now… read more

INKSCAPE! – What it’s for and an interview ;)
