Please don't judge me: tomorrow morning I'm leaving for a trip to Disneyland, Paris. I'm going with some family and friends, we're staying in a small house, so that will be fun! Actually I'm not that into Disney, the most movies I find to "sweet" (but I like to see how they animate the drawings and see them make the drawings). But I realy like amusement parks, especially roller coasters. So I wish you all a nice weekend and untill next week!

In the meantime I'm still working on my "pipi-girl-monkey-paintings". These are some sketches for the paintings I'm working on at the moment. So I'm working on some different things at the same time, but I like that. It gives me new ideas. Maybe in the future I create a "pipi-rabbit-monkey-girl", haha!

Here is another small painting of a rabbit-girl. I finished it today and I quit like it at the moment to make such smalls works. Just create a small world and think about nothing and let the colour take over. I like the birds in the background. The picture below shows the original computer drawing, I think I made that one in 2009.

Last week I posted a computer drawing of mine. I was thinking about making a painting out of the drawing.
I did and this is the result. It's a small painting, 24 x 18 cm. Of course it's different then a computer drawing, but I quite like this one as well.

I was in Amsterdam this weekend, unfortunatly is was raining but it was still very nice. There are so much nice shops with interesting and very creative windows. Of course they are often blocked by the typical dutch bikes.
A completely useless fact: "amsterdamned" is a dutch movie (1988) by Dick Maas about a mysterious diver hiding in Amsterdam's canal system embarks on a rampage of gruesome murders, terrifying city officials and leaving few clues for the city's best detective, who doesn't suspect that both his new girlfriend and twelve-year-old daughter may be closer than he is to finding the killer.
Oh, and I met some inspiring old, dutch painters ;-)

This is another computer drawing of mine. At the moment I`m going through my older work and somethimes I start working on it again, but in a different way. I`m thinking of making a small painting out of it, just to try how it works with paint and airbrush. These computer drawings have a lot of white, which I liked very much when I was making them. This one has actually a lot of white on the left site, so the rabbit-girl is standing in the corner. I cut that of for this post, otherwise you can't see the rabbit very good. In a painting this would change and it becomes probably something else. I like this one, the shoes are much to big for this rabbit-girl so who does she wants to be?

I used to make a lot of computer drawings, which I printed and framed for exhibitions. Every drawing was only printed once. So even it is made on the computer and I could printed as many as I wanted, every drawing is unique and an original. This drawing is special though, it's printed on a bigger size (40 cm x 60 cm) and there are 25 copies of it and numbered. It was made for an online sale and later for an exhibition.
Now I found the extra ones that where printed as a test and I decided to frame one for myself and hang it in my room. I still like the drawing, especially the bunnies:

Did anyone see the movie Black Swan? It's now in cinema's in The Netherlands. I quess you heard about it, it's so present in the media. But if not, it's about a ballet dancer who wins the lead in "Swan Lake" and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan - Princess Odette - but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odette's evil sister, Odile, the Black Swan.
I wanted to be a ballet dancer wenn I was younger, but at the age of sixteen had a complication at my knee and surgery followed. Bye bye dream! But after seeing this movie I guess I can be glad it didn't work out, haha. If you like ballet you would probably like this movie. I especially liked the dark scene's of the black swan. These drawings are my version of the swan.

This is going to be a weird post about my toilet, haha! I thought it could use something fun to look at. We have a small mirror hanging on the wall, so I took the mirror and made a bird out of it. I made the bird out of pur foam, it's a great material but not easy to control. I had fun making it and the toilet looks also better I quess ;-)

Just another drawing in my sketchbook. I'm not going to paint this one, although it would be fun to make a really big painting of this one: 200 cm high and 600 cm width and then these range of pipi-girls. I imagine it hanging in a big white room. A girl can have dreams, haha!
