Straight from the 'Wild West' of the Netherlands Joren Joshua (1990) serves his pertly and playful illustrations for the cool. In graphic balanced settings lanky characters pass by to reflect on daily life, in a humorous way. Strongly influenced by graffiti and printing techniques Joren tries to make his mark on commercial and personal projects. Doesn't matter what form or scale.
