Illustration: Thrilling updates from Dutch doyen Jordy van den Nieuwendijk

Have you ever had a really hot neighbour? If so you’ll know how fatiguing it is trying to find excuses to drop in; “I wanted to check you were ok in the snow/could I borrow some Dijon mustard/did you hear a ghost last night?” That’s kind of how I feel every time I find myself once again lurking on Jordy van den Nieuwendijk’s website, unable to explain my presence other than an all-consuming lust for his joyous work. Thankfully Jordy never lets me down. There’s a host of new updates since we posted about him last summer; from murals to magazine covers and portraits to prints, with Jordy showing impressively mature mastery of his signature style. Check out the sober architects portraits for Apartamento Magazine for example to see how this exciting Dutch talent is evolving.
