At an early age, Thomas Noordhoek decided his life should be full of excess. He succeeded all too well. To escape this absurd self-destruction, he started traveling, reading and drawing. After doing this for a while, he decided to make an album, resulting in 'De Blum', written by Gerben Hellinga and published by C.I.C. in 1992. Thomas Noordhoek makes illustrations for magazine Posse.
