Jelmer Noordeman Interview by DonutChocula

Jelmer Noordeman

That is for you Art?

What I think is art.

Well the old saying "Art is in the I of the beholder" is a good one. also to me it is is: experimenting, experiencing and thinking.

To use tools to create?

At the moment I mainly use pens and markers, acrylic paint and spray paint. For paining I use flat brushes. Also I use a triangular one that is quite thick but has only one hair at the tip, great for details... And I use Photoshop (of course).

What is your favourite shape?

What my favourite shape is:
A triangle pointing down.

Mac or PC?

I used to have a Mac mini but sadly it died on me a while back.
So now I've got a PC to get used to again..
But I really like to have a brand new mac again.

Influences? Recommendations?

For sure my Girlfriend Kirsten Spuijbroek and my TJENKER-collective Buddy's Bjorn Narten and Pascal Brander (nr26) be sure to check 'm out.
