I quite get the hang of it now. Wish you all good week and thanks for your comments on my last post and saying what you think of these new drawings. And yes, if I could I also would like to make them bigger but I don't have the space and I already have problems where to put all my my large "pippi"drawings. But on the other hand I like it that you have to take a closer look to see what is going on here….

What do you think? First piece in this new series is ready. It's difficult to take a good picture, just to be sure: the words are "I said don't worry it's not going to hurt". I'm not sure about the thread, if I should leave it that way. I think I decide that when I made some more of these drawings.
I wish you all a good start in this new week!

I don't like to celebrate valentine, I think it is to commercial and it is much more a surprise if you get a gift or card by surprise and not on an specific date (accept for your birthday of course ;-) And in the shops you see this weird mix of sweet stuff you can buy, mostly with cute bears or other animals or the sexy things for the ladies. It gets really strange if you see them mixed together… Maybe you have noticed that I don't draw a lot of cute bears so I go for the sexy lady. Whatever you do today or this weekend, I hope you enjoy yourself, valentine or not!

Last weekend an idea for a new series of drawings popped into my head and since then I have been working on them. I love that feeling when you get that energy boost of trying something new, that you are all excited by yourself. It is even better when that idea turns out the way you want it to be! Lately I wasn't sure which way I wanted my drawings to go. Every now and then I get this feeling. I could continue to make those large drawings with pencil of the girls with weapons and I still love those but I get bored. I could make more but why? Then I tried the drawings with ink but I wasn't completely happy with those. I thought if I make some more then maybe…. I felt like I was floating between things. And now I can't stop working! The drawings are a combination of a printed computer-drawing where I stitch words onto. Both things take some time doing. As you can see I kept the color red, haha! Normally I get doubts between drawing number 6 and 12 but lets not think about that for now, lets see were this is going!

This weeks host for the drawing challenge is my wonderful blog-friend Stefanie and her theme is "daily project". I find those kind of projects great and every year I think to myself that I should start one to, but at the same time I'm scared that I can't keep it up for one year. This year I didn't start it because so much was going one with moving to another city and that sort of stuff, I did not know where to find the time for it. But for the last two weeks I had a daily project which I introduced to you HERE. It turned out to be a bit more work so I'm still working on my "thread-thingies". Not everyday anymore, but bit by bit now. I wanted to see how it looked on our door in the hallway so that's is why I worked on it for every day. Now I can slowly finish it and do something else in between. I made one big one for the door on the other side of the hallway:
For more daily projects please visit the wonderful blog of Stefanie!

I feel a bit like this drawing this week: funny and weird but also sort of angry… Well, just let it be for now, hope the frogs make you smile (I had those as a kid now I think of it;-) Hope you have a good week!

I while ago I was ask by "Sis and So" if I wanted to talk about what I do. They give creative (dutch) people who started a business, webshop or make things the opportunity to talk about that and they post it on their blog. They started this project and the goal is to post every day for one year a new post. You also have to send them a picture of you…. I don't do that often, I mostly send a drawing of myself, haha! But that would be to different from the other people who take part. So I managed to found a way to show something of myself… So this saturday it is my turn on the blog, you can click HERE but unfortunately it is only in dutch. So I give you something extra: some of the pictures who didn't make it and were you can see some more of me and my workplace. Have a good weekend!
