I'm happy to announce there are some
special angel christmas cards available

Angel Billy
He tries hard to bring luck to everyone,
but I have to confess, he's still learning ;-)

Angel Milly (Billy's sister)
She is very good in fullfilling wishes...
Maybe if you send her to a friend, it works... :-)

inspiration: Diane Arbus and more...

Yesterday my brother and I went to the exhibition
of Diane Arbus I really love her work!
Her portraits are so significant.

If you have a chance to visit Foam in Amsterdam,
I would say: GO!

After that we also went to the renewed Stedelijk Muuseum
It's a nice experience to wander in the large rooms,
inspiring building and see a huge variety of art.

Here are two portratis from Marlene Dumas

We started our day with the Last Supper from Andy Warhol in De Nieuwe Kerk.
An imposant pink version of this painting.
We were not alowd to make pictures,
so I borrowed this from the internet:

You know what these are....?

Andy Warhol PUPPETS!!!
They sell them in the souvenir-shop of De Nieuwe Kerk.
My mouth felt open...

I was kindly invited by Ellen Vesters, a Dutch Illustrator,
to join in a fun game: 'Delcious Dudes Quartets'.

Each illustrator has a different theme and makes
four Quartets cards in the month November.

All the illustrators will post one card a week each friday
on twitter (follow hashtags #DD and #Quartets)
By the end of the month each set is complete.

I chose the theme: 'Marvelous Machos'
Here's my first Macho: 'Hairy Harry'

Movember 2012

It's Movember again! (the month formerly known as November)
is a moustache growing charity event held during November
each year that raises funds and awareness for men's health.

It inspired me to make this illustration.
You can also find it on Illustration Daily

Last year I made these two illustrations. Remember?
