Congratulations to Mike van Diem and First Floor Features for winning an Oscar on 23rd March 1998 (best foreign movie) with the impressive, pictoral Dutch movie: KARAKTER. - Writing several documents in a 1900-style handwriting was my much enjoyed contribution for it (of which the testament where i sign 'vader' is shown but in the very last minute...).
Another contribution was a handwritten contract as a requisite for a well-crafted Dutch TV-series
A page by George Ballantine originally written in 1881 was a work in 1999. The lettertype 'Ballantine' was used as a base for this assignment (of course completely handwritten, the computer does not the trick!).

With each design i attempt to detect, reveal or create accents / hidden messages.
Magical signs and words translated in everyday forms, and vice-versa.
