Pieter adores drawing with brushes for the freedom and looseness it allows, for the accidents along the road, the meanings hidden in an unexpected twirl of the brush, the possibilities uncovered by an splash of ink on the page. It is this energy  that he wants to transfer. 
He does book illustration, editorial work and commercial illustration  and specializes in live drawings, often of musicians in concert.  His clients include WPG editors, Oxfam, VRT and De Standaard.

As a young boy, Pieter Fannes wanted to become a comic book artist. In his teens, he shifted his attention to music. Almost by accident, he got a masters degree in history at the University of Leuven. After that, he started to work as an illustrator. In parallel, he pursues a doctoral research on creativity in Belgian elementary schools. 
Pieter lives and works in Brussels with his wife, their son and their cat, and tries to keep his days as uncomplicated as possible.
