IJmuiden South Beach


Number 5 of series two; having a little sprint in illustration. Needed to release some pressure after I had been doing too many useful things. Boring stuff helping to set up my wife’s new business. The good thing is; I make these rather quickly under the pressure of another wave of administrative boredom looming overhead. So I learn to accept looseness as a quality instead of failure in perfection.

Ghost in the Machine

GHOST IN THE MACHINE. A philosophical concept in which the soul is a separate entity. The ghost controls the body as a machine operator. This work was a technical challenge laid down by Rita Quattrocci to see if I could do broad brush work. Broad brush background, and rough pencil drawing. I’ve done it, now I will return to my usual detailled work.
