About me

My name is Frank Martens, however after my graduation I decided to choose another name as a creative: Frank August. When I was a little boy, I drew lots and lots of eights. I thought eyes were fascinating to draw as well, but after one iris with a crazy amount of thin stripes that served as eyelashes, I often gave up and couldn’t be bothered to draw the other eye. “Why do you always draw an eigth?”, they said. Trust me, back then I didn’t understand the word ‘in nity’. Later, I realised two things: my second name August was accidentally also the eigth month of the year ánd concerning the word ‘infinity’, I became a true believer of ‘what goes around, comes around’. I’ve got a little circle tattooed behind my ear. Not that I would forget, but it’s more like a reminder, just so to listen to it more often.
