JJ X Tucknee

Jan-Jaap Poot aka JJ, is a Dutch artist from Rotterdam, The Netherlands. His love for art started at a very young age when he observed the large drawings of Tom & Jerry, Sesame Street and other characters on his elementary school windows. Pretty soon he was putting more effort into copying the window drawings than paying attention in class. Soon JJ’s art became more complex by replacing drawings of Tom & Jerry for Spiderman, Spiderman for Escher and so on…

After graduating the Academy of Arts in Rotterdam, JJ started working in the local skate shop and at the same time working as an independent artists/graphic designer. His Tucknee design is “all about the lines”, the inspiration he gets for his designs comes from walking through the city, noticing some kind of light exposure or even just some geometric shapes. Next to painting and creating other types of art, Jan-Jaap loves to skateboard and play guitar.
