My inspirations, my heroes of the past 20 years.
Wytse Sterk : GoSterk Illustration & Graphic Design
I was born in Sneek, Holland 1975. I knew during my high school periode I wanted to go to Art School afterwards. So I went to Academie Minerva in Groningen in Holland.
Studied graphic design and tried different printing techniques for my designs.
After getting tattooed by and getting friends with tattoo artist Rinto Bekkema my interest for drawing, tattoos and rock and roll music grew fast.
I became a member and silkscreen poster printer of the Vera Artdivision in 2004. A Club For The International Underground, a Rock and Roll Venue.
When trying to find my way in designing and silkskcreen printing posters, I discovered my three ‘ingredients’ I loved most for my work; Tattoos, Rock and Roll and Comics.
These elements mixed together with a ‘Bold Will Hold’ attitude in my designs lead to my style.
I also love vintage tin toys, old stamps, and vintage matchboxes.
I work for bands, companies, tattoo shops. Creating logo designs, posters, making illustrative artwork and I’m a sucker for sad songs.
