Why do I distrust the work that is finished within half a day? Can it be that easy? I will show you when it's printed and you be the judge..

what are the odds

This week I had to make 2 illustrations for magazine X about television. They were placed independently of each other in the magazine, but there had to be a link in them somehow. I decided to do so by using similar hands in each drawing (A&B). 

Yesterday I was asked to make 4 illustrations for newspaper X about the 'truth'. This following month they will appear in every weekend-edition. They, also, wanted them to be related to each other, so you would see 'Ah here's yet another article about The Truth'. And the editor of the newspaper thought it might be a good idea to have 'hands' come back in every drawing..(C) What are the odds? In one week?

I've been asked to take part in this huge book, showing "the best Dutch talent". Ha, just so you know.. Last year's edition was called XXLbooks Photography 2011, the release of 2012 will display lots&lots of illustrations. I'm very proud to be among colleagues like Cyprian Koscielniak and Leendert Masselink.

So this morning was spend on making choices which illustration(s) I wanted to appear in the book. My number one choice was this illustration I made quite some time ago. I still get a lot of comments on it and if I had to make the same illustration today I wouldn't change a thing. ..And what do you know?! I DID have to make the same illustration today, for it was nowhere to be found! It's just so typical, god.
Took me about four hours, that wasn't so bad. And now, today's contest: spot the 10 differences and win this hot-of-the-press-limited-edition, printed on 310 gsm paper, signed&numbered! Mail your answers to and watch your mailbox. The one in your frontdoor. 

I'll grab another cup of coffee and get back to the piece I was supposed to work on today.

bringing it on

Yesterday my old-time-favorite-partner-in-crime Monique Wijbrands (drawings 43/44/45, only € 65 apiece; go watch&buy!) and I went to the Hague for the exhibition on contemporary graphic and illustrative art, Bring It On. Check out the Ship of Fools Gallery untill the 2nd of November. Over 170 affordable works.

Very characteristically I lost my vest and my art folder all in one evening. 
Got the vest back though..
