special project

Last week I received an e-mail from Ingrid Chabbert,
a children book writer from France.
She is enthusiastic about my work.
She asked me to work on a project together :-)

She chose an illustration from my portfolio
and made a short text to it.
If you want you can see this illustration here

I've made two illustrations to this text again.
A very playful and challenging way of working!

I did join with three illustrations. You can find the contributions so far here

Happy Bird-Day!

My brother has his birthday today.
His favorite color is green and he loves walking
in nature among the trees and singing birds.

Today they sing especially for you, johbont.
Happy Bird-Day :-)

just a matter of practice...

Almost every day I start with a bikram yoga class.
Sarea, one of my favourite teachers has given her last class today.
She's leaving to France. This is my saying-goodbye drawing for her.
