‘Looking at Time’ A digital experiment that ended up looking rather traditional

Eagle-Hunter-1500-844LaT-Video-Base

I didn’t expect to do much drawing this year as I was supposed to be working hard at the biography assignment. But the roof of my clients huge farm kitchen has collapsed under a tonne of snow, the budget for writing now obviously goes to French workers, beams and roof tiles. Therefore I tried the next step after finishing the ‘Ugliest City in The Netherlands’ series (It’s got a 3 Month exhibition!). I decided to mix the general effect of those images with my traditional pen drawing style. Resulting in an image built up by nearly a million tiny curvy lines. It was a nice project but I somehow had expected a more alienating image from 57 layers and complete control over colour sharpness and transparency. Think I’ll be trying something completely different next, a real challenge, like; no details.

Finally opened my web-shop at Curioos.com

Took me about one year since the invitation. Creating the shop is easy enough but since I had a lot of work waiting for this I didn’t really fancy the tedious job of formatting, uploading and adding key-words. But the work done, if you like my work you can now put it on the wall. Curioos.com insist they have high quality prints and T-shirts.

#13: Trawler Harbour. The final illustration in the series Ugliest City in the Netherlands.

The series end, just one day over my deadline. 2018 Will all be about writing, writing the biography for the last real adventurer [Bernd Schötz] and simultaneously rewrite the opening of my new novel using the expert comments of my writing award winning niece Ineke Holzhaus. No more drawing except for doodling.

The Hot Spring

The final drawing in this experimental series. Most important learning; I love details, can’t simplify or do ten minute artwork.
