I'm Stijn Claessen, born in 1975 in Lommel Belgium. Drawing was in my blood from an early age. The moment I could hold a pencil I started drawing.
At an age of 4 I won my first drawingcontest.
The last years of my turbulent school career I followed the art direction at the Francesco Pavilion in Herentals. I have to admit, I preferred to have fun then rather than do something for school. Oh yes… it is now .. let's call it youthful sins. At the time, despite my talent for drawing, I didn't go into that. I worked as a programmer for about 10 years, I got this craft from my father. Music is a great passion of mine, especially metal music. I have been playing guitar for over 25 years and have played in various metal bands.
In 2015 I started drawing again. I made drawings for friends and family, to which I received many positive reactions and multiple assignments. SCL Design was established after training in business management in that same year.
Since 2018 I am a draftsman for the Golden Book of the municipality of Berlaar.
