Frank van der Sman
[insert weird text in third person written by oneself, about their own amazing accomplishments and character trades] Frank is a lovely guy, really lovely, you should meet him one day. He was born one day in Rotterdam during the 1990 heatwave. The warmth must have gotten to him that particular summer and melted him straight in the shape and form of the gorgeous being he is today.
The guy enjoys good aesthetics. Like truly. Not weird after graduating from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. Branding that was. Really? How creative. Yes. And let me tell you, though he despites the fashion industry, well-made produce of any kind gets him going.
At one point in his life, he was very much into ultra-distance bicycle racing. Now he's retired. Though the bicycle still will always hold a very special place in his heart. So much so that the passion became a work affair, having worked for the likes of; Rapha, Speedvagen, SILCA, Lester Cycles, Brassworks, and Equipe Girona. And still as a marketeer for the nicest bike shop in the world, OBST&GEMÜSE.
His latest venture has been into tattooing. F*cking wild. It drove from drawing being one thing he enjoys most. As well as a deep appreciation for the humbleness of the trade. Whilst he realizes it will be a process, he's in it for the long haul, old trucker.
Anyway. Enough of the excruciating self-promotion. He's always keen to learn about any visual projects you're working on, and how he could potentially be of service. So say hello.
