a touchy situation
This is the new Pippi-drawing (150 x 230 cm) that I was working on and this is the first time that I'm a bit scared to post a work... I wonder what you'll think of it. I think I'm a bit scared to post it, because this drawing scares me. I did now 7 of these drawings and all of the Pippi's are doing - or are about to do something violent. But in the other drawings the girls don't look happy, they have no choice. And I think that is just it, that makes me uncomfortable with my own drawing: the smile on her face and the fun she is having, running around with that knife. It's that typical picture of a young girl running through the grass in the summer.
