Born in 1969, it took quite a while for Dutch illustrator and painter Ger Peters to find his right lane in life. After graduating from business school and working a zillion odd jobs, he eventually came around to the conclusion that he wasn’t executive material. Always feeling itchy fingers around a box of crayons and a piece of paper, his last time of getting sacked finally made Ger decide to take the plunge and try his luck in the field of freelance illustration. He aptly named his studio “Dutch Courage Graffix” and he hasn’t looked back since.
Ger’s artwork heavily gravitates around the field of Kustom Kulture and his drawings and paintings usually have more or less of a “cartoony” touch. He obviously has a predilection for automotive work, especially when it’s hot rod and rock-a-billy related. With All-American heroes like Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, Ed “Newt” Newton, Rick Griffin and Robert Williams pointing the way, Ger has already developed a style unmistakable his own.
The client list includes an international line-up of bands, clothing brands, speed shops and event promoters.
Ger lives in the small Dutch town of Heythuysen with his girlfriend Claudy. They have two kids together: Koen and Vera. If you would like to get in touch, Ger can be reached through www.DutchCourageGraffix.com or www.Lowbrow-Art.nl
