the kindest of kisses

I made this drawing after visiting the zoo and I wanted to post it for last weeks drawing challenge "Nature" (check tinyWoolf!). Animals and humans are nature as well and I think we should be nicer to them and ourselves, but that is another story. This drawing gives me a calm and nice feeling and I wanted to post it anyway. Mostly because I need to be calm: I'm a bit nervous about this weekend. The exhibition where one of my drawing is opends on saturday...
I wish you all a good weekend and thank you for your comments on my last post. I hope this group picture becomes real;-)

drawing challenge

This weeks host for the drawing challenge is the lovely Nadine and her theme is "Nature". As I saw the invitation for this DC the first part of it was about our collective dream of meeting up and experiencing our weekly drawing challenge live! I was so exhited about this part and that Nadine really thought about it and wants to take it to the next level, that I made this drawing. I don't know you bloggers of the Dc in real live, but I imagine us meeting and having a wonderful time and this drawing could turn into a  group photo;-) I wasn't sure if should post this drawing because the theme is "nature" but then I just gave the girl in the middle a shirt with some colourful, abstract flowers!

Please go to the tinyWoolf blog for more nature, and have a good weekend!

plastic fantastic!

As I told you before I'm really having fun with the shrink-plastic at the moment. I posted the little magnets already and the bunny earrings. These are some other things I made: pendants and some more earrings. I like the simple way of drawing on it and then watch to see how it turns out in the oven. These are all for sale in my shop and there are some other products who have a 30% discount now.
Wish you all a good week!

drawing to the big city

happiness hit her, 150x230cm

Last week I found out that this drawing of me has been selected for an exhibition. I'm happy with that because it's in the city Den Haag in a well-known kind of gallery. The exhibition is called "Body in motion" and the funny thing is that it's about sport, hihi! The opening is in two weeks and I'll let you know how it turned out...

me, myself and...

..a giraffe!
This is me about 12 years ago and in my dreadlocks-period, I was still in art school and I had to make something for photography class. We went to a bridge which is over a railway but at that time the railway was closed for trains;-)
We put a swing on the bridge and a ladder underneath it, beacause there was no way that I could get on the swing without a ladder. I put on my mother's wedding dress and started swinging. It was so much fun! My teacher was not impressed.... Anyway, I just found the pictures and the video about this project and wel.... suddenly this giraffe turned up....
Good weekend to you all!

think, think, think!

That's the question, right? I often drive myself crazy thinking too much and then there's this point where you just don't know what to do. But I like these guys: two old toys of mine;-) I like to play around with toys, drawing and quotes these days. This design you can also find on my society6 page as a shirt, bag and more...
I wish you all a good week!

drawing challenge

This weeks host for the drawing challenge is Norma and her theme is "farn". I thought about their big, green leaves and I immediately had to think about a girl holding a fan in front of her face. You know, like in the old days, haha! When it's really hot outside and you saw the women with an attitude blowing cold wind in their faces using a fan. Maybe it's because it's so hot over here at the moment that I had this idea while the theme is a plant....mmmm, that makes me think. Anyway, I just had to draw this girl, holding the leaves and some of the attitude is still there....

For more farn please go to the wonderful blog of Norma!
