allround, almost

After assembling an IKEA shelving unit and then hanging it absolute straight to non-perpendicular walls, wallpapering her entire bedroom with eerie precision and exactly one (1) roll of wallpaper, today she managed to create her first perfectly matched two-colour textile screen prints. One might start to wonder if there is anything this woman cannot do? Besides writing about more significant activities in the first-person.. Or taking sharper pictures.

( ) ( ) ( )

What is this, rejection-week?! I had one of my - what I personally thought b├ęst - pieces shredded&chopped beginning this week. And, while still recovering of disbelief, just this afternoon another client called my icons-project (flaunted them in the blog below) into question. Much more gentle though (thank you from the bottom of my hypersensitive artist's heart) and I do agree I should chuck a few of them (the ones I didn't show you, for obvious reasons) and (yes) there is room for improvement. But still. That makes two rejections. 

Well you can't win 'em all. And besides that, all this misunderstoodness makes me feel inscrutable and.. artist-ish or whatever. Just don't make me feel it twice a week.

This project is taking forever to be published. I can't take it anymore. I'm going to give a few away now, don't tell anyone..

planet tropicana

Recently I was invited to participate in a publication made by Planet Tropicana, a new illustration platform founded by Dutch illustrators Sjors TomlowMing Sin HoLevi Jacobs and Saman Dezai. They made a limited edition magazine, printed in a special 2-colour Risograph technique, that was presented at the RAW Art Fair in Rotterdam. Having worked with a Risograph-printer myself for the first time a couple of weeks ago, I know this is not an easy task. Certainly no job for the impatient. I think their efforts have definitely been rewarded, it looks great!
